Bible Commentary for Mark 6:4

Wesley's Notes for Mark 6:4


6:3 Is not this the carpenter? - There can be no doubt, but in his youth he wrought with his supposed father Joseph.

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.

6:6 He marvelled - As man. As he was God, nothing was strange to him.
