People's Bible Notes for Mark 10:12


Mr 10:12 If a woman shall put away her husband. This was allowed by the Greek and Roman law (1Co 7:13), but not by the Jewish. Christ applies his principles to either sex on the same footing.

Discussion for Mark 10:12

  • If a wife puts away her husband, she doesn 't have to remarry to commit adultery, since her action forces her husband into adultery, which they both become guilty of.
  • Bob Trent for verse 12
    No "exception clause" here.
    The only "exception clause" is in Matthew when Jesus was addressing Israelite men. The "exception clause" does not there apply to women, for to have it apply to women would place it in conflict with the absolute prohibition of women remarrying while their husband lived.
