Capítulo 9

1 Y les decía: «Les aseguro que algunos de los que están aquí presentes no morirán antes de haber visto que el Reino de Dios ha llegado con poder».

2 Seis días después, Jesús tomó a Pedro, Santiago y Juan, y los llevo a ellos solos a un monte elevado. Allí se transfiguró en presencia de ellos.

3 Sus vestiduras se volvieron resplandecientes, tan blancas como nadie en el mundo podría blanquearlas.

4 Y se les aparecieron Elías y Moisés, conversando con Jesús.

5 Pedro dijo a Jesús: «Maestro, ¡qué bien estamos aquí! Hagamos tres carpas, una para ti, otra para Moisés y otra para Elías».

6 Pedro no sabía qué decir, porque estaban llenos de temor.

7 Entonces una nube los cubrió con su sombra, y salió de ella una voz: «Este es mi Hijo muy querido, escúchenlo».

8 De pronto miraron a su alrededor y no vieron a nadie, sino a Jesús solo con ellos.

9 Mientras bajaban del monte, Jesús les prohibió contar lo que habían visto, hasta que el Hijo del hombre resucitara de entre los muertos.

10 Ellos cumplieron esta orden, pero se preguntaban qué significará «resucitar de entre los muertos».

11 Y le hicieron esta pregunta: «¡Por qué dicen los escribas que antes debe venir Elías?».

12 Jesús les respondió: «Sí, Elías debe venir antes para restablecer el orden en todo. Pero, ¿no dice la Escritura que el Hijo del hombre debe sufrir mucho y ser despreciado?

13 Les aseguro que Elías ya ha venido e hicieron con él lo que quisieron, como estaba escrito».

14 Cuando volvieron a donde estaban los otros discípulos, los encontraron en medio de una gran multitud, discutiendo con algunos escribas.

15 En cuanto la multitud distinguió a Jesús, quedó asombrada y corrieron a saludarlo.

16 El les preguntó: «¿Sobre qué estaban discutiendo?».

17 Uno de ellos le dijo: «Maestro, te he traído a mi hijo, que está poseído de un espíritu mudo.

18 Cuando se apodera de él, lo tira al suelo y le hace echar espuma por la boca; entonces le crujen sus dientes y se queda rígido. Le pedí a tus discípulos que lo expulsaran pero no pudieron».

19 «Generación incrédula, respondió Jesús, ¿hasta cuando estaré con ustedes? ¿Hasta cuando tendré que soportarlos? Tráiganmelo».

20 Y ellos se lo trajeron. En cuanto vio a Jesús, el espíritu sacudió violentamente al niño, que cayó al suelo y se revolcaba, echando espuma por la boca.

21Jesús le preguntó al padre: «¿Cuánto tiempo hace que está así?». «Desde la infancia, le respondió,

22 y a menudo lo hace caer en el fuego o en el agua para matarlo. Si puedes hacer algo, ten piedad de nosotros y ayúdanos».

23 «¡Si puedes…!», respondió Jesús. «Todo es posible para el que cree».

24 Inmediatamente el padre del niño exclamó: «Creo, ayúdame porque tengo poca fe».

25 Al ver que llegaba más gente, Jesús increpó al espíritu impuro, diciéndole: «Espíritu mudo y sordo, yo te lo ordeno, sal de él y no vuelvas más».

26 El demonio gritó, sacudió violentamente al niño y salió de él, dejándolo como muerto, tanto que muchos decían: «Está muerto».

27 Pero Jesús, tomándolo de la mano, lo levantó, y el niño se puso de pie.

28 Cuando entró a la casa y quedaron solos, los discípulos le preguntaron: «¿Por qué nosotros no pudimos expulsarlo?».

29 El les respondió: «Esta clase de demonios se expulsa sólo con la oración».

30 Al salir de allí atravesaron la Galilea; Jesús no quería que nadie lo supiera,

31 porque enseñaba y les decía: «El Hijo del hombre va a ser entregado en manos de los hombres; lo matarán y tres días después de su muerte, resucitará».

32 Pero los discípulos no comprendían esto y temían hacerle preguntas.

33 Llegaron a Cafarnaúm y, una vez que estuvieron en la casa, les preguntó: «¿De qué hablaban en el camino?».

34 Ellos callaban, porque habían estado discutiendo sobre quién era el más grande.

35 Entonces, sentándose, llamó a los Doce y les dijo: «El que quiere ser el primero, debe hacerse el último de todos y el servidor de todos».

