He Saw the Significate of Jesus' Seeing Denoted by the Verb Eiden in the Gospel of Mark: The Significate of Jesus' Seeing Denoted by the Verb Eiden in

J. Palachuvattil

This book is an edited version of the doctoral thesis which examines the special nuance of Jesus' act of seeing that is expressed by the verb e?de? in the Gospel of Mark. The Evangelist Mark uses the verb in three occasions. The first is one of baptism of Jesus (1, 11), the second is one of the call of Jesus' disciples (1, 16.19; 2,14) and the third is that of Jesus who sees a great throng and has compassion on them (6,34). This work tries to establish the bond of communion that connects these three events. Jesus' experience of communion with the Father and the Spirit as he sees the heavens being torn open, moves him to share it with a group of disciples as he sees them. He later extends the same communion to a throng of people as he sees them.
