"The Two Gospels of Mark: Performance and Text, Danila Oder argues, for the first time, that the Gospel of Mark was initially an entertaining, secular play performed in Rome in 90–95 CE. The playwright known to history as “Mark” preserved the experience of performance in a narrative, literary text. That text, much edited, is the ancestor of the Gospel of Mark we know. In modern terms, Mark novelized a screenplay."
