This is a commentary on Matthew 8-9; Mark 2-4; and Luke 7. These are the texts for Lesson 9 in the Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families manual. In these six chapters, we see how the three synoptic gospels portrayed Jesus’ early ministry of teaching, healing, and forming His disciples for their future roles as His witnesses and the foundation of His Church. We shall find the future apostles to be very human at this stage. We may see ourselves in them. We shall also find Jesus immersed in the adversities of the human condition. It will be useful for us to watch how He taught, how He dealt with criticism and adversity, how He dealt with people. He confronted illness, death, storm, and accusations that He was crazy or possessed by Satan himself.

We all need to confront great adversities almost every day. How we do that is a measure of whether we follow His counsel to come, follow Him.

By this time in His ministry, great throngs of people followed Him everywhere He went. Some came to learn. Some came to be healed. Some came to see a spectacle. Some came out of casual curiosity—seemingly by chance. No one who met Him or encountered Him left unchanged. He was the peak of humanity and anyone who met Him was pushed to choose one way or another. Like a mountain top dividing the rain on a continental divide, the water takes one course or another after meeting it. We have an opportunity to meet Him in our studies this week. These are very interesting chapters that are surprisingly relevant today. pp.36
