He called the twelve disciples together and sent them out two by two. He gave them authority over the evil spirits
and ordered them, "Don't take anything with you on the trip except a walking stick - no bread, no beggar's bag, no money in your pockets.
Wear sandals, but don't carry an extra shirt."
He also told them, "Wherever you are welcomed, stay in the same house until you leave that place.
If you come to a town where people do not welcome you or will not listen to you, leave it and shake the dust off your feet. That will be a warning to them!" 1
So they went out and preached that people should turn away from their sins.
They drove out many demons, and rubbed olive oil on many sick people and healed them. 2
