Mark 11 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: Mark 11:15-18 – Temple Cleanings Causes Opposition

Mark 11:15-18 – Temple Cleanings Causes Opposition

|| Matthew 21:12, 13, 17;[1] Luke 19:45-48

MK11:15 Now when they arrived in Jerusalem Jesus went into the Temple courtyard. He started throwing out those who bought and sold in the Temple courtyard. He upset the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold doves. MK11:16 And Jesus would not allow any person to carry a vessel across the Temple courtyard. MK11:17 Then he began to teach,[2] telling them: “Is it not written: ‘My House will be called a House of Prayer among all the non-Jews’? [Isaiah 56:7] But you have made it a den of robbers!” [Jeremiah 7:11] MK11:18 Now when the Bible Copyists and chief priests heard this they began to seek a way to destroy Jesus.

[1] Matthew 21:12, 13, 17: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] He began to teach: In his teaching Jesus refers to Isaiah 56:7 and Jeremiah 7:11.

Mark 11 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: Mark 11:7-11 – Entry Into Jerusalem

Mark 11:7-11 – Entry Into Jerusalem

MK11:7 They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their garments over it and Jesus sat on the colt. MK11:8 Others spread their garments on the road and still others cut down tree branches and spread them in the path. MK11:9 Now those in front and those behind all kept crying aloud: “Hosanna![1] Blessed is he coming in the YHWH’s name! [Psalm 118:25, 26] MK11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our forefather David[2] coming in YHWH’s[3] name! Hosanna in the highest!” MK11:11 Then Jesus entered into Jerusalem and the Temple courtyard,[4] and after he examined the whole view, since it was near night-time, he went his way into Bethany with the Twelve.

*

[1] Hosanna: Or, Save we pray, God bless him. The crowd quotes Psalm 118:25, 26 in their proclamation.

[2] Kingdom of our forefather David: Compare 2 Samuel 7:6. The whole scene is in fulfillment of Zechariah 9:9 though Mark does not go into detail here with his Roman audience.

[3] YHWH: The language is borrowed from Psalm 118 where the Divine Name occurs in the Hebrew Text. The Greek here may suggest YHWH originally belong here.

[4] Temple courtyard: The Greek is HIERON and is the word used for the entire temple compound with its various courtyards. The word for the temple proper is NAOS.

Matthew 27:51-54 – Temple Curtain Torn in Earthquake

|| Mark 15:38, 39; Luke 23:47

MT27:51 Now the curtain of the Sanctuary was torn in two[1] from the top down. The earth was shaken and rocks were cracked open. MT27:52 The tombs were opened and many dead bodies of [ancient] saints were raised[2] and became visible. MT27:53 And persons left the tombs[3] and entered the holy city. MT27:54 But the centurion and those observing Jesus, having experienced the earthquake and the other things happening, became very frightened. They said, “Surely this person was a Son of God!”[4]

*

[1] Curtain of the Sanctuary was torn in two: Between the Most Holy and the Holy of Herod’s temple was a curtain protecting the inner sanctuary. The Greek for “sanctuary” (or, Divine Habitat) is NAOU (Research NAOS). Many see this as God’s judgment on the Temple while others see it pointing to the way to heaven being opened. Compare Hebrews 9:3 and Hebrews 10:20. Both Mark 15:38 and Luke 23:45 mention the event.

[2] Many dead bodies of [ancient] saints were raised: Or, KJV: the graves were opened; and many of the bodies of the saints which slept arose; BER: bodies of the buried saints arose. Note that neither Mark nor Luke mention this while recording the earthquake and rending of the Sanctuary curtain. Some understand this to refer to a resurrection of the godly men of old. Nothing is reported elsewhere on such an idea. It is more likely that the earthquake cracked open ancient rock tombs spilling and exposing the dead. Jesus is described as “the firstborn of the dead” and he was yet to be resurrected Sunday morning (Colossians 1:18; Revelation 1:5). Compare 1 Corinthians 15:20-23.

[3] Persons left the tombs: Part of the crowd of pilgrims trying to get back into Jerusalem before the Sabbath began at sundown. Luke 23:48 adds, “And all the crowds that were gathered together there for this spectacle, when they beheld the things that occurred, began to return (to Jerusalem).” As these persons returned they observed the corpses exposed by the earthquake.

