EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)There arose certain.—St. Mark is here less definite than St. Matthew, who, writing for Jews, was apparently anxious to show that the rule which required “two or three witnesses” in support of a criminal charge had barely been complied with.Matthew 26:57-75.
saying—as follows:See Poole on "Mark 14:53" Matthew 26:60, who stood up in court; for witnesses were obliged to stand, whilst they gave in their testimony:
"says R. Bo, in the name of R. Hona, witnesses ought "to stand", whilst they bear witness; as it is said, Deuteronomy 19:17. "Both the men shall stand" (m), &c.''
And bare false witness against him, saying; as follows.And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Mark 14:57. τινες, some, for which Mt. has the more definite δύο, the smallest number necessary to establish a matter.57. And there arose certain] Two at last came forward, whose evidence appeared likely to be more satisfactory.Verses 57, 58. - And there stood up certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands. St. Matthew (Matthew 26:60) says that they were two. What our Lord had really said was this - we read it in St. John (John 2:19) - "Destroy this temple; and in three days I will raise it up." These words the false witnesses perverted; for they assigned to Jesus the work of destruction which he left to the Jews. He did not say," I will destroy;" but "Do ye destroy, and I will rebuild." Nor did he say, "I will build another;" but "I will raise it up," that is, from the dead; for St. John tells us that "he spake of the temple of his body," in which, as in a temple, there dwelt the fullness of the Godhead.. He might have said plainly, "I will rise from the dead;" but he chose to speak as in a parable. According to their witness, however, our Lord's words would appear as little more than an empty boast, certainly not as anything on account of which such a charge as they desired could be brought against him.
