A Textual Commentary On Acts 15:38

(a) A Latin Preface to St. Mark’s Gospel contained in very ancient MSS. states rather oddly, “denique amputasse sibi post fidem pollicem dicitur, ut sacerdotio reprobus haberetur ; sed tantum consentiens fidei prædestinata potuit electio ut nec sic in opere verbi perderet quod prius meruerat in genere” Even if this Preface be not the work of Jerome, it is at least nearly coeval with him. This statement seems to have originated in some misunderstanding of Acts xiii. 13., and xv. 37, 38., in which is described how John Mark departed from the work of Christian service, thus becoming figuratively pollice truncus. The latter part of the sentence seems to relate to the later service of John Mark as spoken of in 2 Tim. iv. 11. Thus whenever this story arose John Mark and the Evangelist were absolutely identified. (See a paper “Why was the epithet ‘stump-fingered’ applicd to St. Mark ?” in the “Journal of Classical and Sacred Philology,” June 1855, p. 224., by the present editor.) That this story, or this epithet  as applied to St. Mark is very early may be seen from his being termed “stump-fingered,” κολοβοδακτυλος by Hippolytus (Philosophumena, vii . 30.).]
