What did it look like when people followed Jesus? 

New Testament: Matt 4.25

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 4 on January 4, In the year of our Lord Christ 2023

By Don Ruhl 

As Jesus began his ministry, he taught everywhere and he performed all kinds of miracles, especially those of healing people. The news spread and people started following him from many places: 

Great multitudes followed Him—from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.

– Matthew 4.25 

From all over the land of Israel, and even from the other side of the Jordan River, people found him and then followed him. 

What did that look like? There had to be thousands of people traveling with him wherever he went. Those days must have been very exciting days.
