  • John taylor for verse 4
    How true this statement of Jesus. For 45 years I have seen this happen, but when I have gone to other country's God shows up. Haiti: The town where witchcraft has thrived the most, has been turned upside down by the Gospel. But in my own home church, they go on as if there was no God to answer to. Even after writing, Revival or Apostatize, a book showing where the church is at and the remedy, it was shunned and I placed in a corner.

    We have more fear for the virus then we do the judgement.

    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.

    34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd. (2018, the world is the same as then; every ...

    Verse 34~Jesus had deep concern and compassion for the people. We can be sure that he still has that same concern and love for people today.
  • Eutychus
    Consider the logistics in vs 44...5,000 men, divided into sub-groups of 50, were served by 12 disciples...

    That means that each disciple was required to carry, and to pass out and to serve 8.33 groups of 50 (not counting women and children). That might well qualify as a miracle in itself!
  • Stanjett
    Pass the bread. I think that's what they did. Take some and pass it on down the line. Something like giving of tites in church.
  • A disciple
    "And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her." Just BEING SORRY is not repentance if there's nothing in the heart that would act on the Word of God and be converted. Sitting day after day in a stew of conviction, but never getting up and coming to Jesus to get right with God, will only add to the evil of a damned life.
  • A disciple
    "and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things?" How are people more readily inclined to believe evil! God means good to raise up His Saints from among the people, of their own children and their neighbors' children; but His love is scoffed at and wickedly maligned, and the one raised up and sent to them is a scandal to them! Woe to them who call good evil!
  • Obbie Beal
    WOW! In verse 11 above, Jesus mention those ancient /destroyed cities Sodom and Gomorrah, plus He warns us there is 'the day of judgement coming. WOW!
  • A disciple
    "..and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things?.." I think that people too easily excuse each other's faults and evil ways. We could just say about them, "Familiarity breeds contempt;" and let them go for their disbelief: but is that really the way God looks at them? If God raises up His servants from among any people; it is not for them to despise them.
  • Evangelist, Jessie
    Mark 6th Chapter!
    When I read how John was beheaded because he preached the truth. The word have not changed. John was not looking to please man . Therefore he became a true witness for Jesus Christ. We the people of God must never yield to the worlds ways. God has chose us to hold up his name amen.

    Verse 11 tells us how to react when people reject our message. We are simply to shake the dust off our feet and leave. There is no need to argue.
  • Bob corrigan for verse 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.

    Avsje Lazarus believed in his lifetime, therefore Jesus accepted his faith and rose him from the dead. The demon-possessed man would have believed if he were not in his situation, as evidenced by his request to be a disciple. It's different when a person has faith and is just incapacitated - Jesus honors that. It's unbelief that makes him not want to perform miracles. The conditions aren't right. Of course, he could, but he has a requirement and will not extend his grace to those who do not deserve it.
  • Avsje for verse 5
    Jesus did not do mighty miracles because of their lack of faith in Him. He raised Lazarus from the dead when no one had faith, neither did Lazarus because he was dead. Jesus casted out demons when the man had no faith, for the demon had taken over and was in full control. There was always a reason why Jesus did what he did. Of course, Jesus has the power to heal the world, but while in his home town, he marveled at their unbelief. For by faith are we made whole. So, does our lack of faith prevent Jesus from healing or does it prevent our bodies from being healed?
  • Bozki
    The Multitude Amazed, Wondered and followed Jesus because of the Miracle He has Done, Just like us, we only believe God because of the miraculous things He has done in our life, But God wants us to believe and have Faith in him of who He is and what are His capable of. Renew our Mind Believe and have Faith in God not by his work but by Who HE is.
  • Lawanda for verse 31
    Jesus knowing how much even we ourselves over work, calls us aside to rest a while, which reminds me of the Sabbath which was set apart for us to rest with the Lord of the Sabbath and be refreshed to carry on through out the rest of the week.Thankful the offer still stands for us today rest in Jesus there is no better rest. Amen
  • Anonymous for verse 11
    If a person don t accept the word in the day of visitation you may not get that chance again Don t give that which is good to dog or cast your pearls before swains It will be judgement for that person when Christ return
  • Charles Huggins for verse 32
    The question was where is the desert place mentioned in Mark 6:32
  • Melanie for verse 3
    some people have cast doubt in whether Jesus was a carpenter like Joseph, but this verse leaves no doubt. Clearly it was a family business and is what he was trained to do. It was what he grew up with.

    Jesus is our Savior and John was covered by the same blood of the Lord. Jesus used prayer as the weapon toward all corruption. And Father God placed John Baptist in a certain position. Just like all of us who reject Christ we r in a certain position of a test. Reading the book of Mark it showed the love and compassion Jesus have on His people. Even when Herod did not understand the consequence of a promise to his daughter. Its details how we wont back down. Example God tried to direct us to the right spouse. But due to saving face on what others would say. We marry the wrong spouse. Then we r beaten up and depress we call on God our Lord Jesus Christ. Re-read Verses 4-34. And look in our mirror to see the real truth of self. Jesus prayed all the time. Then He waited for the answer from His Father. The answer to the writer Brimerfrancis. This chapter is a true blessing. Remember saints this is not our world we r just living in it. What is our position?

    "come with me and get some rest"- Mark 6 v.31
  • Blessing dzikira
    You may walk, dine with and be part of Christ's Church yet without personal revelation of who He is-"that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection."

    @Les Noll,
    Not to take away from the sorrow that Jesus must have experienced when he heard of the death of John the Baptist. I am confident that Jesus already was aware of his demise and was not taken by surprise. Jesus knowing where John was after his death was also a comfort. Many people today do not have this comfort, not knowing where their family and friends are after death. I believe Jesus feels much more sorrow for those that reject him and his truth of eternal salvation.
  • Jay
    Whenever any person will not receive (rejection) of God's message or messenger then judgment always follows. There are many recorded events in the bible to verify this truth. Jesus stated himself that shaking the dust from under their feet was a testimony (witness) against them. This truth applies to an individual, group, town, county, state, and nation(s) that receive not (rejects) God's truth (word of God). Judgment or blessings will be handed out by God depending on the decisions and the motives of those that God is trying to reach with his truth.
  • André
    Of course Jesus could bring John the Baptist to life if he wanted to.
    But there was no need, because John the Baptist's mission was already ended, he himself declared in John 3:30 '' He (Jesus Christ) must increase, but I (John the Baptist) must decrease''. And the lowest John went is to the grave.
    God bless you.
  • Peter
    Couldn't have Jesus reattached John's head if he wanted to?
