Mark 1:36 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 1:36

And Simon, and they that were with him
Peter, and his brother Andrew, together with James and John,

followed after him;
some time after he was gone; for he privately withdrew from them, so that they might not be aware when he went, nor apprized of his departure, for some considerable time; which when they were, they set out, in diligent search, and eager pursuit after him, until they found him.

37 They found him and said, "Everybody's looking for you."
