Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Mark 10:6


10:6 From the beginning of the creation - Therefore Moses in the first of Genesis gives us an account of things from the beginning of the creation. Does it not clearly follow, that there was no creation previous to that which Moses describes? God made them male and female - Therefore Adam did not at first contain both sexes in himself: but God made Adam, when first created, male only; and Eve female only. And this man and woman he joined together, in a state of innocence, as husband and wife.


Discussion for Mark 10:6

  • Bullock for verse 6
    Jesus use the word "But " in Mark 10 6 in Matthew 19 4 And he answered and said unto them, Haave ye not read, that he wich made them at the beginning made them male and female, and that is the word of The Lord.Amen.
  • Since the discussion centers around marriage, I think it's fair to say who God intended to be married - Male & Female. He did not create 3 males, 3 females and allow them to pair up as they desired. He created one to be with the other. No confusion!
