VAN WYK, G.J.  and  VILJOEN, F.P.. Approaches to the interpretation of miracle stories in Mark 8 - 10. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.4, pp.879-894. ISSN 2305-0853.

Research on the miracle stories in Mark 8-10 and their role in this Gospel is discussed. The mythological, religious-historical, form-historical, Biblical-theological, redaction-historical, sociological, literary-critical, the research of Van der Loos and Brown, salvation-historical and revelation-historical research are discussed. Research shows that the kingdom of God, a paradoxal Christology and discipleship play an important role in the miracles and miracle stories in the Gospel of Mark. Miracles form an integral part of the gospel and ministry of Jesus. They serve to support the teaching of Jesus.
