Wesley's Notes for Mark 1:34


1:34 He suffered not the devils to say that they knew him - That is, according to Dr. Mead's hypothesis, (that the Scriptural demoniacs were only diseased persons,) He suffered not the diseases to say that they knew him!

    Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus, In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

    I think it has open my mind a bit closer to knowing who Jesus really is.

    Once we accept Jesus Christ as our the bible states that we are new creatures in Christ Jesus. To show the world that we have had this experience and have become new, Been reborn, we are baptized by being immersed in water as He gave example. This symbolizes that the old man has passed away and behold all things have become new.
  • Pamela carboon
    John came to the Jews to preach the baptism of water for the remission of sins but as John clearly states, Jesus is mightier than He and would come to baptize us with the Holy Spirit. Jesus after he fulfilled the law of baptism in water said repent and believe the gospel, He did not tell us to be baptized in water. water baptism was for the Jews back then.
  • Irene123
    to coupe 1942 ( my birth year) on Mark ch.1 -- Jesus baptism was for our example, to be baptized and by immersion - not 'pouring' or 'sprinkling', and to prove to those many, many people standing around that Jesus was the messiah, hence too the voice from heaven - which they all heard. No, Jesus had no sin.
