Mark 3:7-9 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Massive Crowds Follow Jesus

Once again Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the lakeside, but a massive crowd of people followed him from all around the provinces of Galilee and southern Israel. Vast crowds came from Jerusalem, Idumea,[a] beyond the Jordan, and from Lebanon.[b] Large numbers of people swarmed in from everywhere when they heard of him and his wonderful works.

The crowd pressed so closely to Jesus that he instructed his disciples to bring him a small boat to get into and keep from being crushed by the crowd.


  1. Mark 3:8 Or “Edom.” Idumea was the region south of Beersheba, south and west of the Dead Sea, a territory of ancient Israel.
  2. Mark 3:8 Or “Tyre and Sidon,” which are in modern-day Lebanon.
