And in the house the disciples asked him again of this matter. Bible other translations

“again of this matter.” Jesus had a conversation with the Pharisees about marriage and divorce, which is recorded in Matthew (see the commentary on Matthew 19:3 and commentary on Matthew 19:9). What Jesus said, however, was of such interest to the disciples that they asked him “again of this matter.” It seems that the disciples were so steeped in the culture of the day that they had just accepted divorce and remarriage as part of life (as many people have today), and were shocked at the way Jesus defended the sanctity of marriage. The Gospel of Mark leaves out the full conversation between Jesus and the Pharisees, and goes forward to an event that Matthew does not mention: Jesus going over with his disciples what he had said to the Pharisees.
