Jesus called the twelve apostles together and gave them power and authority over every demon and power and authority to cure diseases.
He sent them to spread the message about the kingdom of God and to cure the sick.
He told them, "Don't take anything along on the trip. Don't take a walking stick, traveling bag, any food, money, or a change of clothes.
When you go into a home, stay there until you're ready to leave.
If people don't welcome you, leave that city, and shake its dust off your feet as a warning to them."
The apostles went from village to village, told the Good News, and cured the sick everywhere.
