Mark 3:7-9

Context
Crowds by the Sea

3:7 Then 1  Jesus went away with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him. 2  And from Judea, 3:8 Jerusalem, 3  Idumea, beyond the Jordan River, 4  and around Tyre 5  and Sidon 6  a great multitude came to him when they heard about the things he had done. 3:9 Because of the crowd, he told his disciples to have a small boat ready for him so the crowd 7  would not press toward him.

1 tn Grk “And.” Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.
