I have been researching the episode about Mark 6:45-52 and parallels lately. Since it is relevant to the wider discussion this month about Christology, especially as this passage is often at the center of the debate over the Christology of Mark, I thought I would post a bibliography of some key studies:
- Ballentine, Debra Scoggins. The Conflict Myth and the Biblical Tradition. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015.
- Collins, Adela Yarbro. “Rulers, Divine Men, and Walking on the Water (Mark 6:45-52).” In Religious Propaganda and Missionary Competition in the New Testament World: Essays Honoring Dieter Georgi, 207-227. Edited by L. Bormann, K. del Tredici, and A. Standhartinger. Leiden: Brill, 1994.
- Combs, Jason Robert. “A Ghost on the Water? Understanding an Absurdity in Mark 6:49-50.” Journal of Biblical Literature 127.2 (2008): 345-358.
