Mark 6 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: Mark 6:30-34 – Jesus Pities Sheep Without Shepherd

Mark 6:30-34 – Jesus Pities Sheep Without Shepherd

|| Matthew 9:36[1]

MK6:30 Now the apostles rejoined Jesus and told him everything, both what they had done and what they had taught. MK6:31 Then Jesus said to them: “All of you come way [with me] to a private spot in a place of solitude and then get a little rest.” For there were many people coming and going and they had no leisure time to even eat. MK6:32 So they left in their boat for a lonely place for some privacy. MK6:33 However, some people saw them leaving and recognized them, so they ran on foot from all the villages [[and got there ahead of them]].[2] MK6:34 Now when Jesus went ashore and saw so many people he was moved with compassion,[3] because they were all like sheep without a shepherd. So he began to teach them many things.

Mark 4:10-13 – How Will You Understand?

|| Matthew 13:10-15;[1] Luke 8:9, 10

MK4:10 Now later when Jesus was alone, the Twelve and others around him asked him about the parables. MK4:11 So, Jesus said to them: “You have been entrusted with the knowledge of the mystery regarding God’s Realm, but to those outside everything is spoken in parables. MK4:12 ‘So that they may look, but, behold! they do not understand! And, hearing they may hear and yet still not understand. Otherwise, they at some time might turn around and their sins be forgiven.’[2] [Isaiah 6:9, 10] MK4:13 So Jesus said to them: “If you do not understand this parable, how will you understand all the other parables?”

Mark 4:1-9 – Teaching in Parables

|| Matthew 13:1-9;[1] Luke 8:4-8

MK4:1 Now Jesus began to teach by the seashore and there gathered around him a crowd so large he got into a boat and sat a bit off shore. The whole crowd was on the beach at water’s edge. MK4:2 Then Jesus taught them many things by means of parables, and in his teaching he said to them: MK4:3 “Listen! A sower went out to sow,[2] MK4:4 and it happened as he sowed that some [seed] fell by the side of the road. Now the birds of heaven came and picked them up. MK4:5 Also, some [seed] fell on rocky ground where there was little soil. So, the seed sprouted quickly because it had no depth of soil. MK4:6 But, when the sun rose the sprout was scorched and because it had no root it withered away. MK4:7 Now [other seed] fell among thorns and when the thorns also grew up they choked it producing nothing. MK4:8 Some, though, fell on good soil and it did produce something, sprouting and increasing – some yielding thirty times, some sixty times, and others even one-hundred times!” MK4:9 And Jesus added: “Let the one with ears – hear!”

[2] Sower went out to sow: The parable illustrates four reactions to the teachings of Jesus – then, and today.
