[Mark 6]




     {Mat 9:27-34 Probably Capernaum.}



     {Mar 6:1-6a & Mat 13:54-58 Nazareth.}



     6:1 And he went out from there, and he came into his fatherland, and his disciples follow him.6:2 And when* it became the Sabbath, he began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing him were being astounded, saying, From where did this one receive these things? And what is the wisdom which has been given to this man? And how are such miracles happening through his hands? 6:3 Is this not the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Jude and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us? And they were being offended at him.



     6:4 But Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor, except in his fatherland and amonghis own relatives and in his own house.6:5 And he was not able to do any miracle there, except that he laid his hands upon a few who were sick and healed them. 6:6 And he was marveling because of their unbelief.




     {Mar 6:6b-13 & Mat 9:35-10:42 & Luk 9:1-6 Third circuit of Galilee.}



     And he was going around the villages in a circle, teaching.



     6:7 And he calls to him the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and he was giving them authority over the unclean spirits; 6:8 and he commanded them in order that they should take nothing *for the journey, except only a staff; no knapsack, no bread, no brass coins in the belt; 6:9but only tied on sandals, also doĎ not clothe yourselves with two tunics. 6:10 And he said to them,Wherever youĎ enter into a house, abideĎ there until youĎ should go from there. 6:11And as many as may not accept youĎ, nor may not hear youĎ, while traveling out from there, shake-offĎ the dust which is underneath yourĎ feet *for a testimony to them. Assuredly, I am saying to youĎ, It will be more tolerable for Sodom or Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.6:12 And they,the twelve, went out and were preaching in order that they all should repent. 6:13 And they were casting out many demons and anointing many with oil who were sick and healing them.




     {Mar 6:14-29 & Mat 14:1-12 & Luk 9:7-9.}



     6:14 And King Herod heard of this; for* his name had become apparent and he said, John the Immerser* was raised from the dead and because of this, these powers are working in him.



     6:15 Others were saying, It is Elijah.



     But others were saying, It is a prophet, like one of the prophets of old.



     6:16 But when* he heard of it, Herod said, John, whom I beheaded, it is he, he was raised from the dead.




     6:17 For* Herod himself had sent forth and took-hold of John and bound him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife, because he had married her. 6:18 For* John said to Herod, 'It is not legal for you to have your brother's wife.' 6:19 But Herodias was holding it against him. And she was willing to kill him and was not able; 6:20 for* Herod feared John, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man, and was protecting him. And having heard him, he was doing many things, and was gladly hearing him, often.



     6:21 And when* it happened to be an opportune day, along with his birthday, when Herod made* a supper to his great-men and the commanders, and the foremost men of Galilee; 6:22 and the daughter of Herodias herself came in and danced, and she pleased Herod and those who reclined at the meal together with him. And the king said to the girl, Ask me whatever you wish and I will be giving it to you. 6:23 And he swore to her, Whatever you might ask me, I will be giving it to you, up to half of my kingdom.



     6:24 Now she went out and said to her mother, What shall I ask for?



     Now she said, The head of John the Immerser*.



     6:25 And she came in promptly to the king and diligently asked, saying, I wish that* you might give me immediately the head of John the Immerser* upon a platter.



     6:26 And the king became very sorrowful, but because of his oaths and those who reclined at the meal together with him, he did not wish to reject her. 6:27 And immediately, the king sent forth an executioner and commanded his head to be brought. 6:28 Now he went and beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head upon a platter and gave it to the girl, and the girl gave it to her mother. 6:29 And when* his disciples heard of it, they came and lifted up his corpse and laid it in a tomb.




     {Mar 6:30-32 & Mat 14:13 & Luk 9:10 & Joh 6:1 East shore of Galilee.}



     6:30 And the apostles are gathered together with Jesus, and they reported to him all things, both how-much they had done and how-much they had taught. 6:31 And he said to them, YouĎyourselves come-hereĎ privately into a desolate place and restĎ yourselves a few. For* there were many coming and going and they had not even had an opportunity to eat. 6:32 And they went away into a desolate place by ship privately.




     {Mar 6:33-44 & Mat 14:13-21 & Luk 9:11-17 & Joh 6:2-14.}



     6:33 And the crowds saw them going and many recognized him and they ran together there on foot from all the cities and went before them, and came together to him. 6:34 And Jesus came forth, and saw a large crowd and he had compassion upon them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd and he began to teach them many things.



     6:35 And since it was already becoming a late hour, his disciples came to him and say, The place is desolate and already it is a late hour; 6:36 dismiss them, in order that they may go into the circle of the rural-area and villages, and may buy bread for themselves, for* they might not have anything to eat.



     6:37 But he answered and said to them, GiveĎ them something to eat.



     And they say to him, Should we go away and buy two hundred denarii worth of loaves, and might give them that to eat?



     6:38 Now he says to them, How many loaves do youĎ have? GoĎ and seeĎ.



     And when* they knew, they said, Five and two fish. 6:39 And he commanded them all to recline by groups; all the groups upon the pale-green grass. 6:40 And they leaned-back in rows ofa hundred apiece and rows of fifty apiece. 6:41 And he took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he gave-thanks and broke the loaves, and he was giving them to his disciples in order that they might place the bread beside them, and he divided the two fish among them all. 6:42 And they all ate and were fed. 6:43 And they took up twelve baskets of broken pieces, and also pieces of the fish. 6:44 And those who were eating the loaves were approximately five thousand men.




     {Mar 6:45-56 & Mat 14:22-36 & Joh 6:15-21.}



     6:45 And immediately he urged his disciples to step onto the ship, and to precede him to thearea beyond-that into Bethsaida, until he should dismiss the crowd. 6:46 And after he had bid farewell to them, he went away into the mountain to pray.



     6:47 And having become evening, the ship was in the middle of the sea and he was alone upon the land. 6:48 And he saw them tormented by the rowing, for* the wind was adverse to them, and he comes to them around the fourth watch of the night, walking upon the sea, and he was willing to have passed by them. 6:49 But when* they saw him walking upon the sea, they thought it to be an apparition and cried out; 6:50 for* they all saw him and were disturbed. But immediately, he spoke with them, and says to them, HaveĎ courage. I am here. DoĎ not be afraid.6:51 And he went up to them into the ship, and the wind paused, and they were exceedingly, exceptionally, astonished in themselves and marveled! 6:52 For* they did not understand what happened on the loaves, for* their heart was hardening. 6:53 And having ferried over, they came upon the land of Gennesaret and they were anchored there, 6:54 and coming out of the ship, immediately the peoplerecognized him.




     6:55 Having ran around that whole region around there, they began to carry around those who were ill upon their pallets, where they were hearing: he is over there. 6:56 And wherever he was traveling, if into villages or cities or the rural-area, they were laying the sick in the marketplaces and was pleading with him, in order that if-only they might touch the hem of his garment, and as many as would touch him were being cured.
