After Jesus sent the crowd away, he got into the boat with his disciples and went to an area called Magadan.

After traveling along the Sea of Galilee, Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down. Another huge crowd gathered around him and he healed many who suffered from various ailments. The crowd was amazed and praised God.

But people followed them on foot. By the time Jesus and the disciples reached the shore, a huge crowd had gathered and was waiting for them. Jesus had compassion on them, taught them about the Kingdom of God and healed the sick.

Yesterday’s selection concluded with Jesus raising a little girl from the dead. As he moved on from there, here’s what happened next:
