Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. 24 News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and he healed them. 25 Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him. ~ Matthew 4:23-25
Literally: Happy; fortunate. Old English: To cover something in blood to cleanse or purify. Christian blessing: Purifying sin and evil by the power of the blood of Christ. Good relationship with God and gifts from God.
