The First Commentary on Mark: An Annotated Translation

By Michael Cahill | Go to book overview

CHAPTER 11

And when they drew near to Jerusalem, etc., as far as Hosanna in the highest ( Mark 11:1-10).

He sent two of his disciples (cf. Mark 11:1).

The disciples of Christ are called in pairs and are sent in pairs, because love does not exist when there is a lone person. As it is said, Woe to the one who is alone, etc.1 Two people lead the Hebrews out of Egypt;2 two carry out the bunch of grapes from the Holy Land3: that leaders may combine knowledge and effort. And they make known two commandments from the two tablets;4 and from two springs they are washed and wash;5 and they carry the ark of God on two poles;6 and they will recognize God between two cherubs,7 singing praise in mind and in spirit.8

Cf. 1 Cor 14:15. Greg Hom 17 1139 A. The fact that two disciples are specified in Mark 11:1 is rationalized in terms of Christian love in a manner close to that of Gregory the Great ( Forty Gospel Homilies, p. 135). This leads to a series of biblical examples and lessons, all involving the number two. None of this development is intrinsically connected to the sense of the Gospel text, and none of the allusions have any connection with each other, apart from the fact that they are all taken from the exodus narrative in Exodus-Numbers.
