Mt. 12:15-21; Mk. 3:7-12
The northern end of the Sea of Galilee was about seventy-five miles from Jerusalem. When Jesus saw that His life was in danger, He left Judea and went back to this area. He was safe around the sea because of the many different jurisdictions that bordered it.
A multitude of sick and cripple people from great distances followed Jesus to Galilee and He healed all of them.
