Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Mark 1:12

(6) And immediately the Spirit (i) driveth him into the wilderness.

(6) Christ being tempted overcomes.

(i) "Driveth" here does not refer to something violent and forcible: but the divine power clothes Christ (who had lived until this time as a private man) with a new person, and prepares him for the battle that was at hand, and for his ministry.

the Spirit:

Matthew 4:1-11 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. ... Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
Luke 4:1-4 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, ... And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Or, "sendeth him forth," εκβαλλει [Strong's G1544], αυτον. The expression does not necessarily imply any violence; but seems to intimate the energy of that impulse on our Lord, by which he was inwardly constrained to retire from society.
