The Rescuer Comes—part 3

Jesus' Ministry

Rescuer Enlists Assistants

Returning full of the Holy Spirit and triumphant over the devil's temptation, Jesus chose 12 ordinary men to teach and to help Him in the ministry. He chose Peter, Andrew, James, John, Phillip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Aphaeus, Thadeus, Simon, and Judas.

 

Rescuer Goes Public

For the next 3 years Jesus began to teach, preach, and heal the people. Crowds of people came to hear Him teach about the Kingdom of God and to be healed. He healed every type of sickness and disease.

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

—Matthew9 :3 NKJV

This amazing person not only healed the sick, but He raised the dead, cast demonic spirits out of people, stopped a huge storm on the Sea of Galilee, walked on the water, and fed thousands of people from one boy's lunch! Jesus was rescuing people from the effects of the evil one.

 

Jesus not only did miracles, but He taught the people how to respond to God and to other people. When He was asked, "What is the greatest commandment," He told them:

‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

—Matthew 22:37-39 NKJV

Jesus came because of love and His message was love.
