  • James Robinson, Jr. on Mark 9 - 2 years ago
    It seems as if Christ scolded his disciples when they couldn't cast out the demon. But then he tells them that this kind only comes out by prayer and fasting. So why did he scold them?

    Hi James , personally I don't believe that Jesus was scolding his disciples , read v 22&23 in particular , Jesus wasn't talking to his disciples , he was talking to the crowd . I think Jesus was reprimanding them gently because they didn't believe that his disciples could cure the boy , they wanted Jesus to do it . They believed he could do it . When you read Matthew you will read how many times Jesus says something along the lines of : your faith has healed you or as you believe so shall it be to you . This is just my opinion .

    Sasha In the context I absolutely agree, Jesus Christ was always operating correct doctrine and reproof and instruction for those have ears to hear. When he raised lazarus from the dead same thing, the only one who believed he could do it was Himself.
