Crowds Follow Jesus

3:7-12pp -- Mt 12:15,16; Lk 6:17-19

7 Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the lake, and a large crowd from Galilee followed.1 8 When they heard all he was doing, many people came to him from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, and the regions across the Jordan and around Tyre and Sidon.2 9 Because of the crowd he told his disciples to have a small boat ready for him, to keep the people from crowding him. 10 For he had healed many,3 so that those with diseases were pushing forward to touch him.4 11 Whenever the evila spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, "You are the Son of God."5 12 But he gave them strict orders not to tell who he was.6

The Appointing of the Twelve Apostles

3:16-19pp -- Mt 10:2-4; Lk 6:14-16; Ac 1:13

13 Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him.7 14 He appointed twelve--designating them apostlesb8--that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach 15 and to have authority to drive out demons.9
