From Galilee to Syria people heard of the fame of Jesus

Matthew Bible Background

New Testament: Matt 4.24

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 4 on January 4, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

Jesus preached the good news of the kingdom, and healed people of their sicknesses and diseases. The following happened naturally:

Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.

– Matthew 4.24

Jesus began His ministry by showing that He cared for the people, and that He had power over nature and its afflictions. That got the attention of people, and they started talking about Him, and they just kept talking to one another.

When you show people that you care, it will become known.

Questions:

  • Do you care for people?
  • Do you show it?
