G.A. Chadwick
1840 - 1923

      George Alexander Chadwick is best known for his Bible expository.

      His commentary on the Gospel of Mark is scholarly, insightful and valuable. Today's commentaries, many of them, are scholarly, but lack the warmth and 'aliveness' of this work, first published in 1896.

CommentaryGospel of Mark, 1 - THE BEGINNING OF THE GOSPEL (MARK 1:1-6)
      "The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Even as it is written in Isaiah the prophet, Behold, I send My messenger before Thy face, who shall prepare Thy way; The voice of one crying in the wilderness, make ye ready the way of the Lord, Make His paths straight; John came, who baptized in the wilderness and preached the baptism o
Gospel of Mark, 2 - AT THE JORDAN (MARK 1:7-11)
      "And he preached, saying, There cometh after me He that is mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. I baptized you with water; but He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan. And straightwa
Gospel of Mark, 3 - AT THE JORDAN cont. (MARK 1:7-11)
      Now it is to be observed that we never read of Jesus being caught up into heaven for a space, like St. Paul or St. John. What we read is, that while on earth the Son of man is in Heaven (John 3:13), [1] for heaven is the manifestation of God, whose truest glory was revealed in the grace and truth of Jesus. Along with this revelation, the Holy Sp
Gospel of Mark, 4 - THE TEMPTATION (MARK 1:12,13)
      "And straightway the Spirit driveth Him forth into the wilderness. And He was in the wilderness forty days tempted of Satan; and He was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto Him." MARK 1:12, 13 (R.V.) ST. Mark has not recorded the details of our Lord's temptations, and lays more stress upon the duration of the struggle, than the n
      "Now after that John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee preaching the gospel of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe in the gospel. And passing along by the sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea; for they were fishers. And Jesus said
Gospel of Mark, 6 - TEACHING WITH AUTHORITY (MARK 1:21,22)
      "And they go into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day He entered into the synagogue and taught. And they were astonished at His teaching: for He taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes." MARK 1:21, 22 (R.V.) THE worship of the synagogues, not having been instituted by Moses, but gradually developed by the public need, w
Gospel of Mark, 7 - MIRACLES (MARK 1:23)
      "And straightway there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit." MARK 1:23 (R.V.) WE have just read that Christ's teaching astonished the hearers. He was about to astonish them yet more, for we have now reached the first miracle which St. Mark records. With what sentiments should such a narrative be approached? The evangelist connect
Gospel of Mark, 8 - THE DEMONIAC (MARK 1:23-28)
      "And straightway there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, saying, What have we to do with Thee, Thou Jesus of Nazareth? art Thou come to destroy us? I know Thee Who Thou art, the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And the unclean spirit, tearing him and crying wit
Gospel of Mark, 9 - A GROUP OF MIRACLES (MARK 1:29-34)
      "And straightway, when they were come out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. Now Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever; and straightway they tell Him of her: and He came and took her by the hand, and raised her up; and the fever left her, and she ministered unto them. And at even, when the sun d
Gospel of Mark, 10 - JESUS IN SOLITUDE (MARK 1:35-39)
      "And in the morning, a great while before day, He rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed. And Simon and they that were with him followed after Him; and they found Him, and say unto Him, All are seeking Thee. And He saith unto them, Let us go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also; for to this e
Gospel of Mark, 11 - THE LEPER (MARK 1:40-45)
      "And there cometh to Him a leper, beseeching Him, and kneeling down to Him, and saying unto Him, If Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean. And being moved with compassion, He stretched forth His hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou made clean. And straightway the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean. And He strictly
Gospel of Mark, 12 - THE SICK OF THE PALSY (MARK 2:1-12)
      "And when He entered again into Capernaum after some days, it was noised that He was in the house." MARK 2:1 (R.V.) [And when He had come back to Capernaum several day s afterward, it was heard that He was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room, even near the door; and He was speaking the word to them. And they c
Gospel of Mark, 13 - THE SON OF MAN (MARK 2:10)
      "The Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins." MARK 2:10 (R.V.) WHEN asserting His power to forgive sins, Jesus, for the first time in our Gospel, called Himself the Son of man. It is a remarkable phrase. The profound reverence which He from the first inspired, restrained all other lips from using it, save only when the first martyr fe
Gospel of Mark, 14 - THE CALL AND FEAST OF LEVI (MARK 2:13-17)
      "And He went forth again by the seaside; and all the multitude resorted unto Him, and He taught them. And as He passed by, He saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the place of toll, and He saith unto him, Follow Me. And he arose and followed Him. And it came to pass, that He was sitting at meat in his house, and many publicans and sinners sat do
      "And John's disciples and the Pharisees were fasting: and they come and say unto Him, Why do John's disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but Thy disciples fast not?" MARK 2:18 (R.V.) THE Pharisees had just complained to the disciples that Jesus ate and drank in questionable company. Now they join with the followers of the ascetic B
Gospel of Mark, 16 - THE SABBATH (MARK 2:23-28)
      "And it came to pass, that He was going on the sabbath day through the cornfields; and His disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. And the Pharisees said unto Him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? And He said unto them, Did ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungered, he, and
Gospel of Mark, 17 - THE WITHERED HAND (MARK 3:1-6)
      "And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had his hand withered. And they watched Him, whether He would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse Him. And He saith unto the man that had his hand withered, Stand forth. And He saith unto them, Is it lawful on the sabbath day to do good or to do harm? to save
Gospel of Mark, 18 - THE CHOICE OF THE TWELVE (MARK 3:7-19)
      "And Jesus with His disciples withdrew to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed: and from Judea, and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and beyond Jordan, and about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, hearing what great things He did, came unto Him. And He spake to His disciples, that a little boat should wait on Him because of the crow
Gospel of Mark, 19 - CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TWELVE (MARK 3:14-19)
      "And He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him, and that He might send them forth to preach, and to have authority to cast out devils: and Simon He surnamed Peter; and James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and them He surnamed Boanerges, which is, Sons of thunder; and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and T
Gospel of Mark, 20 - THE APOSTLE JUDAS (MARK 3:19)
      "And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed Him." MARK 3:19 (R.V.) THE evidential value of what has been written about the apostles will, to some minds, seem to be overborne by the difficulties which start up at the name of Judas. And yet the fact that Jesus chose him - that awful fact which has offended many - is in harmony with all that we see ar
