What would have been included in the apostles' report?

Mark 6:30 (ESV)

30 The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught.

The two sides of their commission (Mark 6:12–13) are reflected in their report (with the majority of the manuscripts we should read “both…and”: καὶκαὶ). They have been allowed to do much to make Jesus’ name known (Mark 6:14). Their attention was focused on their Master, not on themselves.1
