Bible Commentary for Mark 12:37

Wesley's Notes for Mark 12:37


12:35 #Mt 22:41|; Lu 20:41.

12:36 #Psa 110:1|.

12:38 Beware of the scribes - There was an absolute necessity for these repeated cautions. For, considering their inveterate prejudices against Christ, it could never be supposed the common people would receive the Gospel till these incorrigible blasphemers of it were brought to just disgrace. Yet he delayed speaking in this manner till a little before his passion, as knowing what effect it would quickly produce. Nor is this any precedent for us: we are not invested with the same authority. #Mt 23:5|; Lu 20:46.


People's Bible Notes for Mark 12:37


Mr 12:37 The common people heard him gladly. Mark adds to Matthew's account (Mt 22:41-46). Not the Pharisees, scribes, Sadducees or rulers, but the common people, of whom the Pharisees were wont to say, "This people who know not the law and are cursed" (Joh 7:49). We have many hints of the favor with which Christ was regarded by the people.
