Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Mark 6:9

6:9 Be shod with sandals - As you usually are. Sandals were pieces of strong leather or wood, tied under the sole of the foot by thongs, something resembling modern clogs. The shoes which they are in St. Matthew forbidden to take, were a kind of short boots, reaching a little above the mid - leg, which were then commonly used in journeys. Our Lord intended by this mission to initiate them into their apostolic work. And it was doubtless an encouragement to them all their life after, to recollect the care which God took of them, when they had left all they had, and went out quite unfurnished for such an expedition. In this view our Lord himself leads them to consider it, #Luke 22:35:| When I sent you forth without purse or scrip, lacked ye any thing?

People's Bible Notes for Mark 6:9

Mr 6:9 [Be] shod with sandals. Matthew forbids shoes (Mt 10:10), instead of which they were to wear sandals. The ancient shoe resembled the modern; the sandal was a sole tied on the foot. The latter was usually worn by the common people and they were to dress like them.

    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

    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.
