Mark 10:26 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 10:26

And they were astonished out of measure
They were still more amazed, their surprise increased exceedingly upon our Lord's using the above comparison; which, in their apprehension, showed, that it was utterly impossible for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God; and they expressed their astonishment,

saying, among themselves, who then can be saved?
in the Messiah's kingdom, if rich men are not? (See Gill on Matthew 19:25). The Persic version renders it, "how can this man be saved?" as if the words had a particular respect to the young man, that had great possessions, and was gone away sorrowful.

Mark 10:26 In-Context

24 But the disciples were astonished at His words. Again Jesus said to them, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!
25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God."
26 So they were even more astonished, saying to one another, "Then who can be saved?"
27 Looking at them, Jesus said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God, because all things are possible with God."
28 Peter began to tell Him, "Look, we have left everything and followed You."
