Joshua D. Carroll MARK’S "WAY" MOTIF AS INFORMED BY DEUTERO-ISAIAH: AN INTERTEXTUAL ANALYSIS OF MARK 1.2-3 AND 8.22-10.52 Thesis under the direction of Mary Foskett, Ph.D., Professor of Religion The Gospel of Mark is replete with words and phrases that point to the Jewish Scriptures. This suggests that the Jewish Scriptures were important to Mark and that they inform his understanding of Jesus. This study intends to examine the Markan "way" motif to show that Deutero-Isaiah plays an important role in the Mark’s reference to “the way.” To demonstrate my argument I will employ an intertextual analysis of Mark 1.2-3 and 8.22-10.52. These two sections provide evidence that Deutero-Isaiah is a significant intertext for Mark’s "way" motif. My conclusion is that Mark flips Deutero-Isaiah’s depiction of God’s victorious “way” on its head to portray Jesus’ “way” to suffering and death.
