In Matt 26:64 the evangelist redacts Mark 14:62 by adding the phrase ἀπἄρτι prior to Mark’s ὄψεσθε τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐξ δεξιῶν καθήµενον τῆς δυνάµεως καὶ ἐρχόµενον µετὰ τῶν νεφελῶν τoῦ οὐρανοῦ. The present study attempts to demonstrate (1) that this addition does not negate a reference to the parousia, as argued, inter alios, by John P. Meier and R.T. France, and (2) that ἀπἄρτι in Matt 26:64 functions to draw a sharp contrast between the humiliation of Jesus’ passion and his glorious parousia, which would happen in the near future.
