Were greatly astonished.
To one another.
‘Then who can be saved?’”
οἱ δὲ περισσῶς ἐξεπλήσσοντο λέγοντες πρὸς ἑαυτούς Καὶ τίς δύναται σωθῆναι;
This reaction of the disciples can be found in Matthew, chapter 19:25, and Luke, chapter 18:26, almost word for word. Mark said that the disciples of Jesus were very shocked, astonished, and amazed (οἱ δὲ περισσῶς ἐξεπλήσσοντο). They said to themselves, one to another (λέγοντες πρὸς ἑαυτούς) who then could possibly be saved (Καὶ τίς δύναται σωθῆναι)? Could anyone be saved? Everyone had some kind of wealth, so that this was a very difficult saying for them.
