Mark 13:4 Tell us, when shall these things be? [Ειπον ημιν ποτε ταυτα εσται]
The Revised Version punctuates it as a direct question, but Westcott and Hort as an indirect inquiry. They asked about the when Matthew 24:3 includes “the sign of thy coming and the end of the world,” showing that these tragic events are brought before Jesus by the disciples. See discussion of the interpretation of this discourse on Matthew 24:3. This chapter in Mark is often called “The Little Apocalypse” with the notion that a Jewish apocalypse has been here adapted by Mark and attributed to Jesus. Many of the theories attribute grave error to Jesus or to the Gospels on this subject. The view adopted in the discussion in Matthew is the one suggested here, that Jesus blended in one picture his death, the destruction of Jerusalem within that generation, the second coming and end of the world typified by the destruction of the city. The lines between these topics are not sharply drawn in the report and it is not possible for us to separate the topics clearly. This great discourse is the longest preserved in Mark and may be due to Peter. Mark may have given it in order “to forewarn and forearm” (Bruce) the readers against the coming catastrophe of the destruction of Jerusalem. Both Matthew (Matthew 24) and Luke (Luke 21:5-36) follow the general line of Mark 13 though Matthew 24:43-25:46 presents new material (parables). [source]
Luke 20:2 Tell us [ειπον ημιν]
Luke adds these words to what Mark and Matthew have. Second aorist active imperative for the old form ειπε — eipe and with ending -ον — on of the first aorist active. Westcott and Hort punctuate the rest of the sentence as an indirect question after ειπον — eipon but the Revised Version puts a semicolon after “us” and retains the direct question. The Greek manuscripts have no punctuation. [source]
John 3:12 If I told [ει ειπον]
Condition of the first class, assumed to be true. Earthly things Things upon the earth like τα επι της γης — ta epi tēs gēs (Colossians 3:2), not things of an earthly nature or worldly or sinful. The work of the kingdom of God including the new birth which Nicodemus did not understand belongs to τα επιγεια — ta epigeia If I tell you heavenly things Condition of the third class, undetermined. What will Nicodemus do in that case? By τα επουρανια — ta epourania Jesus means the things that take place in heaven like the deep secrets of the purpose of God in the matter of redemption such as the necessity of the lifting up of Christ as shown in John 3:14. Both Godet and Westcott note that the two types of teaching here pointed out by Jesus (the earthly, the heavenly) correspond in general to the difference between the Synoptics (the earthly) and the Fourth Gospel (the heavenly), a difference noted here in the Fourth Gospel as shown by Jesus himself. Hence the one should not be pitted against the other. There are specimens of the heavenly in the Synoptics as in Matthew 11:25.; Luke 10:18. [source]
John 9:27 I told you even now [ειπον υμιν ηδη]
In John 9:15, John 9:17, John 9:25. Would ye also become his disciples? Negative answer formally expected, but the keenest irony in this gibe. Clearly the healed man knew from the use of “also” (και — kai) that Jesus had some “disciples” (ματηται — mathētai predicate nominative with the infinitive γενεσται — genesthai) and that the Pharisees knew that fact. “Do ye also (like the Galilean mob) wish, etc.” See John 7:45-52. It cut to the bone. [source]
John 10:25 I told you, and you believe not [ειπον υμιν και ου πιστευετε]
It was useless to say more. In 7:14-10:18 Jesus had shown that he was the Son of the Father as he had previously claimed (5:17-47), but it was all to no purpose save to increase their rage towards him. These bear witness of me His works confirm his words as he had shown before (John 5:36). They believe neither his words nor his works. [source]
John 11:40 Said I not unto thee? [Ουκ ειπον σοι]
Jesus pointedly reminds Martha of his promise to raise Lazarus (John 11:25.). That if thou believedst Indirect discourse with εαν — ean and the first aorist active subjunctive (condition of third class) retained after the secondary tense ειπον — eipon He had not said this very phrase, εαν πιστευσηις — ean pisteusēis to Martha, but he did say to her: Πιστευεις τουτο — Pisteueis touto (Believest thou this?). He meant to test Martha as to her faith already hinted at (John 11:22) on this very point. Jesus had also spoken of increase of faith on the part of the disciples (John 11:15). Thou shouldest see the glory of God Future middle indicative of the old defective verb οραω — horaō retained in the conclusion of this condition in indirect discourse. Jesus means the glory of God as shown in the resurrection of Lazarus as he had already said to the disciples (John 11:4) and as he meant Martha to understand (John 11:25) and may in fact have said to her (the report of the conversation is clearly abridged). Hence Bernard‘s difficulty in seeing how Martha could understand the words of Jesus about the resurrection of Lazarus here and now seems fanciful and far-fetched. [source]
John 16:15 Therefore said I [δια τουτο ειπον]
Jesus explains how and why the Holy Spirit can and will reveal to the disciples what they need to know further concerning him. They had failed so far to understand Christ‘s words about his death and resurrection. The Holy Spirit as Guide and Teacher will teach them what they can only receive and understand after the resurrection and ascension of Jesus. [source]
Acts 28:26 Say [ειπον]
Second aorist active imperative instead of the old form ειπε — eipe The quotation is from Isaiah 6:9, Isaiah 6:10. This very passage is quoted by Jesus (Matthew 13:14, Matthew 13:15; Mark 4:12; Luke 8:10) in explanation of his use of parables and in John 12:40 the very point made by Paul here, “the disbelief of the Jews in Jesus” (Page). See note on Matthew 13:14 for discussion of the language used. Here the first time (“go to this people and say”) does not occur in Matthew. It is a solemn dirge of the doom of the Jews for their rejection of the Messiah foreseen so long ago by Isaiah. [source]
Galatians 2:14 I said unto Cephas before them all [ειπον τωι Κηπαι εμπροστεν παντων]
Being a Jew (Ιουδαιος υπαρχων — Ioudaios huparchōn though being a Jew). Condition of first class, assumed as true. It was not a private quarrel, but a matter of public policy. One is a bit curious to know what those who consider Peter the first pope will do with this open rebuke by Paul, who was in no sense afraid of Peter or of all the rest. As do the Gentiles Late adverb, here only in N.T. Like Gentiles. As do the Jews (Ιουδαικως — Ioudaikōs). Only here in N.T., but in Josephus. To live as do the Jews Late verb, only here in the N.T. From Ιουδαιος — Ioudaios Jew. Really Paul charges Peter with trying to compel (conative present, αναγκαζεις — anagkazeis) the Gentiles to live all like Jews, to Judaize the Gentile Christians, the very point at issue in the Jerusalem Conference when Peter so loyally supported Paul. It was a bold thrust that allowed no reply. But Paul won Peter back and Barnabas also. If II Peter is genuine, as is still possible, he shows it in 2 Peter 3:15. Paul and Barnabas remained friends (Acts 15:39.; 1 Corinthians 9:6), though they soon separated over John Mark. [source]
