    6 Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him.

    Verse 1: Jesus left from where he was out, and came unto his own country. Nazareth. His disciples followed along-side with Him.​

    2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands!

    Verse 2 When the Sabbath had come Jesus began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Jesus Christ were astonished.

    Could you image coming and seeing Jesus Christ teaching in the synagogue on the Sabbath? It seems as though everyone was astonished at what He was teaching there.

    They said to themselves "Where did this Man get these things? - Talking about how much Jesus Christ had understood the scriptures of the Old Testament. About His great miracles, and healing of the blind, deaf, the dead, and mute.​

    3 Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him.

    Verse 3: Some of the people in the crowd, murmured and shrugged Jesus off, by what He had been doing by all those miracles some would just play him off as an ordinary man. Who is the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon?
    And are not His sisters here with us?

    So because of this they were hard hearted and they were offended by who He was.​

    4 But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.”

    Verse 4: Jesus said to the people "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country among his own relatives and in his own house."​

    5 Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.

    verse 5 So because of their hard hearts He could not do any mighty work there. Except help a few people, by laying on his hands, and healing the sick.​

    6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.

    Verse 6: Jesus Christ marveled because of their unbelief.

    Then he went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.​

    Sending Out the Twelve
    7 And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.

    verse 7 Jesus Christ called the twelve disciples to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and give them power over unclean spirits.​

    8 He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bag, no bread, no copper in their money belts—

    Verse 8 Jesus Commanded the twelve, to take nothing.​

    9 but to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics.

    Verse 9: But to wear sandals.​

    10 Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place.

    Verse 10: Also Jesus Christ said to his disciples : In whatever place you enter a house stay there, till you depart that place.​

    11 And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

    Verse 11: Whoever will not receive you nor heart you, then you depart from there shake off the dust under your feet. As a testimony against them. (They are sealed to their own fate - kicking dust under your feet.)

    Assuredly, I say to you - it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgement than for that City! - He is talking to his disciples here in these messages.​

    12 So they went out and preached that people should repent.

    Verse 12: So the disciples went out and preached that people should repent.​

    13 And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.

    verse 13: They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and healed them. - Confirmation that the disciples went and cast out demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and healed them
    John the Baptist Beheaded
    14 Now King Herod heard of Him, for His name had become well known. And he said, “John the Baptist is risen from the dead, and therefore these powers are at work in him.”

    Verse 14: Mark is now righting about King Herod. - How Herod heard of Jesus, for His name had become well known. And Herod - to himself - John the Baptist is risen from the dead, therefor these powers are at work in him.​

    15 Others said, “It is Elijah.”

    And others said, “It is the Prophet, or like one of the prophets.”

    Verse 15: Others have been saying it is Elijah, and others It is the Prophet, or like one of the prophets.​

    16 But when Herod heard, he said, “This is John, whom I beheaded; he has been raised from the dead!”

    Verse 16: When Herod heard about these man Jesus He said - This is really John whom I beheaded, He has raised from the dead!​

    17 For Herod himself had sent and laid hold of John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife; for he had married her.

    Verse 17: For Herod Himself had send and laid hold of John -

    And had him bound in prison for the sake of Herodias - Herod's brother -> Philipps -> Wife -> For whom he had married.​

    18 Because John had said to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.”

    Verse 18 John told Herod, Philipps brother, said to Him " It is not lawful for you to have your brothers wife. ​

    19 Therefore Herodias held it against him and wanted to kill him, but she could not; 20 for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just and holy man, and he protected him. And when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

    verse 19 So because of this Herodias held it against John the Baptist, and wanted to kill him, but she could not.

    verse 20 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just and holy man, and he protected him because of it. And when he hear, He did many things, and heard him gladly.​

    21 Then an opportune day came when Herod on his birthday gave a feast for his nobles, the high officers, and the chief men of Galilee.

    Verse 21: Then an opportune day came when Herod decided to throw Himself a birthday party, and gave a feast for his nobles and the high officers and the chief men of Galilee.​

    22 And when Herodias’ daughter herself came in and danced, and pleased Herod and those who sat with him, the king said to the girl, “Ask me whatever you want, and I will give it to you.”

    Verse 22: So after inviting everyone to the part - Herodias - Phillips Brothers Wifes - Daughter herself can in and danced and pleased Herod and those who sat with Him, the king said to the girl. "Ask me whatever you want, and I will give it to you."​

    And she said, “The head of John the Baptist!”

    verse 24: Herodias told her daughter the She desired the head of John the baptist.​

    25 Immediately she came in with haste to the king and asked, saying, “I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter.”

