- 'they glorified God, who had given such authority to human beings' is an interesting response!

- Oh, the context makes the new wineskins/cloak analogy clearer. It's about the disciples retaining their joy (and living in a new way) while the bridegroom is with them.

- Jesus not minding about their laughing; the (there is a word for this, but I forget it) mirroring of the 'unclean' woman with the daughter of a synagogue leader - they paint such a clear and lovely picture of Jesus and God and who they are.

- I am amazed at how much healing there is in these chapters. I don't know whether it's the writer grouping all the healings together rather than Jesus actually healing many people per day, but it's just wonderful to see this side of him - the healer, the miracle worker.

- 'proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness' Shouldn't it (can it) be like that now?

- He has compassion for the crowds and worries that there are not enough people to take care of/proclaim good news to all of them.
