I have heard, so I'm surely not the only one, that Mark's Gospel moves basically from miracle to miracle, and if you remove all of the miracles, there is virtually nothing left. So I thought, why not test that?
Now Mark is a good choice for this question: most scholars think it is the earliest gospel; it is the shortest canonical gospel; it is reputed to be sourced from an eyewitness - Peter. So it gets a great deal of attention. All I'm going to deal with here is my basic question: is Mark's Gospel non-stop miracles?
To answer that, below I'm reproducing the whole of Mark's Gospel in the copyright-free ASV version. Clearly miraculous stuff I have pit a line through,
The stone which the builders rejected,
The same was made the head of the corner;
12:11This was from the Lord,
And it is marvellous in our eyes?