36 Después, tomando a un niño, lo puso en medio de ellos y, abrazándolo, les dijo:

37 «El que recibe a uno de estos pequeños en mi Nombre, me recibe a mí, y el que me recibe, no es a mí al que recibe, sino a aquel que me ha enviado».

38 Juan le dijo: «Maestro, hemos visto a uno que expulsaba demonios en tu Nombre, y tratamos de impedírselo porque no es de los nuestros».

39 Pero Jesús les dijo: «No se lo impidan, porque nadie puede hacer un milagro en mi Nombre y luego hablar mal de mí.

40 Y el que no está contra nosotros, está con nosotros.

41 Les aseguro que no quedará sin recompensa el que les dé de beber un vaso de agua por el hecho de que ustedes pertenecen a Cristo.

42 Si alguien llegara a escandalizar a uno de estos pequeños que tienen fe, sería preferible para él que le ataran al cuello una piedra de moler y lo arrojaran al mar.

43 Si tu mano es para ti ocasión de pecado, córtala, porque más te vale entrar en la Vida manco, que ir con tus dos manos a la Gehena, al fuego inextinguible.

45 Y si tu pie es para ti ocasión de pecado, córtalo, porque más te vale entrar lisiado en la Vida, que ser arrojado con tus dos pies a la Gehena.

47 Y si tu ojo es para ti ocasión de pecado, arráncalo, porque más te vale entrar con un solo ojo en el Reino de Dios, que ser arrojado con tus dos ojos a la Gehena,

48 donde el gusano no muere y el fuego no se apaga.

49 Porque cada uno será salado por el fuego.

50 La sal es una cosa excelente, pero si se vuelve insípida, ¿con qué la volverán a salar? Que haya sal en ustedes mismos y vivan en paz unos con otros».

Chapter 9

11 He also said to them, «Amen, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see that the kingdom of God has come in power.»

2 After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them,

3and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no fuller on earth could bleach them.

4Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses, and they were conversing with Jesus.

53 Then Peter said to Jesus in reply, «Rabbi, it is good that we are here! Let us make three tents: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.»

He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified.

Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over them; 4 then from the cloud came a voice, «This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.»

Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with them.

5 As they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone, except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead.

10 So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what rising from the dead meant.

11 Then they asked him, «Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?»

12 He told them, «Elijah will indeed come first and restore all things, yet how is it written regarding the Son of Man that he must suffer greatly and be treated with contempt?

13 But I tell you that Elijah has come and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him.»

14 6 When they came to the disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and scribes arguing with them.

15 Immediately on seeing him, the whole crowd was utterly amazed. They ran up to him and greeted him.

16 He asked them, «What are you arguing about with them?»

17 Someone from the crowd answered him, «Teacher, I have brought to you my son possessed by a mute spirit.

18 Wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive it out, but they were unable to do so.»

19 He said to them in reply, «O faithless generation, how long will I be with you? How long will I endure you? Bring him to me.»

20 They brought the boy to him. And when he saw him, the spirit immediately threw the boy into convulsions. As he fell to the ground, he began to roll around and foam at the mouth.

21 Then he questioned his father, «How long has this been happening to him?» He replied, «Since childhood.

22 It has often thrown him into fire and into water to kill him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.»

24 Then the boy’s father cried out, «I do believe, help my unbelief!»

25 Jesus, on seeing a crowd rapidly gathering, rebuked the unclean spirit and said to it, «Mute and deaf spirit, I command you: come out of him and never enter him again!»

26 Shouting and throwing the boy into convulsions, it came out. He became like a corpse, which caused many to say, «He is dead!»

27 But Jesus took him by the hand, raised him, and he stood up.

28 When he entered the house, his disciples asked him in private, «Why could we not drive it out?»

29 7 He said to them, «This kind can only come out through prayer.»

30 They left from there and began a journey through Galilee, but he did not wish anyone to know about it.

31 He was teaching his disciples and telling them, «The Son of Man is to be handed over to men and they will kill him, and three days after his death he will rise.»

32 But they did not understand the saying, and they were afraid to question him.

33 8 They came to Capernaum and, once inside the house, he began to ask them, «What were you arguing about on the way?»

