Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 12:34

_ _ And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly — rather, “intelligently,” or “sensibly”; not only in a good spirit, but with a promising measure of insight into spiritual things.

_ _ he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God — for he had but to follow out a little further what he seemed sincerely to own, to find his way into the kingdom. He needed only the experience of another eminent scribe who at a later period said, “We know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin”: who exclaimed, “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me?” but who added, “I thank God through Jesus Christ!” (Romans 7:14, Romans 7:24, Romans 7:25). Perhaps among the “great company of the priests” and other Jewish ecclesiastics who “were obedient to the faith,” almost immediately after the day of Pentecost (Acts 6:7), this upright lawyer was one. But for all his nearness to the Kingdom of God, it may be he never entered it.

_ _ And no man after that durst ask any question — all feeling that they were no match for Him, and that it was vain to enter the lists with Him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 12:28-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 12:34

Jesus said to him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God — Reader, art not thou? then go on: be a real Christian: else it had been better for thee to have been afar off.
