Many thousands of years ago, two prophecies came into being - and a moment was fixed, when only one would determine the future. This moment - a clash between the maimed god Torak and the descendant of the Rivan king, is approaching. Garion, brought up as a farm lad but now beginning to understand the extent of his part in the prophecy, and working hard to control his sorcerous power, is travelling towards this meeting in a sinister tower where the evil god lies sleeping. With him is the wise sorcerer Belgarath. And Ce'Nedra - a wilful young princess who refuses to believe in sorcery. But is terrified that Garion will die in the coming confrontation.

The problem of oral tradition is well known, for without some theory of this medium no history of Jesus would be possible. This study examines Mark 4.1-34 in the light of three distinctive models of orality: Rudolf Bultmann's form-critical method, B. Gerhardsson's 'Memory and Manuscript' theory and the recent contribution of W. Kelber. The form-critically separate units in the test (allegory, parables and aphorisms) are examined on the basis of their attestation in various documents (Mark, Q, Thomas) to determine whether independent versions of these sayings can be identified and what they tell us about the oral phase and Jesus. This analysis suggests that the criteria for authenticity of 'distinctiveness' and 'multiple attestation' need to be re-examined in light of the folkloric understanding of orality.
