New Defender's Study Bible Notes
14:17 cometh. The wording here is significant, perhaps indicating Mark’s own personal perspective on the world-shaking events about to take place, beginning in a “large upper room” (Mark 14:15) in his own mother’s home (Acts 12:12). He described Jesus and the twelve as coming (not going) to the upper room, as though he was there before they arrived. This in turn suggests that he may have been a silent observer, or listener, as Jesus met with His disciples there in Mark’s own upper room.
