Kähler, Martin


Kähler, Martin
(1835–1912)
Professor of Theology at Halle who maintained that the quest for the historical Jesus was futile; it is in the preaching of the Church that Christ is truly met. He is famous for observing that the gospel of Mark is really a passion narrative with an extended introduction consisting of isolated units. The study of these individual units was to be the chief concern of Form Criticism.
