The events of the previous chapter took place in Capernaum (the healing of the centurion's servant) and in Nain. This chapter begins with the description of His "tour of cities". Soon after the dinner at Simon's house, Jesus began to travel (on foot) from one city and village to another, in order to proclaim and preach the Kingdom of God to them. He was accompanied by His twelve apostles, as well as some others we will consider later.
When we read that He was both proclaiming and preaching, we may well say, "Oh, He was preaching and preaching," but two different words are used here. The word translated as "proclaiming" is kēryssō
Do you want a better life? Do you want peace and freedom for yourself and your loved ones? Turn to the words of Jesus, and simply obey. You will be so glad you did.
