Summary

This chapter considers the reception of Mark’s Gospel in John’s text with special reference to the feeding miracle in John chapter 6. The following topics are explored. The first concerns how John reads Mark. In other words, what potential did the Markan rendering of this miracle-story have to offer John that answered to his purposes at that point? The second and main section will then explore how John writes his account. Put otherwise, how did John renarrate the feeding miracle not only in light of its Markan pretext but also as integral to his development and interpretation of its meaning in the chapter as a whole? The final topic will be a brief treatment of the further renarration of the miracle in chapter 21.
