Geneva Notes/Commentary on Mark 1:12-20

From the Geneva Notes on Mark 1:12-20

Mr 1:12
1:12 {6} And immediately the Spirit {i} driveth him into the
wilderness.

(6) Christ being tempted overcomes.
(i) "Driveth" here does not refer to something violent and
forcible: but the divine power clothes Christ (who had
lived until this time as a private man) with a new
person, and prepares him for the battle that was at
hand, and for his ministry.

Mr 1:14
1:14 {7} Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into
Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

(7) After John is taken Christ shows himself more fully.

Mr 1:16
1:16 {8} Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon
and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they
were fishers.

(8) The calling of Simon and Andrew.

Mr 1:19
1:19 {9} And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw
James the [son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also
were in the ship mending their nets.

(9) The calling of James and John.
