Mark 14:52


but he ran off naked, 1  leaving his linen cloth behind.


Ge 39:12; Job 2:4; Mr 13:14-16

NET © Notes

sn The statement he ran off naked is probably a reference to Mark himself, traditionally assumed to be the author of this Gospel. Why he was wearing only an outer garment and not the customary tunic as well is not mentioned. W. L. Lane, Mark (NICNT), 527-28, says that Mark probably mentioned this episode so as to make it clear that “all fled, leaving Jesus alone in the custody of the police.”