    Verse 25 - The daughter came hasted to the king and asked " I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter.​

    26 And the king was exceedingly sorry; yet, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he did not want to refuse her.

    Verse 26 - Because of making the promise of Asking anything She wanted - She asked what her Mother wanted - which was John the Baptist Head on a Platter.

    Verse 26 Because of this the king was exceedingly sorry, but because of the oaths and because of those who were at Herods Birthday Party remember the promise! Herod could not refute and go back on His oath.​

    27 Immediately the king sent an executioner and commanded his head to be brought. And he went and beheaded him in prison,

    In Luke 4:14-30 there is a similar account of Jesus going to a synagogue in Nazareth to teach during the Sabbath. In these verses the men were furious when Jesus pointed to himself as the one written about in Isaiah. They wanted to lead him to a precipice to cast him down and kill him. There are precipices in the vicinity of Nazareth. Construction and landfill have obscured some of these that were visible to 19th century American tourists. There is yet a Mt. of Precipice on the outskirts of town with some vertical cliffs thought by some to be the place where they tried to lead Jesus to his death. He escaped their grasp.

    30 Then the apostles gathered to Jesus and told Him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught.

    Verse 30: Afterwards, then the apostles gathered to Jesus and told Him all things, both about what they had done, what they had taught while out sharing the good news, healing, and by casting out demons. They were able to do so because Jesus Christ told them that they would.​

    31 And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.

    Verse 31: And Jesus said to the Apostles, 'Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.'

    Just is to aside and rest in a deserted place while possible possibly to reflect on God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and be thankful to be with each other. There have been mean people who have came wand went, with us, and they did not have time to eat.

    There seems to people who are getting hungry from their long travels, and Jesus is having and showing compassion towards these men, women and children.​

    32 So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.

    Verse 32: So The Apostles and Jesus went to a deserted place, in the boat by themselves.​

    33 But the multitudes saw them departing, and many knew Him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came together to Him.

    Verse 33: The multitude of people saw Jesus and the Apostles departing and ran there on foot from all the surrounding towns and cities, they arrived before them an came together to Jesus Christ, welcoming him, greeting him, and asking to be healed.​

    34 And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.

    Verse 34: When Jesus came out of the boat, and saw such a great multitude of people, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd.

    Because of this great compassion for them, He taught them many things.​

    35 When the day was now far spent, His disciples came to Him and said, “This is a deserted place, and already the hour is late.

    verse 35: When the day was now far spent. His disciples came to Jesus and said ; This place is deserted, and it is an hour late.

    So it is progressively getting later as most of the day has went by right now.​

    36 Send them away, that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy themselves bread; for they have nothing to eat.”

    verse 36 The disciples asked Jesus to send the people away, that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy themselves bread - for they have nothing to eat with them (the disciples).​


    37 But He answered and said to them, “You give them something to eat.”

    And they said to Him, “Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give them something to eat?”

    verse 37 Jesus tells them, no am not going to send them away, you give them something to eat.

    They reply back with shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give them something to eat?​

    38 But He said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.”


    And when they found out they said, “Five, and two fish.”

    verse 38 Jesus Christ then just go on to ask them, how many loaves of bread do the disciples have with them. (Notice earlier, when they were speaking with Jesus in verse 36) -> The disciples asked Jesus to send the people away because they had nothing to eat, when they in fact did have food. (Sarcasm of us humans ? Possibly)

    They have five loafs, and two fish.​

    39 Then He commanded them to make them all sit down in groups on the green grass.

    verse 39 : Then Jesus commanded the apostles to make them all sit down in groups on the green grass.​


    40 So they sat down in ranks, in hundreds and in fifties.

    Verse 40: The disciples had sat people down in ranks, in some hundreds of people, some in fifty group of people.

    41 And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fish He divided among them all.

    verse 41 Jesus had taken the five loves, and the two fish, -
    He look up to heaven,
    Blessed and broke the loaves - gave them to His disciples -

    To set before them -> and the two fish he divided among them - all.​


    42 So they all ate and were filled.

    Verse 42: They all ate until they were filled: This is for us today spiritually, Jesus Christ is the bread of life, and the everlasting water. He can fill you up spiritually, the more you lean and trust and look towards God, and the Lord Jesus Christ.​

    43 And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and of the fish.

    Verse 43: After everyone was done and filled up, the disciples went around and picked up the leftovers, and had twelve basket full of bread and fish and fragments. For enough to feed each of the disciples.​

    44 Now those who had eaten the loaves were about five thousand men.

    Verse 44: There were about five thousand men there that day.
