Mark 6 is the where world views collide and Jesus faces familiar faces who totally doubt the evidence they see!
6 Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. 2 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.
27 The people were all so AMAZED ( ethambethesan – marveled 6:6, were awed ) ( wow – story / teaching)
that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

21 When his family[b] heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”
And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebul! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons.”
38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”
41 They were terrified and asked each other, “WHO IS THIS Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
