Mark of course, the only correct answer.
And ain't harmonization a heresy or something?
Often it is during our weekday Vespers. //:=)
EDIT: Without the tacked on ending, of course as well.
Why don't you like the tacked on ending?
I was being somewhat serious. I doubt anyone truly cares.
I think Mark is quite an incredible story. It is stark. It is sudden (then, then, then,). It is surprising. It is economic.
The Gospels were written for Christians. It ain't like the folks hearing most of the stuff didn't know the "ending". Much like Greek Tragedy this is an account of a story they knew but in a specific manner.
Mark is apocalyptic and quick. No human confesses Jesus as God (he is confessed at the Son of God of course at the point of his death). The demons know Him. Christ strangely doesn't want anyone to know his identity. Christ is not the boy-friend variety. This the Christ Matthew and more so Luke "soften" a bit.
And it is the story of His utter abandon and ends in shock and awe, if we keep to the older witnesses.
This is not a thorough critique. I am just riffing here. If you would truly like to get into why I think Mark really IS THE Gospel so to speak, especially I think for grasping the violence of the Gospel, we can.
One redaction I would make to the Mark and it is really a terrible piece of writing. I can barely read it as it ruins such a great portion of the text:
51 A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him, 52 he fled naked, leaving his garment behind.
Seems gratuitous. The betrayal of Christ and everyone fleeing is enough, this just seems "tacked on" for real.
Of course, eventually Mark would have to end up with an account of the Resurrection.
But I like to try to read Mark as new Christian hearing the Gospel recounted in such a systematic way for the first time and being left with that ending. It raises many questions about OUR response to Christ and OUR abandoning Him and emphasizes the radical and unexpected nature of His Resurrection even among those most faithful. The women.
Again off the cuff. I would probably cave on more than a few points above. Just trying to give you a general idea of where I am coming from.
