“In this painstaking redaction-critical study, John R. Donahue sets out to disengage the layers of tradition from Marcan redaction/composition in Jesus’ trial before the Sanhedrin (14:53–65). Donahue’s goal is to lay bare the process which led to the extant trial narrative and to interpret the role and function of the narrative both in the Gospel and in the Marcan Sitz im Leben. … his work is a solid contribution to the literature of the Marcan trial and must be taken seriously, even if in disagreement, by anyone seeking an understanding of the trial and the Marcan purpose.”
—Theodore J. Weeden, Journal of Biblical Literature
