Using both his background in interpreting biblical research and his interest in word-puzzles, nationally known journalist John Dart "decodes" the "Gospel of Mark", with explosive results that will shake the foundation of New Testament studies. Dart uses ancient, puzzle-like writing devices called "chiasms," which are found throughout "Mark", to reconstruct the original Gospel. By the presence or absence of these chiasms, he identifies sections of the Gospel that were added by a later editor, and he recovers passages from the "Secret Gospel of Mark" (a work discovered in 1958) that the pattern of chiasms indicates had been deleted from canonical "Mark". The results are stunning and certain to be controversial.
