Mark chapter 3

Jesus teaches from a boat

Verses 6-12

This was a very large crowd. Many people had travelled for several days to be there. They wanted Jesus to help them.

Many people in the crowd were ill. They wanted to touch Jesus. They believed that they would then become well.

Jesus taught the people from the boat. The crowd stayed on the shore (Mark 4:1).

There were also people who had bad *spirits in the crowd. These *spirits were from *Satan. They knew who Jesus was. But Jesus always told them that they must be quiet. God is completely good. And *Satan is completely bad. So Jesus would not listen to the words that those bad *spirits caused people to say. He did not even want them to say true things about him. God, and not the bad *spirits, would show people who Jesus was.
