                         "THE GOSPEL OF MARK"

                              Chapter Six

Jesus returned to His home of Nazareth to an unreceptive audience, but
continued teaching in the surrounding villages (1-6).  He then sent out
the Twelve with power to exorcise demons and to heal, with a commission
to preach repentance (7-13).  About this time John the Baptist was
imprisoned and beheaded by King Herod (14-29).  Soon after the Twelve
returned from their healing and preaching ministry, Jesus fed over 5000
people with five loaves and two fish (30-44).  Sending His disciples to
sail toward Bethsaida, Jesus prayed on a mountain and then walked on
the sea to His disciples in their boat (45-52).  After arriving at the
land of Gennesaret, people brought their sick wherever He was.  As many
as touched Jesus were healed (53-56).
