(Mark 9:35) Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all
“Calling the twelve to him, he sent them out two by two and gave them authority over evil spirits. These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff-no brad, no bag, no money in your belts.
Wear sandals but not an extra tunic. Whenever you enter the house, stay there until you leave that town. And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them.”
They went out and preached that people should repent. But then they show a bit of misunderstanding.
Mark 6:7-12
