One of those days Jesus went out to a mountianside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.|
When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles...
He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by evil spirits were cured, and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.
