The second main part of the Gospel of Mark, the passion narrative, begins

Hamburg, At the Außenalster
Hamburg, At the Außenalster

according to the transcription, like the first part, begins with an overture (13:3-37), in which motifs from the overture to part 1 are taken up again.

The four disciples Peter, Andrew, James and John are mentioned in 13:3. The keyword arche (=beginning, foundation) from 1:1 returns in 13:8.

The question when? from 13,4 had already been answered in 1,15: the time is now fulfilled.
