And Jesus was Amazed

Maybe it just me? Perhaps I’m reading more into than I should? I know I’ve read in the bible where the people were amazed at Jesus for one reason or another. Amazement seems to imply to be astonished or surprised. That’s how I’ve thought of being amazed. It’s being in a sense of ‘Wow.’ 

So to read where Jesus was amazed kinda caught me by surprise. He is so aware of what goes on, yet He wondered or marveled in this instance. I have read the verse many times. For some reason it struck a little different. Here is the verse and the reason Jesus was amazed. 

“And He wondered at their unbelief. And He was going around the villages teaching.” Mark‬ ‭6:6‬ ‭NASB‬‬

“He was amazed at their lack of faith. Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭6:6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

I would say Jesus is still amazed and for the same reason. 

Until next time,
