Mark 10 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: Mark 10:41-45 – The True Minister

Mark 10:41-45 – The True Minister

|| Matthew 20:24-28;[1] Luke 22:24-27

MK10:41 Now when the other ten [apostles] heard of this they were very indignant.[2] MK10:42 Then Jesus asked them all to approach and told them: “You are quite aware that those who seem to rule the non-Jews lord it over them, and their ‘great ones’ exercise authority over them. MK10:43 But, it should not be the same among you.[3] Instead, whoever will actually be ‘great’ among you shall be your servant. MK10:44 Also, whoever will be ‘first’ among you must be the servant of everyone. MK10:45 For even the Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] came not to be served, but rather to serve, and to give his soul a ransom in exchange for many.”[4]

[1] Matthew 20:24-28: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] They were very indignant: We can see the ongoing problem with jealous ambition among the apostles.

[3] It should not be the same among you: Jesus is speaking to his twelve apostles. They are not to have one of their members lording it over the others. Such heavy authority did finally arise in the Church as foretold. [Acts 20:29, 30; 2 Thessalonians 2:4] This did not mean there was no legitimate “authority” within the Church. Compare notes on Titus 2:15 and Hebrews 13:7, 17.

[4] Give his soul a ransom in exchange for many: Or, WEY: as the redemption-price; GDS: to free many others. The Greek uses POLLON [much] and not PANTA [all]. Though the ransom of Christ is available to ALL it will actually only cover MANY. [Matthew 20:28; 1 Timothy 2:4-6]

MK10:32 Now as they were ascending to Jerusalem, Jesus went on ahead and this amazed them. As they followed they became frightened, but Jesus again took the Twelve aside privately and began to tell them what was destined to happen to him. MK10:33 He said: “Look, we are ascending to Jerusalem, and there the Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] will be handed over to the chief priests and Bible Copyists. They will condemn him to death and turned over to the non-Jews. MK10:34 They will mock him, scourge him, spit at him, and then kill him, but on the third day he will be resurrected.”

MK9:30 Now they left there and traveled through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know of the matter. MK9:31 For he was teaching his disciples, saying to them: “The Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] will be delivered up to the hands of men and they will kill him. But after he has been killed, he will rise on the third day.” MK9:32 However, the disciples did not understand what he said and were afraid to ask him.[2]

*

[1] Matthew 17:22, 23: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] Were afraid to ask him: Some have painted a picture of Christ that is passive and effeminate. Mark’s Gospel has shown him to be a strong and straightforward person with no timidity about speaking his mind. Here it is clear the apostles are intimidated and fearful. They have recently witnessed a severe public rebuke of Peter by the Nazarene, and they are very hesitant to even ask for more details about his foretold suffering and death.

Mark 9:9-13 – Elijah Has Come

|| Matthew 17:14-21;[1] Luke 9:34-42

MK9:9 Now as the descended the mountain Jesus ordered the disciples never to tell anyone[2] what they had seen until the Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] was raised up from the dead. MK9:10 So they kept this to themselves,[3] discussing with one another what this ‘rising up again from the dead’[4] meant. MK9:11 Then they asked Jesus: “Why do the Bible Copyists say that Elijah must come first?” MK9:12 Now Jesus answered them:[5] “For a certainty Elijah must come first [Malachi 4:1] and will restore everything. [Malachi 4:5, 6] How is it written regarding the Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] suffering many things [Psalm 22:6; Isaiah 53:3] and then being rejected? [Isaiah 53:3; Psalm 118:22] MK9:13 But, I tell you: Elijah has already come![6] And they did to him whatever they wanted, just as it was written.”

*

[1] Matthew 17:14-21: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] Never to tell anyone: Something like Paul’s own experience. [2 Corinthians 12:4] Peter writes of the experience at 2 Peter 1:16-19.

[3] So they kept this to themselves: This silence on where they went with the Nazarene could have caused the following argument of who was the greatest.

[4] Rising up again from the dead: The subject of the resurrection of Messiah in the Hebrew Bible is obscure and it is only until after Pentecost that Psalm 16:10 is used as the main proof of such. It is likely Isaiah 53:10, 12 also could be used.

[5] Jesus answered them: In his answer, Jesus alludes to several verses from the Hebrew Bible, though these probably escaped the disciples at the time, as it would most Christians today.

[6] Elijah has already come: Jesus’ own inspired interpretation of Malachi applies it to John the Baptist.

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.
