Study 12 From The Book of Mark is: Mark 6:6b-30
- What can we learn (a) from our Lord’s method of preparing His disciples for the work which He intended them later more fully to do, and (b) from such details as ‘two by two’, to take nothing for their journey’ (cf. Mt. 10:10) ‘enter a house’ and ‘stay there’ ‘if… they refuse to hear you’, ‘they…preached that men should repent’?
- How would you sum up Herod’s character? What were the cause of this failure?
Note. 6:7, 30. Another new beginning—the first mission of the Twelve; and so, when they return to report, they are temporarily called ‘apostles’ or ‘missioners’.