[4] A Son of God: The Greek is THEOU HUIOS or NASB: a Son of God. Luke 23:47 adds, “The army officer began to glorify God, saying: ‘Really this man was righteous.’”

Matthew 27 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: The Final Hours: Trial, Execution and Burial – #2 Matthew 27:3-10 – Judas Hangs Himself

Matthew 27:3-10 – Judas Hangs Himself

MT27:3 Then Judas his betrayer, having seen that the judgment went against Jesus, felt remorse[1] and tried to return the thirty pieces of silver[2] [Zechariah 11:12, 13] to the religious hierarchy and Jewish elders. MT27:4 He told them, “I have sinned by betraying righteous blood.”[3] But those leaders said, “How does this involve us?[4] You take care of that problem.” MT27:5 After throwing the silver pieces into the Sanctuary,[5] Judas left and went and hanged himself.[6] MT27:6 However, having picked up the silver coins, the religious hierarchy said: “It is not lawful[7] to cast the silver coins into the temple-treasury since it is blood-money.” MT27:7 After they took counsel they bought with the silver coins the Field of the Potter for the burial of unknown strangers.[8] MT27:8 To this day[9] this field is called ‘Field of Blood.’[10] MT27:9 Thus what was spoken by the prophet Jeremiah[11] was fulfilled: “And they took the thirty pieces of silver as how they put a price upon or estimated the value of one from among the sons of Israel. MT27:10 And they gave the silver money for the potter’s field just as YHWH ordered me.” [Zechariah 11:12]

*

[1] Felt remorse: Or, KJV: repented; RHM: smitten with remorse; TAY: deeply regretted.

[2] Thirty pieces of silver: This was the price of a slave (Exodus 21:32).

[3] Righteous blood: Or, KJV: innocent blood.

[4] How does this involve us: Or, RIEU: Why should we care; MOF: it is your affair, not ours.

[5] Sanctuary: The Greek is NAON or the Divine Habitat. There is disagreement on this exact location. Some, like Thayer’s, believe this to be the Holy Place, or first compartment behind huge doors. It is possible that where Judas met with the Jewish priests and elders was within offices around the Temple. He could well have thrown the coins under the front doors or even an open door to the Temple proper. Research the word NAOS for details.

[6] Hanged himself: Some suggest this was from a tree over a cliff which proceeded to break casting Judas’ body down to the ground where it burst open. Compare Acts 1:18.

[7] It is not lawful: The hypocrisy is unthinkable that they would consider what was legal or lawful to do with blood-money that they had paid for the betrayal of Jesus. A similar hypocrisy is shown in removing the body of Jesus before the Sabbath for it was not lawful to leave a body hanging on the Sabbath!

[8] Unknown strangers: Or, RIEU: foreigners; WEY: people not belonging to the city.

[9] To this day: This would seem to prove Matthew was composed before the complete destruction of Jerusalem.

[10] Field of Blood: Or, NEB: Blood Acre.

[11] The prophet Jeremiah: The quote is actually from Zechariah 11:12. There are three explanations why Matthew credits Jeremiah with the quote: a) Jeremiah led off the section of the Prophets; b) one ancient text uses “Zechariah” in a margin (Syh) and Syp,s omits “Jeremiah”; and, c) it is possible and suggested by some that Jesus has formed a conflate (a compound paraphrase) of Zechariah 11:12 and Jeremiah 18:2, 3 and thus the reference to Jeremiah as the prophetic source. For notes on Zechariah 11:12 when used as a “proof text” regarding the Trinity research Zechariah 11:12 in Nazarene Commentary.

judas hangs himselff

When Judas Iscariot, the traitor, learned that Jesus had been condemned to die, he repented & took the thirty silver coins back to the chief priests & the elders (214). “I have sinned by betraying an innocent man to death!” cried Judas. One of the chief priests dismissed him, saying: “That’s not our problem.” The looks on their faces told Judas that all the Jewish religious leaders were agreed. In anguish & frustration, Judas threw the coins down on the temple floor & left the temple. Overwhelmed with grief, Judas went outside the city & hanged himself.

