Mark 14:62-64

Context
14:62 “I am,” said Jesus, “and you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand 1  of the Power 2  and coming with the clouds of heaven.” 3  14:63 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, “Why do we still need witnesses? 14:64 You have heard the blasphemy! What is your verdict?” 4  They all condemned him as deserving death.

1 sn An allusion to Ps 110:1. This is a claim that Jesus shares authority with God in heaven. Those present may have thought they were his judges, but, in fact, the reverse was true.

2 sn The expression the right hand of the Power is a circumlocution for referring to God. Such indirect references to God were common in 1st century Judaism out of reverence for the divine name.

3 sn An allusion to Dan 7:13.

4 tn Grk “What do you think?”
