Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Mark 6:5


6:5 He could do no miracle there - Not consistently with his wisdom and goodness. It being inconsistent with his wisdom to work them there, where it could not promote his great end; and with his goodness, seeing he well knew his countrymen would reject whatever evidence could be given them. And therefore to have given them more evidence, would only have increased their damnation.


People's Bible Notes for Mark 6:5


Mr 6:5 He could there do no mighty work. Matthew states the reason: "Because of their unbelief" (Mt 13:58). It was not from want of power, but of the conditions that he required. Those in need of help must either have faith enough to seek his help, or their friends must have faith. As faith is the condition of the salvation of the soul, so Christ required it as a condition of the salvation of the body from disease or death.

    Mark 6:48, In the world, God, watches over us. and He knows when we are 'toiling in rowing'. He knows when the circumstances Wind are contrary to us. But God wants us to have faith. and God will walk to us.. but we must have faith and be mindful to not look elsewhere but only to God, with prayer..

    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. If God blessed you then he trusted you to use it for his purpose. Christ sent his apostle out with nothing imagine that today. God Bless

    50 For 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. (how quickly we will resort to 'fear' when faced with unexpected unknown explainable circumstances in /of life; we humans are so fragile mentality /spiritually as then also in 2019; BUT we are reminded by Jesus to BE OF GOOD CHEER at /in those moments.

    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.
