Mark 1 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: Mark 1:14-15 – Kingdom Has Drawn Near

Mark 1:14-15 – Kingdom Has Drawn Near

|| Matthew 4:12-17[1]

MK1:14 Later, after John had been thrown into prison, Jesus came into Galilee proclaiming the Good News of the God. MK1:15 He said: “The appointed time has drawn near, and the Kingdom of the God[2] has drawn close. Repent and continue to believe in the Good News.”

[1] Matthew 4:12-17: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] God: As in most other occurrences the article precedes God. Here the Greek is TOU THEOU [of the God], elsewhere it is HO THEOS or TON THEON. [See notes on John 1:1]

Divine: Or, KJV: God; GDS: divine; MOF: divine. The Greek is KAI THEOS EN HO LOGOS. This THEOS (god) is not the same as TON THEON (The God) of the former phrase. The Greek, unlike English and other languages, only has the definite article (HO = the). When the article occurs it indicates a specific thing; when it is lacking (anarthrous) it means one of many or a type. Many view THEOS here as an adjective describing a quality of the Logos. More than a dozen translators have rendered this “a god” ÿÿ whereas another half dozen have used “divine.” ÿÿ Some Trinitarian scholars give a severe paraphrase here: BAR: and the nature of the Word was the same as the nature of God; NEB: what God was the Word was. These do not solve the problem but create even greater mystery and confusion. The argument between Trinitarians and Unitarians will continue as it has in the past.
