Lawrence From Uae's comment on 2014-11-21 06:51:56:

In my view, Jesus mission is not just about healing but also preaching. If He stays in one region just to heal many people then how can anyone else in another region be known to them the good news. Jesus dont focus on carnal things but He also extends His teaching in spiritual realm so that nothing is hidden.
