Overview of the Gospel of Mark
Mark “Mark John” is also known as “John” in the Book of Acts. He is not John the Baptist. Peter (disciple) was a mentor to Mark. Mark did not walk with Jesus but ministered under Peter. Peter called Mark, his son. Mark’s work was written in Italy around A.D. 50-70 before the Book of Acts. Mark’s work is referred to as the “Memoirs of Peter” because he was very close to the disciple Peter and listen to everything Peter said. The Gospel of Luke borrowed a lot of Mark’s notes.
The Gospel of Mark focuses on the miracles that Jesus performed while spreading his ministry in Galilee. Mark’s Gospel emphasizes Jesus Christ’s human nature, emotions, and limitations. *Note: This side of Jesus demonstrates that there aren’t any human conditions that he is not aware of and therefore his believers can know that he understands our problems and situations.

45 Days To Read The Gospel Challenge – The Gospel of Mark Chapter Six: Jesus Walks on the Sea: Food Comes From Heaven.
OVERVIEW OF THE GOSPEL OF MARK CHAPTER SIX KJV
Jesus came into his own country with the disciples and began to teach in the Synagogue on the Sabbath. People heard his wisdom and became astounded. They said he was a common man and they knew his people. They did not want to honor Jesus or his disciples. Mark 6:4 4But Jesus said unto them, a prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. Jesus was not able to perform many miracles because of the unbelief. He sent the disciples out to preach in twos with the power over unclean spirits. They were only to take a staff, sandals for their feet, and one coat, no money. If there were rejected, they were to shake the dust of that place off their feet and keep going. Mark 6:13 KJV” And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.”
Note: Jesus told them they didn’t need to take money or weapons because he is with them on earth. His power provides for them.
Mark 6:14 “And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist has risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in him.” Note: Herod thought Jesus was John the Baptist risen from the dead. King Herod had John the Baptist beheaded for the favor of his wife’s daughter.
Upon hearing of John the Baptist’s death, Jesus and the disciples went to the desert by ship. Mark 6:34KJV “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: and he began to teach them many things.” As the day passed, the disciples told Jesus to send the people away so the people could go into the village to buy themselves food because they did not have much. Jesus told the disciples to feed the people. They had only 5 loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus blessed it. The disciples divided it among 5,000 people and after everyone was fed, there were 12 baskets of food leftover.
Note: Jesus provides, his amazing grace is sufficient. Food comes from heaven. In another book, Psalms 27-29 KJV 27He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea: 28And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations. 29So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
Jesus sent the disciples by ship to Bethsaida as he sent the crowds away. Later, the disciples were in a boat on the sea. They saw Jesus coming towards them walking on the sea. He got into the boat with them and they were astounded. Mark 6: 53- 56 KJV 53And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore. 54And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him, 55And ran through that whole region round about and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was. 56And whithersoever, he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets and sought him that they might touch him even if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

People with addictions in recovery are advised not to go back to their “old stomping grounds” or “old hang-out friends” because they are doing something different-recovering for life. Have you ever wanted to do something different than what you have been accustomed and you were talked out of it, later to regret it or think “what if”?

1. You will learn why Jesus was without honor among his own countryman. Mark6:1-6 KJV
Mark 1-6 KJV 1And he went out from thence and came into his own country, and his disciples follow him. 2And when the sabbath day came, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? 3Is 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. 4But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folks, and healed them. 6And he marveled because of their unbelief.
2. You will learn how Jesus prepared the 12 disciples before sending them out to preach. Mark 6: 7-12 KJV
Mark 6: 7-13 7And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two, and gave them power over unclean spirits; 8And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: 9But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. 10And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into a house, there abide till ye depart from that place.
11And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. 12And they went out, and preached that men should repent. 13And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. 13And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
3. You will learn Herod’s opinion of Jesus. Mark 6: 14-16 KJV
Mark 6: 14-16 KJV 14And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist has risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in him. 15Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets. 16But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he has risen from the dead.
4. You will learn why John the Baptist is beheaded. Mark 6: 14-29 KJV
14And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist has risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in him. 15Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets. 16But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he has risen from the dead.
17For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her. 18For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife. 19Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not: 20For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and a holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
21And when a convenient day has come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee; 22And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee. 23And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
24And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist. 25And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist. 26And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.
27And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison, 28And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb. 30And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
31And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
5. You will learn the miracle “Jesus feeds five thousand men”. Mark 6: 31-44 KJV
31And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. 33And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him. 34And Jesus, when he came out, saw many people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
35And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed: 36Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat. 37He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworths of bread, and give them to eat?
38He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. 39And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. 40And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. 41And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided him among them all. 42And they did all eat and were filled. 43And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes. 44And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
6. You will learn how Jesus appeared to the disciples on the sea. Mark 6: 45-52 KJV
45And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people. 46And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray. 47And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. 48And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night, he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.
49But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit and cried out: 50For 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. 51And he went up unto them into the ship, and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. Mark 6:52 “For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.”
7. You will learn from where people came to be healed by Jesus. Mark 6:53-56 KJV
53And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret and drew to the shore. 54And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him, 55And ran through that whole region round about and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was. 56And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets and sought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

Romans 10:9-10 9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.
