The argument with the Scribes (Mk 9:14-9:14)

“When he came

To the disciples,

He saw a great crowd

Around them.

Some Scribes

Were arguing

With them.”

 

Καὶ ἐλθόντες πρὸς τοὺς μαθητὰς εἶδον ὄχλον πολὺν περὶ αὐτοὺς καὶ γραμματεῖς συνζητοῦντας πρὸς αὐτούς.

 

This is another unique verse of Mark.  He said Jesus came to his disciples (Καὶ ἐλθόντες πρὸς τοὺς μαθητὰς).  He saw a great crowd around them (εἶδον ὄχλον πολὺν περὶ αὐτοὺς).  Some Scribes were arguing, disputing, or discussing with them (καὶ γραμματεῖς συνζητοῦντας πρὸς αὐτούς).  There was no indication what they were discussing or arguing about.
