Mar 9:11. Ὅτι λέγουσιν, they say) An interrogation by implication. [τρῶτον, first) before that the great and terrible day of the Lord shall come, Mal 4:5. The disciples appear to have supposed, that it was to be on that day that the resurrection, even as of all the dead of every class, so also of Christ, since even He must die, would take place; and that it is for that reason the exceedingly long silence is imposed on them.-V. g.]
 Ὅτι, for τί ὅτι, is often found in LXX. See Mar 2:16.-ED. and TRANSL.
