Exegetical Notes on Mark 10:42–45. Who Serves Whom?

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The aim of this essay is to offer some marginal exegetical notes on Mark 10:42–
45, concerning the precise relationship of service and authority that the text
entails. Particular attention will also be given to the question of who is a διάκονος
to whom in this text. The essay is focused on furthering the discussion about
diakonia as it has been fueled by the exegetical insights of Collins and Hentschel
in particular, which the author thinks to be convincing at large; interaction with
secondary literature will, therefore, concentrate on that part of the discourse.
Its main characteristics will be outlined first, next a number of narrative and
contextual observations will be offered that prepare and lead to a discussion of
the question “who is a διάκονος to whom” in this pericope.
