Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 4:33

_ _ And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it — Had this been said in the corresponding passage of Matthew, we should have concluded that what that Evangelist recorded was but a specimen of other parables spoken on the same occasion. But Matthew (Matthew 13:34) says, “All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables”; and as Mark records only some of the parables which Matthew gives, we are warranted to infer that the “many such parables” alluded to here mean no more than the full complement of them which we find in Matthew.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 4:21-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 4:33

He spake the word as they were able to hear it — Adapting it to the capacity of his hearers; and speaking as plain as he could without offending them. A rule never to be forgotten by those who instruct others.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Mark 4:33

And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, (k) as they were able to hear [it].

with:

Matthew 13:34-35 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: ... That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

as:

John 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
1 Corinthians 3:1-2 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, [even] as unto babes in Christ. ... I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able [to bear it], neither yet now are ye able.
Hebrews 5:11-14 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. ... But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
