Bible Commentary for Mark 14:57

Wesley's Notes for Mark 14:57


14:55 All the council sought for witness and found none - What an amazing proof of the overruling providence of God, considering both their authority, and the rewards they could offer, that no two consistent witnesses could be procured, to charge him with any gross crime. #Mt 26:59|.

14:56 Their evidences were not sufficient - The Greek words literally rendered are, Were not equal: not equal to the charge of a capital crime: it is the same word in the 59th verse.

14:58 We heard him say - It is observable, that the words which they thus misrepresented, were spoken by Christ at least three years before, #John 2:19|. Their going back so far to find matter for the charge, was a glorious, though silent attestation of the unexceptionable manner wherein he had behaved, through the whole course of his public ministry.
