The Later Galilean Ministry (Mark 3:7–6:13)
Solitude in an Insane World
Mark 3:7–12

   What message can we discover in this text beyond the description of Jesus becoming overwhelmed by the size and demand of the needy near-mob of people who were seeking his attention night and day. The numbers are not stated here, but Mark later gives a figure: “44 The number of the men who had eaten was five thousand” (Mar.6:44). That’s just the number of men! I can’t imagine the impossibility of functioning at all in this context. However, today we will see that this crowd, though formidable, did not deter Jesus from His methods and mission. There is both a reaction that we can have from this text today and a life-instructions as well.
