Mark 6:7-11

Chapter Blog – Deuteronomy

7 Calling the Twelve to him, he sent them out two by two and gave them authority over evil spirits. 8 These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff–no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. 9 Wear sandals but not an extra tunic. 10 Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. 11 And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them.”

One response to “Mark 6:7-11

  1. sent them out by two

    1) Christ taught them and recognize it was time for them to take what he has taught them and start doing – so there is an expectation on our part that soon after our decision to follow after Christ that we are going to need to start doing

    2) Accountability – with two people there is accountability between each other to ensure that we do exactly what we are suppose to do – aka that we dont sin plus so we dont stop doing what we are suppose to be doing in other words not messing around

    vs 8 — reading a little this was to focus on the divine and that God would take care of them

    vs 9 – sandals were more common and shoes were for the wealthier—two tunics would imply that an individual had wealth and or status—therefore there message may be ignored because of wealth which at times is a problem in the church—people get bent out of shape when pastors have too much, drive a nice car, live in a big house, ect…

    vs 10 –
