 Jesus’ Daily Activities

Jesus traveled throughout the region of Galilee, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And He healed every kind of disease and illness. News about Him spread as far as Syria, and people soon began bringing to Him all who were sick. And whatever their sickness or disease, or if they were demon-possessed or epileptic or paralyzed—He healed them all. Large crowds followed Him wherever He went—people from Galilee, the Ten Towns, Jerusalem, from all over Judea, and from east of the Jordan River. Matthew 4:23-25 (NLT), see also Mark 1:35-39; Luke 4:42-44. 

During Jesus’ public ministry while on earth, Jesus spent His time teaching, preaching, and healing large crowds of people. Teaching, preaching and healing were the three main aspects of Jesus' ministry. Jesus soon developed a large following and commanding preaching ministry.  He regularly spoke in the synagogues. Synagogues served as a religious gathering place on the Sabbath and as a school during the week.

Jesus preached the Good News (Gospel) to everyone. The Good News is that the Kingdom of God has come in the Person of Jesus and that God loves us (Mark 1:14-15; John 3:16).  Jesus' Good News offers everyone freedom from sin, blessed hope, peace in heart, bodily healing and eternal life with God.  To claim all these Good News benefits, we simply have to follow Jesus!
