Mark 12:10

Context
12:10 Have you not read this scripture:

The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. 1 

Mark 12:26

Context
12:26 Now as for the dead being raised, 2  have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the bush, 3  how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the 4  God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? 5 

1 tn Or “capstone,” “keystone.” Although these meanings are lexically possible, the imagery in Eph 2:20-22 and 1 Cor 3:11 indicates that the term κεφαλὴ γωνίας (kefalh gwnia") refers to a cornerstone, not a capstone.

sn The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. The use of Ps 118:22-23 and the “stone imagery” as a reference to Christ and his suffering and exaltation is common in the NT (see also Matt 21:42; Luke 20:17; Acts 4:11; 1 Pet 2:6-8; cf. also Eph 2:20). The irony in the use of Ps 118:22-23 in Mark 12:10-11 is that in the OT, Israel was the one rejected (or perhaps her king) by the Gentiles, but in the NT it is Jesus who is rejected by Israel.

2 tn Grk “Now as for the dead that they are raised.”

3 sn See Exod 3:6. Jesus used a common form of rabbinic citation here to refer to the passage in question.

4 tn Grk “and the,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

5 sn A quotation from Exod 3:6.
