Mark

Mark 10:46-52
46 Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

48 Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called.

Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.”

50 And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus.

51 So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?”

The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.”

52 Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.


Jesus to blind Bartimaeus: “What do you want Me to do for you?”

Blind Bartimaeus: “Rabbi / Rabboni, my Master, I want to see / let me regain my sight.”

Jesus: “Go, your faith and confident trust in My power has healed you / has made you well.”

Immediately Bartimaeus received his sight / regained his sight and followed Jesus / began following Jesus along the road.

Mark 6:7-13
7 And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits. 8 He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bag, no bread, no copper in their money belts— 9 but to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics.

10 Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, 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. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

12 So they went out and preached that people should repent. 13 And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.


The Twelve / The twelve disciples went out and preached that people should repent, think differently, recognize sin, turn away from it, and live changed lives.

They drove out / cast out many demons and anointed many sick people / many who were sick with oil and healed them.

Mark 5:25-34
25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. 28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”

29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”

31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”

32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”


A woman was in the crowd who had been subject to bleeding / was suffering from a hemorrhage for 12 years. She had suffered a great deal / endured much suffering under the care of many doctors / at the hands of many physicians. She had spent all that she had, yet instead of getting better / and was not helped at all, but instead she grew worse / had become worse.

When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind Him in the crowd and touched His cloak / outer robe, because she thought, “If I just touch His clothes / If I just touch His clothing, I will be healed / I will get well.”

Immediately her bleeding / her flow of blood stopped / was dried up and she felt in her body and knew without any doubt that she was freed from her suffering / healed of her suffering.

Jesus to her: “Daughter, your faith, your personal trust and confidence in Me has healed you / has restored you to health. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering / be permanently healed from your suffering.”

Mark 3:13-19
13 And He went up on the mountain and called to Him those He Himself wanted.
