Mark Meditations: Mark 3.7-12

Mark 3.7-12

* Jesus is followed by great multitudes from all over Israel
-"a great multitude" (v. 7)
-"a great number of people" (v. 8)
-"the crowd" (v. 9)
-"he had healed many" (v. 10)
-"all those who had afflictions pressed around him" (v. 10)
* Jesus is recognized as the Son of God by the unclean spirits
* Jesus has power to heal and to heal many
* Jesus' presence is powerful: the unclean spirits fall down before him
* Jesus will not let the unclean spirits tell who he is

-There is a distinction between his disciples and the crowd (vv. 7, 9)
