The man with a withered hand (Mk 3:1-3:1)


Jesus entered

The synagogue.

A man was there

Who had a withered hand.”


Καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πάλιν εἰς συναγωγήν, καὶ ἦν ἐκεῖ ἄνθρωπος ἐξηραμμένην ἔχων τὴν χεῖρα·


Matthew, chapter 12:9-10, and Luke, chapter 6:6, are similar to this incident in Mark, so that he might be the source of this discussion about the Sabbath that continued in the local synagogue about the man with the withered hand.  Mark said that Jesus entered this synagogue (Καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πάλιν εἰς συναγωγήν).  There was a man in this synagogue with a withered or dried out hand (καὶ ἦν ἐκεῖ ἄνθρωπος ἐξηραμμένην ἔχων τὴν χεῖρα).  What was Jesus going to do?
