Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 14:5

_ _ For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence — between nine and ten pounds sterling.

_ _ and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her — “This he said,” remarks John (John 12:6), and the remark is of exceeding importance, “not that he cared for the poor but because he was a thief, and had the bag” — the scrip or treasure chest — “and bare what was put therein” — not “bare it off” by theft, as some understand it. It is true that he did this; but the expression means simply that he had charge of it and its contents, or was treasurer to Jesus and the Twelve. What a remarkable arrangement was this, by which an avaricious and dishonest person was not only taken into the number of the Twelve, but entrusted with the custody of their little property! The purposes which this served are obvious enough; but it is further noticeable, that the remotest hint was never given to the Eleven of his true character, nor did the disciples most favored with the intimacy of Jesus ever suspect him, till a few minutes before he voluntarily separated himself from their company — for ever!
