Abstract

Erstwhile helpful historical and literary readings of Mark 6:14-29 traditionally give short shrift to the typological characterization of Herod Antipas as a tyrant in the gospel of Mark. This article addresses that gap by tracing the history and conventions of the tyrant typology and by drawing out the implications of the Markan characterization of Herod Antipas with the ancient stock features of a tyrant. Markan characterization of Herod Antipas not only exposes him as a tyrant. It also provides the rhetorical scaffolding for a thematic critique against tyrannical postures of any kind, including those that may have entered into Jesus' own fellowship.
