Bible Commentary for Mark 5:43

Wesley's Notes for Mark 5:43


5:43 He charged them that no man should know it - That he might avoid every appearance of vain glory, might prevent too great a concourse of people, and might not farther enrage the scribes and Pharisees against him; the time for his death, and for the full manifestation of his glory, being not yet come. He commanded something should be given her to eat - So that when either natural or spiritual life is restored, even by immediate miracle, all proper means are to be used in order to preserve it.


People's Bible Notes for Mark 5:43


Mr 5:43 That no man should know it. That is, that it should not be published abroad. It was often needful for Jesus to restrain the fame of his miracles for various reasons, one of which was the wrath they excited in the Jewish authorities. It was needful for him to delay exciting them to the point of putting him to death till his time had come. There are three cases, besides his own resurrection, of Christ raising the dead. (1) This case is immediately after death; (2) another, that of the son of the widow of Nain, at least 24 hours after death (Lu 7:11-15); (3) the third, that of Lazarus, several days after death, when corruption would naturally have begun (Joh 11:41-46): in one case privately; in the second, publicly; in the third, before bitter enemies.
