Mark 8:11-12

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. 8:12 Sighing deeply in his spirit he said, “Why does this generation look for a sign? I tell you the truth, 4  no sign will be given to this generation.”

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.

4 tn Grk “Truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.”
