- Affected Teaching
- At the close of each day, the gates of the city would be closed and this
would be for safety purposes but Jesus and His disciples would not stay in
the city so they would leave and go out of the city. In this week’s verse,
the Lord Jesus had just overturned the tables of the moneychangers in the
Temple and at the end of the day, the Scripture states that “He” went out of
the city. Many times He went to the Mount of Olives and some times He stayed
in Bethany. At this time the focus was specifically on Jesus and not the
disciples. It was Jesus who overturned the tables of the money changers, the
disciples would not have been that bold to do something like that.
Therefore, the entire set of passages is focused specifically on Jesus. The
word in the Greek for “he went” in the King James is in the 3rd
person singular but in the Hort and Westcott Text it was changed to 3rd
person plural. In the Greek language, person and number agree with the
subject of the sentence. The focus of the sentence is the Lord Jesus Christ
therefore it would follow that the statement about him leaving the city
would be singular since it was still focusing on Christ alone. To include
the disciples here, would give the impression that they too had something to
do with overturning the tables in the Temple and that is not a true
impression. If anything, the disciples being Jews, would have feared the
action the Lord took at that time concerning the desecration of the temple.
Once again in the modern versions, we see the downgrading of the action of
the Lord Jesus Christ and credit being given to those who did nothing. The
King James has it right when it keeps the entire focus on the Lord Jesus
