Mark 6:1-10

Step III: Immediate Context


Pre: The pericope of 6:1-6(7-13) follows a string of miracles in Chapter 5. Exorcisms, healings, a raising from the dead-- all done by Jesus in response to faith.

Post: vv. 6b-13 deal with the Mission of the Twelve, followed by the death of John the Baptist. (Interesting that even Herod reacts to Jesus with a semblance of faith, but not the hometown crowd!)
