Lessons to be Learned from Failed Tests (Mark 6:33–56)

A midterm exam can be helpful in charting student progress in a given course of study. After weeks of lessons, lectures, and assignments, a teacher may use a test to gauge the extent to which the class members are retaining, processing, and synthesizing the material presented to date. The sixth chapter of Mark describes a similar situation for Jesus’ twelve disciples. Up until now they’ve seen, heard, experienced, and been taught a great deal about what it means to follow Christ. It’s now time to measure their progress in understanding. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Mark invites you and I to learn from their failures.
