We can now say that the Gospels of Matthew and Luke were substantially based on Mark's Gospel and that additional material the Gospels of Matthew and Luke have in common have come from the hypothetical 'Q' document. John Dominic Crossan, in The Birth of Christianity, page 110-111, speaks of a massive consensus among scholars in favour of Markan priority. He ...

It seems that most of the commentaries take "at home" to mean Peter's home from Mark 1:29, which seems to have functioned as the base for Jesus' ministry in Capernaum. While both follow this majority opinion, J. Marcus allows that "en oikō̧" could simply mean "in a house" and R. Stein states the possibility that it is Jesus' own home. However, given that the ...

I believe God gave me revelation of this scripture years ago. When we are willing to obey God at any cost, forsaking all if need be; He will multiply back to us in this life and the life to come, blessings spiritual and natural. My understanding of what Holy Spirit revealed to me is this... "Persecutions" is a warning here. Jesus want them to be enlighted ...

In everyday English "Lord" doesn't carry much connotation of divinity even though the KJV often calls God "the ...

Both references imply a vigorous washing. Mark 7:3 has πυγμή (fist) which suggests a vigorous washing hand of fist; the same word is used for 'boxing'. Luke 11:38 uses βαπτίζω, which has a history of referring to not just washing, but serious, vigorous dipping, used for drowning, or drunkenness (like in English we might say 'sodden' for someone who is ...

Just an addition to what has already been explored in Mark's language. Particular words in Mark are changed in Matthew and Luke to make them more acceptable to their readers. In the healing of the paralytic man,Matthew uses "bed" (9:2 & 6), Mark uses "pallet" (2:4), Luke uses "couch" (5:19-24). Also, Mark in describing Peter after his denial of Jesus ...

If one discounts the longer or shorter ending of Mark (For why scholars have rejected these endings see this answer.), there are only two explanations for Mark's apparently unresolved ending at 16:8. It was either an accident of history or a purposeful descision on the part of the author. Mark's gospel could have been unfinished due to the death of the ...

The gospel of mark is the prior since it had geographical errors such as in mark chapter 8there is a place named DULMATHUA which can not be seen in the pale stine map .more so mark's gospel is believed to be written AD64-65 hence other gospels such as matthew and luke are written AD72-80,80-90 so this is another proof in support of the priority of mark. ...
