Mark 8:34-38 – Disown Self and Follow Constantly

|| Matthew 16:24-28;[1] Luke 9:23-27

MK8:34 Now after he assembled the crowd, as well as his disciples, he said to them all: “Whoever wants to follow me must first renounce self,[2] and then shouldering a stake,[3] follow me. MK8:35 For whoever tries to preserve the soul will lose it. But, whoever loses the soul in my behalf and the Good News, the same person will preserve it. MK8:36 For what does it profit a person if the whole world is gained but the soul lost? MK8:37 Or, what would a person ever give in exchange for the soul?[4] [Psalm 49:8] MK8:38 So then, whoever is ashamed of me and my teachings among this adulterous and sinful generation the Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] will be ashamed when he returns in the glory of his Father[5] [Daniel 7:22] with the holy angels.”[6] [Zechariah 14:5]


[1] Matthew 16:24-28: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] First renounce self: Or, KJV: deny himself; WMS: say ‘No’ to self; PME: give up all right to himself.

[3] Stake: Or, cross. See notes elsewhere on STAUROO.

[4] Give in exchange for the soul: Possibly an echo of Psalm 49:8.

[5] When he ‘returns in the glory of his Father’: Or, comes, arrives. The Greek ELTHE means arrive and may imply “return.” The same word appears in the 3rd Century BC Jewish Greek version of Daniel 7:22 which foretells the advent of Messiah in his Parousia as his Father’s representative.

[6] With the holy angels: Possibly an echo of Zechariah 14:5.
