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.
