Many People Followed Jesus

Of course, not always for the best of reasons. Some came out of curiosity. Some came to see what Jesus could do for them. But they came; and none the worse for coming.

Mark 3:7-19; Matthew 12:15-21; Luke 6:12-16

  • Unclean spirits declared Jesus to be the Son of God.
  • Isaiah 42:1-4. Fulfilled. Would you have known it were it not explained here?
  • Jesus had many disciples; but he only chose 12 to be his apostles. Is this choice fair? Would anyone fault Jesus for his election?
  • Compare the lists. It appears that some men were known by more than one name.
  • Jesus empowered them to preach and to heal.
