Chapter 6

1. Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him.
2. And when the High Holy Day had come, He began to teach in the temple. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, "Far-out! Where did this man get these things? And what wisdom is this that is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands!
3. "Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and the bro of James, Joe, Jude, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?" They were offended by Him.
4. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own lodge."
5.Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick p eople and healed them.
6. And He marveled because of their unbelief(1). Then He went about the campgrounds teaching in a circle.
7. And He called the twelve to Him, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over demons.
8. He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff-no bag, no bread, no money in their backpack-
9. but to wear sandals, and one of everything.
10. Also He said to them, "In whatever place you enter a lodge, stay there till you depart from that place.
11. "And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Guaranteed, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that camp!"

12. So they went out and preached that people should turn from Babylon and turn towards God.
13. And they cast out many demons (1a), and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
14. Now King Herod heard of Him, for His name had become well known. And he said, "John the Baptist is risen from the dead, and therefore these powers are at work in him."
15. Others said, "It is Eliyah." And others said, "It is the Prophet (2) , or like one of the prophets."
16. But when Herod heard, he said, "This is John, whom I beheaded; he has risen from the dead (3)!"
17. For Herod himself had sent and laid hold of John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his bro Phill's wife; for he had married her.
18. For John had said to Herod, "It is not right for you to marry your bro's wife."
19. Therefore Herodias held it against him and wanted to kill him, but she could not;
20. for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just and high holy hippie, and he protected him. And when he heard him, he kicked down to him many times, and kicked down to him gladly.
21. Then an opportune day came when Herod on his birthday gave a feast for his nobles, the high holy hippies, and the chief men of Galilee.
22. And when Herodias' daughter herself came in and danced, and it pleased Herod and those who sat with him, the king said to the girl, "Ask whatever you want, and I will kick it down to you."
23. He swore to her, "Whatever you ask me, I will kick it down to you, up to half my kingdom."
24. So she went out and asked her momma, "What shall I ask?" And she said, "The head of John the Baptist!"
25. Immediately she came in with haste to the king and asked, saying, "I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter."
26. And the king was exceedingly sorry; yet, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he did not want to refuse her (4).
27. And immediately the king sent an executioner and ordered his head to be brought. And he went and beheaded him in prison,
28. brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her momma.
29. And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took away his corpse and laid it in a tomb.
30. Then the apostles (5) gathered to Jesus and told Him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught.
31. And He said to them, "Come aside by yourselves to a wilderness and rest a while." For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.
32. So they departed to a wilderness n the boat by themselves.
33. But the multitudes saw them departing, and many knew Him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came to gather to Him.
34. And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great gathering and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them all things.
35. And when the day was now far spent, His disciples came to Him and said, "This is a wilderness, and already the hour is late.
36. "So send them away, that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy themselves bread; for they have nothing to eat."
37. But He answered and said to them, "You call main circle and give them something to eat." And they said to Him, "That would take 200 days of a temp's wages to give them something to eat?"
38. But He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go and see." And when they found out they said, "Five, and two fish."
39. Then He commanded them to make them all sit down in circles on the green grass.
40. So they called, "Focus (6)!" and sat down in circles of hundreds, and of fifties.
41. And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, blessed them and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to bliss them; and the two fish He divided among them all.
42. So that they all ate and were filled.
43. And they took up twelve baskets full of leftover bread and fish.
44. Now those who had eaten the loaves were about five thousand men.
45. Immediately He made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, to the Fish Camp, while He sent the gathering away.
46. And when He had sent them away He departed to the mountain to pray.
47. Now when evening came, the boat was in the middle of the Lake; and He was alone on the land.
48. Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was agro. And about 3 a.m. He came to them, walking on the Lake, and would have passed them by.
49. But when they saw Him walking on the water (7); they supposed it was a spirit, and cried out;
50. for they all saw Him and were troubled. And immediately He talked with them and said to them, "Welcome Home! It is I; do not be afraid."
51. Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled.
52. For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.
53. When they had crossed over, they came to the land of the Garden (8), and anchored there.
54. And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him,
55. ran through that whole surrounding camp, and began to carry about on stretchers those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.
56. Wherever He entered, into camps, circles, or a gathering, they laid the sick in the trade circles, and taxed Him that they might just touch the hem of His hoodie. And as many as touched Him were healed.

2. Prophet: Israel was promised by Moses that one day God would send them a Messiah. A deliverer. One who would save them from Babylon.
3. Resurrection: The Jews did not believe in reincarnation. They believed that a man lived his life to the full for God and then he would be judged. Those who lived for God go to eternal life and those who lived for Babylon to eternal death.
4. Herod let his pride move him to this action. Such are the ways of Babylon.
5. Apostle: A disciple is a devotee in training to be sent and preach the message of the kingdom: "Come out of Babylon." An apostle is a disciple who when ready is sent.
