NOT JUST TWELVE

I noticed again that Jesus had multitudes, crowds that gathered to hear Him speak, to watch as He healed. They were enamored with His teaching because it was unlike that of the Scribes and Pharisees. How they were able to hear Him sufficiently to become followers is in itself one amazing fact. Yet our text,Continue reading “NOT JUST TWELVE”
