SPECIAL TRAINING OF THE TWELVE
May 4 7.1 The apostles met with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. Jesus said, “Come retreat to a desert place and rest awhile.” For so many people were coming and going, they didn’t even have time to eat. They went by boat to their destination, Bethsaida Julias. But many saw them as they left, ran from the cities and arrived ahead of them.
7.2 Then Jesus landed on the other side of the sea of Galilee. The Jewish Passover was near, so a huge crowd followed him because they saw his healing of the sick. He had compassion on them, for they were like sheep without shepherd.1 He climbed the mountain, sat with his disciples, and taught many things about the kingdom of God and healed their sick.2
