Mark 3 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: Mark 3:1-6 – A Withered Hand Cured on the Sabbath

CHAPTER THREE:
SABBATH GOODNESS, APOSTLES, AND RELATIVES

[“He is Crazy”]
Key word: Associations

Mark 3:1-6 – A Withered Hand Cured on the Sabbath

|| Matthew 12:9-14;[1] Luke 6:6-11

MK3:1 Now Jesus entered the synagogue again and there was a man with a withered hand. MK3:2 Everyone was closely watching Jesus to see if he would heal on the Sabbath so that they might bring a charge against him. MK3:3 Then Jesus told the man with the withered hand: “Rise and approach!”

MK3:4 Now Jesus asked the audience: “Is it lawful to do good or harm on the Sabbath? To save a life, or to kill it?” But, everyone remained silent and gave no answer. MK3:5 Then Jesus looked angrily over the whole audience,[2] grieved at the hardness of their hearts.[3] So he said to the man: “Stretch out your hand!” And the man reached out his hand and it was completely restored.

MK3:6 Now the Pharisees walked out of the synagogue and went straight to a consultation with the Herodians[4] in order to plot against Jesus.

[1] Matthew 12:9-14: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] Jesus looked angrily over the whole audience: Or, an angry glance. The Greek word is ORGES and means “wrath.”

[3] Hardness of their hearts: Or, obstinacy, minds were closed, callousness, indifference to human need.

[4] Herodians: See notes on Matthew 22:16. [Mark 12:13]

|| Matthew 12:1-8;[1] Luke 6:1-5

MK2:23 Now it came to pass that on the Sabbath day Jesus was going through a wheat field,[2] and as his disciples made their way they began gathering grains [to eat]. MK2:24 So the Pharisees told Jesus: “Look, why do your disciples do what is forbidden on the Sabbath?” MK2:25 Then Jesus said to them: “Did you never read what David did when he was in need and hungry. Not only him, but also all those who were with him? MK2:26 How he entered into the God’s House – during the days of Abiathar the high priest – and actually ate the Showbread – something against the Law except for the priests [Leviticus 24:9] – and also gave some to those with him?” [1 Samuel 21:2-7] MK2:27 Jesus also said to them: “The Sabbath was made for humans, and not humans for the Sabbath. MK2:28 Also, the Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] is Lord of the Sabbath.”

Mark 2:18-22 – The Question on Fasting

|| Matthew 9:14-17;[1] Luke 5:33-39

MK2:18 Now the disciples of John [the Baptist] as well as the Pharisees practiced fasting,[2] and so they approached Jesus and asked him: “Why do John’s disciples and the Pharisees fast but your disciples do not fast?” MK2:19 So, Jesus said to them: “Do the friends of the bridegroom fast while he is with them [at the wedding feast]? As long as the bridegroom is among them there can be no fasting. MK2:20 However, the time will come when the Bridegroom will be taken away. Then [my disciples] will fast in that day. MK2:21 No one sews a new piece of cloth on an old garment,[3] because the new cloth will tear away [when it shrinks]. Then the tear becomes even worse! MK2:22 Also, no one puts new wine into an old wine-skin,[4] because the new wine will expand and burst the old wine-skin. Then, not only is the wine spilled and wasted, but also the old wine-skin is ruined. No, but new wine must be put into new wine-skins.”

*

[1] Matthew 9:14-17: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] Fasting: See notes on Matthew 6:16-18.

[3] New piece of cloth on an old garment: The “new” cloth was the teachings of Jesus and the New Covenant. The “old garment” was the Mosaic Law and the Jewish rituals.

[4] New wine into an old wine-skin: The “new wine” is the Church of Christ with its “new teaching.” The “old wine-skin” was the Jewish religious system. Christ did not try to remold the Jewish institution, but formed what Paul would call a “New Creation.”

|| Matthew 9:9;[1] Luke 5:27, 28

MK2:13 Now Jesus went outside and again walked along the Sea [of Galilee]. A large crowd followed him and he continued to teach them. MK2:14 As he was walking along he passed by and saw a certain Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at his tax table. Jesus said to him: “Come follow me!” Instantly Levi rose and followed Jesus. MK2:15 Then it happened that as Jesus was having a meal in Levi’s house, many other tax-collectors and ‘sinners’ also sat together with Jesus and his disciples because there were now many that followed him. MK2:16 But, when the Bible Copyists and the Pharisees observed Jesus eating with these tax-collectors and ‘sinners’ they said to Jesus’ disciples: “How come he eats and drinks with tax-collectors and ‘sinners’?” MK2:17 When Jesus heard this, he said to them: “Those who are well have no need of a doctor, rather the sick do. I came not to call the ‘righteous’ to repentance but rather ‘sinners’.”
