‘BUT YOU, WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?’ A HOMILY ON IDEOLOGICAL FAITH FROM THE GOSPEL OF MARK

Piet Naudé

Abstract


This article attempts to reconstruct the nature and effect of an ideological faith
through a careful analysis of the Markan narrative. Originally a sermon, the article
argues that the question of Jesus’ identity is the leading question in the gospel. The
misunderstanding of those closest to Him – the disciples – provides interesting clues
into self-interested faith. The article ends with the question of how the resurrected
Christ can indeed deconstruct ideology and commission the disciples anew. In the
footnotes, a commentary on the South African situation is provided.
