Abstract I place Mark 10:45, one of the most-discussed verses in the gospel of Mark, in intertextual tension with the final episode of the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Read through this lens, phrases such as ‘son of man’, ‘give his life’, and ‘ransom for many’ acquire significantly different meanings than they do for Christian-canonical readings. This leads to re-evaluation of the control that the canon has over readings of biblical texts, and the prospects for non-canonical reading of the Bible.
