Feb 20 5.8 Jesus rose long before daybreak, went to the desert and prayed.1 Simon and the other followers searched for him and on finding him, said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.”

Jesus replied, “Lets visit some neighboring towns to preach Gods kingdom, it is for this purpose2 I came.” Jesus traveled throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of Gods kingdom and healing all kinds of sicknesses and diseases3 among the people. His reputation spread up to Syria. They brought to him those with many diseases and torments; the demon-possessed, the insane, the epileptic and paralytic. He healed them all.4

Huge crowds, from Galilee throughout Judea to beyond Jordan, followed him.
