Jesus was now about to begin His ministry. The day after He was baptized, John again identified Him as the Lamb of God (Jn. 1:35) and, in response, two of John’s disciples became disciples of Jesus. Soon Jesus and His small band of disciples began walking through the towns and cities of Israel, the Decapolis, and even into the region of Tyre and Sidon. The ministry of Jesus was primarily in small villages. People did not live “in the country” as they do today in a Western rural setting, but rather, rural people lived in small villages.
