Don’t you understand? (Mk 8:21-8:21)

“Jesus said

To them.

‘Do you not yet understand?’”


καὶ ἔλεγεν αὐτοῖς Οὔπω συνίετε;


Once again, there was a reprimand from Jesus about their inability to remember and understand things, much like Matthew, chapter 16:11.  Mark indicated that Jesus said to them (καὶ ἔλεγεν αὐτοῖς).  Did they not yet understand what he was talking about (Οὔπω συνίετε)?  Mark continued to emphasize this lack of understanding among the disciples of Jesus.
