theWord: Jesus had been preaching, teaching and healing the sick in various cities; we pick up the narrative in Luke 4: 42, 43: ‘Now when it was day, He departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowd sought Him and came to Him, and tried to keep Him from leaving them, but He said to them,’ “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.” Jesus announced the rule of God through His person, in dealing with sin, in distributing the Spirit, as He mediates blessing from God’s side, and in reigning with His followers according to the Old Testament promise.
