John Wesley's notes on the Gospel


Mark 8:1-10a
1 Mt 15:32.  

8 So they did eat - This miracle was intended to demonstrate, that Christ was the true bread which cometh down from heaven; for he who was almighty to create bread without means to support natural life, could not want power to create bread without means to support spiritual life. And this heavenly bread we stand so much in need of every moment, that we ought to be always praying, Lord, evermore give us this bread.  

Gospel Parallel Matthew xv. 32-39
32 They continue with me now three days - It was now the third day since they came. Mark 8:1.  

36 He gave thanks, or blessed the food - That is, he praised God for it, and prayed for a blessing upon it.
