Generous act that leads Jesus to speak about his martyrdom Faithful even to Jesus' death, burial and resurrection. Simon James John Andrew Philip Bartholomew Matthew Thomas James, son of Alphaeus Thaddaeus Simon the Zealot Judas Iscariot "The disciples are fairly dense in the first two parts of the Gospel, and in the third they leave Jesus to his fate"
-Frederick J. Murphy, An Introduction to Jesus and the Gospels (p. 128) "The disciples in Mark do not function as foils, as negative examples, as if Mark were encouraging hearers to attempt to succeed in their discipleship when the very disciples chosen by Christ himself failed. Rather, Mark would have his hearers look to Jesus, who alone was faithful unto the end."
-Leroy A. Huizenga, Solus Christus: The Mark an Contrast between Jesus and His Disciples (p. 412) "If we take the Gospel whole, however, attending to the story of the twelve disciples as they are actually portrayed, it is difficult to find anything but unmitigated faithlessness and failure from the middle of the story to the end. Mark's Gospel must be about something other than discipleship."
-Richard A. Horsley, Hearing the Whole Story: The Politics of Plot in Mark's Gospel (p. 97) Jesus' Relationship to His Disciples Intimacy

Jesus eats with his disciples
Jesus goes away with them Overlooking
Jesus once overlooks the lack of faith by the disciples and doesn't mention it. 8:1

Judas Iscariat decides to betray Jesus when he sees how little Jesus cares about the moneywasted on anointing him (It was greed, not a dislike of Jesus' attitude towards him.) 14:1

Jesus is betrayed by Judas with a kiss and is abandoned by the disciples after he doesn't put up a fight (he did not hold it against them, but saw it as a fulfillment of prophecy) 14:43

Peter follows Jesus and Peter denies Jesus three time before the rooster crows twice. Peter suddenly remembers and breaks down crying because he has betrayed Jesus. (Peter is scared at first,but you can see the remorse after the event) 14:66 Teacher

Jesus - "But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee." Mark 14:28

Young man dressed in white- "Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen. He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you." Mark 16:6,7 How Jesus Viewed the Betrayal The purpose of our project is to examine how Mark portrays various characters in his gospel and to explore how Jesus reacts to the actions and faith of these same characters. How the "little characters" function in Mark's Gospel
A "little charater" is any group or single individual who only appear for a brief moment or who come and go from time to time throughout Mark's Gospel as a whole.
Although they do not function as a character of their own they do function as narrative elements or factors in some of the major characters. "Little Characters" as a whole
Very diverse in their identity, how they react to Jesus, and their significance in the narative thus difficult to establish specific character traits for them.
However some character traits that are common to many of them are:
-Having faith
-Being persistant
Gerasene Demoniac (Mark 5:1-10)
3rd account of demon possession in Mark's Gospel
Most graphic account of demon possession
In region of the Gerasenes (Gentiles)
People react negatively to this healing because of killing of pigs
No Messianic secret Gerasene Demoniac
Gerasene man falls down on his knees illustrating faith that Jesus is Lord.
Illustrates Jesus authority over the demons and power to bring peace to chaos.
This man serves as first missionary sent out by Jesus, he is Gentile sent to Gentiles. Jairus' Daughter, the bleeding woman, and the Syrophoenician woman
All three were some how "unclean" (dead, bleeding, Gentile)
Both Jairus and the Syrophoenician woman falls at Jesus' feet- this shows not only the faith they had as Jesus as Lord but also their humility.
Both the Syrophoenician woman and the bleeding woman were persistent.
Little Children and the Rich Young Ruler (Mark 10:13-30)
Both illustrate traits of the Kingdom of God as opposed to the kingdoms of the world.
Both illustrate what kind of discipleship Christ desires and where the disciples fall short of these expectations.
Condemnation of Pharisees
Hypocrisy Tradition had become more important than their adherence to God's commandments. "Watch out, Beware the leaven of the Pharisses and the leaven of Herod." In Mark 12:28 one of the "teachers of the law", sometimes referred to Joseph of Arimathea, is told by Jesus that he is "not far from the Kingdom of God." Jesus' Roles to His Disciples
