People's Bible Notes for Mark 6:45


Mr 6:45 To go to the other side before unto Bethsaida. John says, "toward Capernaum" (Joh 6:17). Capernaum was the ultimate point to be reached; but on the way there they were to sail along the coast in a northwest direction, and touch at Bethsaida, take into the boat Jesus, who would go there by land, and then sail southwest to Capernaum. The ruins at Bethsaida are found near where the Jordan empties into the Sea of Galilee, and not very far distant from the scene of the miracle. For notes on the storm and Christ walking on the sea, see Mt 14:22-32. Compare John 6:15-21.

    Christ not only fed the lost sheep but he fed their souls first, he used little, we need to remember waste not want not for how many suffer in hunger in all the nations. we have people waste on foolish items more worried about their looks then those in need.

    Is 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.
    I would like to have a footstool that he made. I'm sure he made great wood works. Er, He also made the world and all that is in it.
