Discussion for Mark 14:30

  • I noticed that some translations leave out the words "Today," or "this day" and just say "this very night." Also, some translate it to mean that Jesus is saying "I say to you this day, that in this very night..."

    I am asknig this because some use this verse to try to prove that the night is part of the Biblical day and that the 24 hour "day" begins in the evening. I do not believe that is true.
