Mark 14:52

52 he slipped out of his shirt and ran away naked.

Mark 14:52 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 14:52

And he left the linen cloth
"In their hands", so the Persic version renders it; just as Joseph left his garment in the hands of his mistress, ( Genesis 39:12 ) ;

and fled from them naked;
to the house from whence he came. The Syriac, Arabic, Persic, and Ethiopic versions, leave out the words "from them".

Mark 14:52 In-Context

50 Then all his disciples deserted him and ran away.
51 One young man following behind was clothed only in a long linen shirt. When the mob tried to grab him,
52 he slipped out of his shirt and ran away naked.
53 They took Jesus to the high priest’s home where the leading priests, the elders, and the teachers of religious law had gathered.
54 Meanwhile, Peter followed him at a distance and went right into the high priest’s courtyard. There he sat with the guards, warming himself by the fire.
