Nning that there will be a biblical theme to the story and the similarities between Jesus Christ and Baltasar uickly become apparent He is filled with kindness and has a knack for public speaking just like Christ His name is derived from Belshazzar the Babylonian king whose death was predicted by the prophet Daniel He is even the same age as Christ when he dies 33 After Baltasar begins to read the Gutres the Gospel of Mark several events occur that seem to indicate to the Gutres that he is in fact Jesus Christ First he performs a miracle by healing an injured lamb with a pill instead of with a cobweb the way the Gutres would have Next he is tempted by the Gutres daughter who comes to his room in the night and sleeps with him Finally he shows his empathy and lack of theology by telling the Gutres that all are saved from hell These three events convinced the uneducated Gutres that Baltasar was the messiah It is also significant that Borges chose to have Baltasar read the Gospel of Mark to the Gutres The Gospel of Mark is uniue among the ospels for two reasons First of all there is no Christmas story something that Baltasar obviously did not have in common with Christ The second is that the Gospel of Mark contains a theme called the Messianic Secret in which Christ keeps his identity as the Messiah a secret from all but the 12 apostles This would explain why the Gutres assumed that Baltasar was Jesus even though he made no such claim The Gospel According to Mark is both entertaining and cleverly ironic Even without Jorge Luis Borges allusions to religion and commentary on his time the story itself is fundamentally well writtenThe story is told in a somewhat whimsical manner through a third person narrative yet the reader is still The Oracles Golem (The Oracle given aood sense of the character s attitudes and persona The hero Baltasar Espinosa is set on his path to the countryside by his cousin Daniel out of the basic reason of ease We can see him as just a man like any other agreeing to something because it would be difficult to dream up reasons for saying no This serves to show that he is just a man like any other iving insight into his perspective on himself and creating a relate able character All in all his life seems rather standardHowever when he is in La Colorada surrounded by people with a very different background we see Espinosa open his mind and learn about life through different eyes In one example that Borges sites Baltasar learns how to ride a horse when approaching a settlement In the meantime the plot moves forward highlighting the misfortune of the people such as heavy downpour that results in the drowning of their livestock in terms of Biblical reference this would be the wrath of God It is especially here in the story that the man named Balthasar displays his oodness draws
parallels to Christ He provides a roof for the displaced Gutres family who happen to be illiterate Hence when to Christ He provides a roof for the displaced Gutres family who happen to be illiterate Hence when stumbled upon the only book in sight he read to them This is him as the hero imparting his knowledge on the people In the Bible the Gutres particularly took interest in the Gospel according to St Mark asking him to re read it so they could understand it better Espinosa s perspective on their lack of comprehension was that they were much like childrenBaltasar Espinosa did not understand it then but bit by bit his foreign knowledge coupled with their meek narrow understanding of
"Just A Single Passage In "a single passage in Bible was causing them to mistake him for Christ He didn t see that in the end they d worship him then hang him on a crossTaking this story and putting it in the context of it s time we can see that Borges was commenting not only on the dangers of such literal interpretations of the Bible but also such literal interpretations of communist and socialist manifesto Tor Andr Leon Talley's life and career are on full display in a poignant portrait that

stimulating text to read as a non religious reader I have always been interested by religion but have never readtext to read as a non religious reader I have always been interested by religion but have never read Bible myself Because of this my understanding of the stories in it are somewhat vague however the analogy to the life of Espinosa and that of Jesus Christ was easy to see right from the beginning From the fact that he s 33 years old the age Christ was killed to the commentary on Noah s arch during the flood the story mirrored Christ s rise and fall However what really struck me was that the story was of a commentary on religion and the practice of preaching The Gutres were illiterate people who had lost their ability to creatively think for themselves or make independent decisions In the end after Espinosa reads them the story of Christ s crucifixion they hang him on a cross believing this will be their ticket to salvation To me this was a direct stab at the idea of taking the Bible literally something that can have incredibly bad repercussions All across the world there are extremists who take their religious stories literally and often times use it as justification for crimes and actions This story showed how when taken literally the Bible can have the opposite effect Instead of preaching the teachings of Christ for a positive end it resulted in the murdering of Espinosa The Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges composes a twisted tale The Gospel According to Mark in which he raphically reveals the troubles and differences between the social classes that exist in Argentina He writes in a highly symbolic and ironic style as he weaves the story of the fate of the ood man Baltasar Espinosa The tragedy is full of paradox and situational irony that reveals itself fully in the last sentence of the story Borges writes from the point of view of a omniscient narrator as he voices his opinion of those of lower social classes and the dangers that can ensue when one trusts and tries to improve their condition Borges reveals that the characters in the story are below him in social class and that despite any efforts to improve oneself or others the essence of their being always remains The main character Baltasar Espinosa is described as one of the common run of young men from Buenos Aires perhaps not of the upper class who is an unsuccessful medical student Although widely intelligent the author notes he still had not ualified for raduation in the subject to which he was most drawn So even though he is intelligent and educated he appears to be destined to remain in the common class When he encounters the Gutres family Baltasar Espinosa describes them as barely articulate and none of whom could read or write But when left alone and isolated by rain at the ranch with them he turns to them for companionship at dinner and reads to them in the evenings Ironically the
"gutres who lack "who lack faith enjoy the Gospel According to Mark as it is delivered by Espinosa The reader himself is also agnostic and rejects most religious dogma and follows the evolutionist theories of the men of his time But Mark proves to be a dangerous introduction and although the Gutres seemed to improve in behavior the superstitious nature of their pampa Indian blood rang true Ultimately they sacrifice the man who has become their od in an odd form of homage and salvation Thus proving that it is difficult to change the nature or class of an individual because everything is seen from their existing point of view despite any attempts of improvement The construction of ironical events holds the readers attention as Baltasar Espinosa is transformed by the Gutres to be the central character in the Gospel of Mark In the story Espinosa possesses many of the ualities of Christ in that he is described as having.
