Mark 1 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: Mark 1:35-39 – Private Prayers and More Preaching

Mark 1:35-39 – Private Prayers and More Preaching

|| Luke 4:42-44

MK1:35 Now early in the morning while it was still dark Jesus rose early, and leaving the house he went away to a lonely place and there continued in prayer.[1] MK1:36 And Simon and the others searched everywhere for him.[2] MK1:37 When they found Jesus they said: “Every one is looking for you.” MK1:38 Jesus told them: “Let us go elsewhere into the nearby country villages that I may also preach there, because for this [reason] I have come forth.”[3] MK1:39 And he went through all of Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out the demons.

*

[1] A solitary place and there prayed: Several times Mark describes Jesus as a person who enjoyed his privacy. [Luke 4:42] Men who often go alone into the mountains or deserts are sometimes supposed by others as eccentric or abnormal.

[2] Searched everywhere for Him: The Nazarene has isolated himself well. He wants to be alone.

[3] God: Jesus was not God. He came from God. A possible allusion to his pre-existence.

|| Matthew 8:16[1]

MK1:32 When it was evening and the sun had set, people came bringing Jesus all who were sick and the demonized. MK1:33 The whole town was gathered at the door. MK1:34 And Jesus cured many suffering badly with various sicknesses. He exorcised many demons and would not permit them to speak, because they knew him to be the Christ.[2]

MK1:29 Then at once after leaving the synagogue they left with James and John to the house of Simon and Andrew. MK1:30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law was ill in bed with a fever, and so without delay they told Jesus about her. MK1:31 So he went to her, and taking hold of her hand he raised her to her feet. Her fever left her and she began to serve them.

|| Luke 4:31-37

MK1:22 The people were astounded at his teaching, for he was teaching them with authority, and not as the Bible Copyists.[1] MK1:23 Suddenly right there in their synagogue there was a man possessed by an unclean demon.[2] He screamed out: MK1:24 “What is there between us,[3] Jesus the Nazarene?[4] Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are[5] – the Saint of the God!”[6] MK1:25 But Jesus rebuked it,[7] saying: “Shut up! Come out of him!” MK1:26 Then causing the man to have convulsions the unclean demon came out of him with a loud shriek. MK1:27 Everyone was astonished, so they began to ask one another: “What does this mean? A new teaching?[8] One with such authority that even unclean demons obey his orders!” MK1:28 And at once the report about Jesus spread everywhere in the countryside around Galilee.

*

[1] Bible Copyists: Or, scribes. These were men who devoted their lives to making precise copies of the Hebrew Bible. We see their fingers stained black from ink, and the older men with arthritic joints from such labors.

[2] Unclean demon: Or, impure spirit.

[3] What is there between us: See notes on John 2:4.

[4] Jesus the Nazarene: Note the designation used.

[5] I know who you are: Note both the “us” and the “I.” It is the view of some that these spirits [demons, or fallen angels] knew this person during his pre-existence.

[6] Saint of the God: Or, the Holy One of God. The demons use TOU THEOU [HO THEOS]. The language is understood by some to allude to Christ’s pre-existence.

[7] Rebuked it: Or, him. The Greek AUTO can permit “it.”

[8] A new teaching: Or, doctrine.

Mark 1:16-21 – Becoming Fishers of Men

|| Matthew 4:18-22[1]

MK1:16 Now while walking beside the sea[2] of Galilee Jesus saw Simon and Andrew, Simon’s brother. As they were fishermen they were casting their nets into the sea. MK1:17 Jesus said to them: “Come and follow me, and I will make you fishers for men.” MK1:18 At once they left their nets and followed him. MK1:19 Continuing a little further he saw James the son of Zebedee[3] and his brother John. They also were in their boat mending the nets, and he immediately called them. MK1:20 They immediately left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men,[4] and they went and followed Jesus. MK1:21 So they came to Capernaum, and on the next Sabbath he entered the synagogue[5] and began to teach.

*

[1] Matthew 4:18-22: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] Walking beside the sea: We see the Nazarene’s footprints in the sand.

[3] Zebedee: Or, Zabdi.

[4] Left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men: We can imagine the look on his face as he sees his sons leave for a life he could not begin to imagine, nor could history at this time.

[5] He entered the synagogue: There is a synagogue uncovered by archaeologists here that was built by the charity of a Roman centurion. Later Paul will follow the Nazarene’s example in using the Jewish synagogue system as the frame work for the beginning of Christianity.
