Mark 14:51

A certain young man (neanisko ti). This incident alone in Mark. It is usually supposed that Mark himself, son of Mary ( Acts 12:12 ) in whose house they probably had observed the passover meal, had followed Jesus and the apostles to the Garden. It is a lifelike touch quite in keeping with such a situation. Here after the arrest he was following with Jesus (sunhkolouqei autwi, imperfect tense). Note the vivid dramatic present kratousin (they seize him).
