Bible Commentary for Mark 6:11

Wesley's Notes for Mark 6:11


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?

6:10 #Mt 10:11|; Lu 9:4.

6:12 #Lu 9:6|.

6:13 They anointed with oil many that were sick - Which St. James gives as a general direction, #Jas 5:14|,15, adding those peremptory words, And the Lord shall heal him - He shall be restored to health: not by the natural efficacy of the oil, but by the supernatural blessing of God. And it seems this was the great standing means of healing, desperate diseases in the Christian Church, long before extreme unction was used or heard of, which bears scarce any resemblance to it; the former being used only as a means of health; the latter only when life is despaired of.


Discussion for Mark 6:11

  • Bob corrigan on Mark 6:11
    When the Jews traveled back to Israel from lands they considered pagan. they would shake off the dust of the pagan lands as it was considered unholy and rejected by God. So, when Jesus commanded to shake the dust off the feet when a village or city rejected the disciples, it was a statement that God would reject and condemn that village or city. In Acts 13:49-51, we see Paul and Barnabas, "shaking the dust off their feet" toward the Jews stirring up trouble.
