Mark Chapter 6

Mark 6

1And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.

2And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

3Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

4But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

5And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

6And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

7And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

8And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:

9But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

10And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

11And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

12And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

13And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

14And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

15Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.

16But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.

17For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her.

18For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.

19Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:

20For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

21And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;

22And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

23And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

24And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

25And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.

26And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

27And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,

28And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.

29And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

30And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

31And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

32And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.

33And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.

34And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

35And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:

36Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.

37He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?

38He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.

39And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.

40And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.

41And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

42And they did all eat, and were filled.

43And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.

44And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.

45And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.

46And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.

47And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.

48And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

49But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:

50For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.

51And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

52For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

53And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

54And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,

55And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.

56And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

  1. NLT verse41Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he kept giving the bread to the disciples so they could distribute it to the people. He also divided the fish for everyone to share. Now I am not the best in math but that was a miracle .

  2. v 41 And when He had taken the five loaves and
    the two fishes, He looked up to heaven, and blessed,
    and brake the loaves, and gave them to His disciples
    to set before them; and two fishes divided He among
    them all.

    v 42 And they did all eat,and were filled.
    v 44 ” Were about five thousand men.”

    Little is much when GOD is in it. When we place it in
    His hands and He blesses it.
    He is our spiritual bread to share with others.
    God always gives back what we give to Him, and
    He multiplys it.( We cannot out give the LORD)
    As we look up to HIM … What will we place in
    HIS hands today?
    THANK YOU, JESUS

  3. v5.-6 and he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. And He marveled because of their unbelief. And He went rounds about the villages teaching. Unbelief hindered many to be healed. Being in the presence of the Saviour, but rejecting all that he has for you…ugh!!

  4. Vs. 46, “And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.” We all need to find alone time with God. It is a time of communion and refreshing in the Lord.

  5. 36Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.

    The disciples must have forgot that they were in a desert.

  6. 18For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.

    19Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:

    Funny how the when people get corrected they, wanna pacify you or kill you. Darkness doesnt like the light. Let your light shine!

  7. I am looking at an illustration of some 1st century carpenters tools.

    Well worn tools of Jesus earthly trade like these proably hung in his old home in Nazareth. How hard is even today to see spirituality of ordinary people.

  8. v 6 NIV “And he was amazed at their lack of faith.”
    The “church people” (blinded by tradition) had not enough faith to see that they were in the presence of the Savior. Lord, give me spiritual eyes that I may see you in the everyday events of my life.

  9. 34And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

    Even though Jesus grieved over the death of John the Baptist, he was still moved with compassion when the people came out.
    We shouldn’t let the cares of life get in the way of reaching the lost.

  10. The miracles of Jesus never get old to me, they never cease to amaze me. Jesus walking on the water is so amazing to me! Jesus is the Miracle Worker!

  11. My GOD is MORE than ENOUGH!

    40And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
    41And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
    42And they did all eat, and were filled.
    43And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
    44And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.

    I call it the organized miracle. They sat them doen and the Leaders served them.

    Use what you have access to and watch GOD multiply it.

    BE Church

  12. Mark 6:5 In this verse It was not that Jesus did not have power to perform miracles at Nazareth ,but that He chose not to in such a climateof unbelief(v.6).

    Mark 6:52 they considered not the miracle of the loaves. If they had understood the feeding of the 5,000, they would not have been amazed at Jesus’ walking on the water or His calming the waves. their heart was hardened. They were showing themselves to be similar to Jesus’ opponents,who also exhibited hardness of heart.

  13. 50 All of them saw him and were terrified. But at that same time he said, “Don’t worry! I am Jesus. Don’t be afraid.” 51 He then got into the boat with them, and the wind died down. The disciples were completely confused. 52 Their minds were closed, and they could not understand the true meaning of the loaves of bread. CEV
    Let our minds be open to understand the true meaning of every miracle God wants to do through us with whatever supplies we have available.

  14. V22-24 “22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

    23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

    24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.”

    We must be careful who and what we get ourselves involved in. It may seem like we’re just playing around with a small devil, just a little unclean spirit that we can shake easily enough… but you never know what bigger, nastier spirits could be hiding just behind that small one, ready to pull the strings as soon as we’re lured in and tangled up (not to mention the price paid by the innocent bystanders like John the Baptist who will fall victim to the consequences of our poor decisions.)

    James 1:14-16 “14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

    15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

    16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.”

    It’s been said before, sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay and burn you when it is through. Sin is a cruel master. Samson kept playing around with sin and getting involved with the Philistines. It seemed he could shake them easily enough, until one day he got all tied up with Delilah. Just a little unholiness, just a little lust, just a little rebellion…

    Then he ended up stripped of his power and place in God, blinded, enslaved, and just going around in circles doing the enemy’s bidding… Judges 16:20 “And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.”

    Skate the edge, dabble in sin, and play with God long enough and you’ll end up burned. Just because it “works” for a season doesn’t mean everything’s fine. It’s all too easy to lose sight of just how much Jesus loves us and just how much the devil hates us. The devil isn’t our playmate, sin isn’t our playground; we’re in big trouble anytime we try to fool ourselves otherwise and believe the devil is anything but a murderer and sin anything but a death-trap.

  15. This chapter is (should be) awake up call. Could it be that we have become numb to what God is saying to us; “But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house”. God forbid that we have or become too comfortable that we hinder the move of Jesus; “For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened”. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  16. 52For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

    53And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

    54And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,

    Sometimes you have to go through your own trials to know him… when you really truly look he’ll reveal himself

  17. Verse 34 Message Version says…..”When Jesus arrived, he saw this huge crowd. At the sight of them, his heart broke—like sheep with no shepherd they were. He went right to work teaching them.” This reminds me of what Pastor says about the City/Region of Fort Worth. We need to get right to work teaching them about Jesus!

  18. 34 Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things

    Be Church.

  19. 11And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

    One of the toughest lessons of life is to learn to do this with the people whom we love most.
