Mark 1:34

??? ??????????? ??????? ????? ??????? ????????? ?????? ??? ???????? ????? ???????? ??? ??? ????? ?????? ?? ???????? ??? ??????? ?????

"And he healed many that were sick with divers diseases, and cast out many demons; and he suffered not the demons to speak, because they knew him. (ASV)"


And Metzger commentary: "1.34 ????? {A} It is clear that Mark terminated the sentence with ????? and that copyists made various additions, derived probably from the parallel in Lk 4.41 (??? ??????? ??? ??????? ????? ?????). If any one of the longer readings had been original in Mark, there is no reason why it should have been altered or eliminated entirely."

JW: Once again Thank God for Bet Ehranncyman who alerts me to this one and forces me to Edit my own Editing thread (I Am as bad as Eusebius!). The phrase added by the "Orthodox" here to some manuscripts of "Mark" is:

"??????? ????? ?????"

following the Lukan parallel. Now instead of "they knew him" it's "they knew he was the Christ".

This also involves the "Separationist" question. Separationists saw "Mark's" Jesus as two distinct parts, the Spiritual part, which was received from God at Baptism, and the Human part. "Mark" as originally written at 1:34 Emphasizes that the Evil Spirits recognized the Good Spirit which supports the Separationist viewpoint. By adding "they knew he was the Christ" this takes the emphasis away from the Spirit's issue and makes it a Christological issue.
