This chapter uses amputation and Jesus’s instruction to amputate one’s own appendages to discuss the question of bodily integrity as it relates to the resurrection. It examines the evidence for reading the saying literally and asks why modern scholarship refuses to consider the possibility that Jesus is encouraging bodily deformity.

Keywords:   Mark 9, amputation, bodily integrity, disability in the Bible, deformity
