I really don't see what the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Builders Matthew 7:24-27 has to specifically do with the Parable of the New Wineskins? Couldn't it apply to all of Jesus' teachings? Roy Brumback 22:06, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

It's towards the end of the Sermon on the Mount, Matt 5-7. Persumably it applies to the Sermon on the Mount, which was referenced previously by Matt 6:16-18. Seems to me the train of thought is as follows: Mark brings up fasting, the Sermon on the Mount talks about fasting, but there is a dispute about the Sermon on the Mount, does it apply during Jesus' mission or after? ... This topic is discussed in Sermon_on_the_Mount#Interpretation and directly addressed by the Great Commission and Matt 7:24-27. 23:15, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

this sentence[edit]

Mark says many people are now following Jesus, more than the four disciples he has already listed.

My objection is that it is a little vague. From Mark's account, it appears that many people are following Jesus to be cured of their ills, rather than to be disciples or students. This point was made earlier, Mark_6#Healing_of_the_sick_of_Gennesaret. But, I don't really have any ideas on how to improve it currently, maybe it's fine as it is. For now I'll just add a "see also". 23:13, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Origins and history[edit]

I see nothing in the article that tells us who wrote the book, when it was written, what language it was written in, or any other historical aspects of the origins of this Gospel. | Loadmaster (talk) 15:42, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