Matthew 26:59-68 – False Witnesses and the Charge of Blasphemy

|| Mark 14:55-65; Luke 22:63-71

MT26:59 But the religious hierarchy[1] and the entire Sanhedrin Court[2] were seeking false testimony against Jesus[3] so that they might execute him. MT26:60 They discovered none who would come forward as pseudo evidentiary.[4] But at last two ‘witnesses’ came forward. MT26:61 One person claimed, “[Jesus] said, ‘I can tear down this Sanctuary[5] of The God and within three days reconstruct[6] it.’” MT26:62 Now the chief priest Caiaphas rose and said to Jesus, “Have you no answer? What about these testimonies against you?” MT26:63 However, Jesus remained silent.[7] Then the chief priest Caiaphas told Jesus, “I put you under oath down here before the Living God[8] so that you should tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of The God.”[9] MT26:64 Jesus said to the priest, “You said it.[10] Yet I tell all of you: In the future[11] all of you will see the Son of Humankind sitting on the right-hand[12] of the Power and returning[13] upon the clouds of the sky.” [Daniel 7:13; Psalm 110:1] MT26:65 At that the chief priest Caiaphas ripped his outer garments, screaming, “He blasphemed![14] Why do we need witnesses? See, you just heard the blasphemy! MT26:66 How does it seem to you?” But, these answered, ‘He is liable to death!’ MT26:67 Then they all spit into his face and hit him with their fists. Others slapped Jesus, MT26:68 asking, “Prophesy[15] to us, ‘Messiah’! Who just slapped you?”

*

[1] Religious hierarchy: The Greek is HARCHIEREIS from which “hierarchy” comes.

[2] Sanhedrin Court: Or, BECK: the whole Jewish court. Research Sanhedrin for notes elsewhere.

[3] Seeking false testimony against Jesus: Or, RIEU: were casting about for evidence against Jesus; NEB: some allegation against Jesus on which a death-sentence could be based.

[4] Pseudo evidentiary: The Greek is PSEUDO-MARTYRON. Or, KJV: false witnesses. Mark 14:59 adds, “But neither on these grounds was their testimony in agreement.”

[5] Sanctuary: The Greek is NAON a Divine Habitat and refers to the inner shrine of the Temple. Research temple or NAOS. Or, KJV: temple; RHM: shrine; GDSP: sanctuary.

[6] Reconstruct: Or, RIEU: build it. This charge is taken from John 2:19.

[7] Jesus remained silent: In fulfillment of Isaiah 53:7.

[8] I put you under oath down here before the Living God: This is the adjuration formula inferred in Leviticus 5:1. Or, KJV: I adjure you; RHM: I put thee on oath; NEB: I charge you.

[9] The Messiah, the Son of The God: The high priest has in mind Psalm 2:1, 7 and whether Jesus claims to be the Anointed One of that Psalm. Peter quotes this Psalm at Acts 4:24-26 and Paul refers to it in a Jewish synagogue (Acts 13:33-35).

[10] You said it: A Hebraism meaning “Yes.” In English it remains a positive statement to this day. Or, KNX: your own lips have said it; MON: I am he; GDSP: it is true. And, thus the response from the priest.

[11] In the future: Or, RIEU: the time has come; NEB: from now one, you will see; BER: shortly you shall see; MOF: in the future you will all see. It is possibly a Hebraism which means, “You will live to see…” or, “you will still be alive when such and such is fulfilled.”

[12] The Son of Humankind sitting on the right-hand: This is a conflate or compound paraphrase of Daniel 7:13 and Psalm 110:1 – a combination which appears several times. Note Daniel 7:13 refers to the ascension to heaven of “a son of man” and is seen from Daniel’s heavenly perspective (Daniel 7:15).

[13] Returning: The Greek word in both Daniel 7:13 (LXX) and here is a form of ERCHOMENON which may meaning coming, leaving, returning. It is virtually a synonym for PAROUSIA judging from the uses in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. It seems to some that it is possible Jesus is referring to his foretold ascension to heaven as Daniel 7:13 predicts. On these details see commentaries in Nazarene Apocalypse© under Daniel 7:13 or ERCHOMENON (Parousia). Compare the parallel readings at Mark 14:62 and Luke 22:69. See how this was fulfilled in Acts 7:54-57 and note who was present then (John 6:62; Acts 1:9-11).

[14] He blasphemed: The priest realizes the answer of Jesus is, “Yes.”

[15] Prophesy: Note that the word PROPHETEUSON may be used in a broader since of speaking rather than just predicting something. Mark 14:65 adds, “… to spit on him and to cover his whole face and hit him with their fists.” Luke 22:65 adds, “And they went on saying many other things in blasphemy against him.”
