Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

Mark 2:3

And they come (kai erxontai).
Fine illustration of Mark's vivid dramatic historical present preserved by Luke Luke 5:18, but not by Matthew 9:2 (imperfect).

Borne by four (airomenon upo tessarwn).
Another picturesque Markan detail not in the others.
