Mark 13:9

Context
Persecution of Disciples

13:9 “You must watch out for yourselves. You will be handed over 1  to councils 2  and beaten in the synagogues. 3  You will stand before governors and kings 4  because of me, as a witness to them.

Mark 13:12

Context
13:12 Brother will hand over brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rise against 5  parents and have them put to death.

1 tn Grk “They will hand you over.” “They” is an indefinite plural, referring to people in general. The parallel in Matt 10:17 makes this explicit.

2 sn Councils in this context refers to local judicial bodies attached to the Jewish synagogue. This group would be responsible for meting out justice and discipline within the Jewish community.

3 sn See the note on synagogue in 1:21.

4 sn These statements look at persecution both from a Jewish context as the mention of councils and synagogues suggests, and from a Gentile one as the reference to governors and kings suggests. Some fulfillment of Jewish persecution can be seen in Acts.

5 tn Or “will rebel against.”
