I've uploaded a paper to Academia's site. It's about the significance of the intertextual echoes in the two major Markan lake scenes and their significance for Markan narrative Christology. Specifically I employ the category of "expected readings" in order to suggest some very subtle but weighty Old Testament imagery applied to Jesus. In the end, I determine that the narrative leads the implied reader to the conclusion that by what Jesus says and what Jesus does, Jesus' identity is made equivalent to the identity of the God of Israel. If you find this interesting, perhaps you'll take a look at it here.
