The Ministry Begins- A Zany Looks at Matthew Chapter 4 (Part 2)
What? No way! I thought John was a good guy!
He was, but there were mean people didn't like what he was saying, so some people who thought they were doing good arrested him. In other words, it wasn't his fault.
When Jesus heard this had happened, he left Judea and returned to the place where he grew up, Galilee. He first went to his hometown Nazareth, then moved to Capernaum. From then on he began to preach "Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near."
Hey, that's the same thing that John said!
It sure was, and that was only the beginning of his ministry.
