What does Mark 4:34 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Mark 4:34

But without a parable spake he not unto them
For the above reason, as well as for the accomplishment of Scripture; (See Gill on Matthew 13:34), (See Gill on Matthew 13:35).

And when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples:
after they returned with him from the sea side, to the house in Capernaum, where he usually was when there; see ( Matthew 13:36 ) . The multitude being dismissed, he unfolded and explained all these parables to his disciples, and led them into a large knowledge of himself, and the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven; whereby they were furnished for the work he had called them to, and designed them for.
