1/17/15 Rest Before Beginning

Mary gathers her family together, now including Jesus’ disciples, and they start on their journey to Capernaum.  Jesus’s brothers love Him, but do not believe He is the Messiah yet.  They walk together on one side of their mother, and Jesus and His disciples walk together on her other side.  Jesus is always teaching, revealing God’s Truth as they go along.  They stay in Capernaum, a little fishing village on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, for only a few days.  It is a nice place to rest before Jesus begins His public ministry.  “Will you all go with Me to Jerusalem for the Passover?”  Jesus asks all in His company.  “We will,” they answer, and they set off for Jerusalem.
