Description - In the Company of Jesus by Elizabeth Struthers Malbon

This volume explores the way in which the characters other than Jesus are portrayed in the Gospel of Mark. The author employs a literary approach that reveals the contribution of these minor characters - the 12 disciples, Bartimaeus, Jairus and his daughter, the women who followed Jesus, and the Jewish leaders - to the Gospel story. After outlining the four elements of narrative criticism - characters, settings, plot, and rhetoric - the author discusses each of the characters that appear in Mark's Gospel, showing how they advance the narrative by their interaction.
