EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Isaiah 53:12. This does not mean that he "was" a transgressor, but simply that in dying he "had a place" with transgressors. Nor does it mean that God regarded him as a sinner; but that at his death, in popular estimation. or by the sentence of the judge, he was "regarded as" a transgressor, and was treated in the same manner as the others who were put to death for their transgressions. Jesus died, the "just" for the "unjust," and in his death, as well as in his life, he was "holy, harmless, undefiled."
See on Joh 19:17-30.See Poole on "Mark 15:21"
when they heard it; the loud voice of Jesus, and the words he uttered:
said, behold he calleth Elias; whom they ignorantly, or wilfully took for Eloi; See Gill on Matthew 27:47.And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Mark 15:35. Ἠλίαν: the name of Elijah might be suggested by either form of the name of God—Eli or Eloi. Who the τινες were that made the poor pun is doubtful, most probably heartless fellow-countrymen who only affected to misunderstand.35. Behold, he calieth Elias] They either only caught the first syllable, or misapprehended words, or, as some think, spoke in wilful mockery, and declared He called not on Eli, God, but on Elias, whose appearance was universally expected. See note above, Mark 9:11.Verse 35. - Notwithstanding the supernatural darkness, there were those who lingered about the cross. Indeed, the darkness would add greatly to the awfulness of the place. It was out of that darkness that the voice of Jesus was heard; and inasmuch as Elias, or Elijah, was believed to hold some relation to the Messiah, it was natural for some of those who stood by to understand the words to mean that our Lord was actually calling for Elias.
