“Jesus had cured
All who had diseases
Pressed upon him
To touch him.”
πολλοὺς γὰρ ἐθεράπευσεν, ὥστε ἐπιπίπτειν αὐτῷ ἵνα αὐτοῦ ἅψωνται ὅσοι εἶχον μάστιγας.
This is another unique summary by Mark, where traces can be found in the other synoptic gospels. Mark said that Jesus had cured many people (πολλοὺς γὰρ ἐθεράπευσεν). Thus, everyone pressed or crushed around him (ὥστε ἐπιπίπτειν αὐτῷ). All the people with diseases hoped to touch him (ἵνα αὐτοῦ ἅψωνται ὅσοι εἶχον μάστιγας). They all wanted to be healed of their illness.
