Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMark 14:51
- A certain young man (neaniskov tiv).
- This incident alone in Mark. It is usually supposed that Mark himself, son of Mary (Acts 12:12) in whose house they probably had observed the passover meal, had followed Jesus and the apostles to the Garden. It is a lifelike touch quite in keeping with such a situation. Here after the arrest he was following with Jesus (sunhkoloutei autwi, imperfect tense). Note the vivid dramatic present kratousin (they seize him).
