“And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;”
King James Version (KJV)
14:35 #Mark 6:45|.
Mt 14:35 And brought unto him all that were diseased. His fame was so well known in that region that his coming at once caused a commotion. In a country where there are no skilled physicians and little known of sanitary laws, there is great need of a Healer. Geikie, who traveled through this same region with a medical friend, says that crowds would gather with their sick as soon as they knew there was a physician. Hence the importance of medical missions.
