耶穌走遍加利利,在各會堂裏教訓人,傳天國的福音,醫治百姓各樣的病症。  人把一切害病的,就是害各樣疾病、各樣疼痛的和被鬼附的、癲癇的、癱瘓的,都帶了來,耶穌就治好了他們。  當下,有許多人從加利利、低加坡里、耶路撒冷、猶太、約旦河外來跟著衪。And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. Great multitudes followed Him—from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan. (Matt 4:23-25)

Willing to forsake all things to follow Him

他們就立刻捨了網,跟從了衪 他們立刻捨了船,別了父親,跟從了耶穌。 They immediately left their nets and followed Him. … and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him. (Matt 4:20, 22)

耶穌看見馬太就對他說:「你跟從我來。」他就起來跟從了耶穌。 As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “Follow Me.” So he arose and followed Him(Matt 9:9)
