Mark 8:11

Context
The Demand for a Sign

8:11 Then the Pharisees 1  came and began to argue with Jesus, asking for 2  a sign from heaven 3  to test him.

1 sn See the note on Pharisees in 2:16.

2 tn Grk “seeking from him.” The participle ζητοῦντες (zhtountes) shows the means by which the Pharisees argued with Jesus.

3 sn What exactly this sign would have been, given what Jesus was already doing, is not clear. But here is where the fence-sitters reside, refusing to commit to him.