34 But they remained silent. They had been discussing among themselves on the way who was the greatest.

35 Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, «If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.»

36 Taking a child he placed it in their midst, and putting his arms around it he said to them,

37 «Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but the one who sent me.»

38 9 John said to him, «Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.»

39 Jesus replied, «Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me.

40 For whoever is not against us is for us.

41 Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.

42 «Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe (in me) to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were put around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.

43 If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed than with two hands to go into Gehenna, 10 into the unquenchable fire.

4411

45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life crippled than with two feet to be thrown into Gehenna.

47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. Better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into Gehenna,

48 where ‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’

49 12 «Everyone will be salted with fire.

50 Salt is good, but if salt becomes insipid, with what will you restore its flavor? Keep salt in yourselves and you will have peace with one another.»

1 [1] There are some standing . . . come in power: understood by some to refer to the establishment by God’s power of his kingdom on earth in and through the church; more likely, as understood by others, a reference to the imminent parousia.

2 [2-8] Mark and  Matthew 17:1 place the transfiguration of Jesus six days after the first prediction of his passion and death and his instruction to the disciples on the doctrine of the cross;  Luke 9:28 has «about eight days.» Thus the transfiguration counterbalances the prediction of the passion by affording certain of the disciples insight into the divine glory that Jesus possessed. His glory will overcome his death and that of his disciples; cf  2 Cor 3:18;  2 Peter 1:16-19. The heavenly voice ( Mark 9:7) prepares the disciples to understand that in the divine plan Jesus must die ignominiously before his messianic glory is made manifest; cf  Luke 24:25-27. See further the note on  Matthew 17:1-8.

3 [5] Moses and Elijah represent respectively law and prophecy in the Old Testament and are linked to Matthew. Sinai; cf  Exodus 19:16- 20:17;  1 Kings 19:2,  8-14. They now appear with Jesus as witnesses to the fulfillment of the law and the prophets taking place in the person of Jesus as he appears in glory.

4 [7] A cloud came, casting a shadow over them: even the disciples enter into the mystery of his glorification. In the Old Testament the cloud covered the meeting tent, indicating the Lord’s presence in the midst of his people ( Exodus 40:34-35) and came to rest upon the temple in Jerusalem at the time of its dedication ( 1 Kings 8:10).

5 [9-13] At the transfiguration of Jesus his disciples had seen Elijah. They were perplexed because, according to the rabbinical interpretation of  Malachi 3:23-24, Elijah was to come first. Jesus’ response shows that Elijah has come, in the person of John the Baptist, to prepare for the day of the Lord. Jesus must suffer greatly and be treated with contempt ( Mark 9:12) like the Baptist ( Mark 9:13); cf  Mark 6:17-29.

6 [14-29] The disciples’ failure to effect a cure seems to reflect unfavorably on Jesus ( Mark 9:14-18,  22). In response Jesus exposes their lack of trust in God ( Mark 4:19) and scores their lack of prayer ( Mark 4:29), i.e., of conscious reliance on God’s power when acting in Jesus’ name. For Matthew, see the note on  Matthew 17:14-20.  Luke 9:37-43 centers attention on Jesus’ sovereign power.

7 [29] This kind can only come out through prayer: a variant reading adds «and through fasting.»

8 [33-37] Mark probably intends this incident and the sayings that follow as commentary on the disciples’ lack of understanding ( Mark 9:32). Their role in Jesus’ work is one of service, especially to the poor and lowly. Children were the symbol Jesus used for the anawim, the poor in spirit, the lowly in the Christian community.

9 [38-41] Jesus warns against jealousy and intolerance toward others, such as exorcists who do not follow us. The saying in  Mark 9:40 is a broad principle of the divine tolerance. Even the smallest courtesies shown to those who teach in Jesus’ name do not go unrewarded.

10 [43,45,47] Gehenna: see the note on  Matthew 5:22.

11 [44,46] These verses, lacking in some important early manuscripts, are here omitted as scribal additions. They simply repeat  Mark 9:48 itself a modified citation of  Isaiah 66:24.

12 [49] Everyone will be salted with fire: so the better manuscripts. Some add «every sacrifice will be salted with salt.» The purifying and preservative use of salt in food ( Lev 2:13) and the refinement effected through fire refer here to comparable effects in the spiritual life of the disciples of Jesus.
