Jesus was just beginning His ministry. He had just healed the dead girl and she came back to life. His fame was spreading across the region. At that time, there were no doctors or medical facilities. If you had a disease or fatally wounded you died. Jesus began His ministry by healing people. His fame spread across Israel and Jordan and Syria and Lebanon. People with all sorts of ailments came to Him to be healed. And Jesus didn’t turn away anyone. On the sermon on the mount, there were 5000 men, not counting women and children. Capernaum may have had 500 people. The only thing that Jesus required was faith. He always asked each person do you believe I can do this? In Matthew 9:27-31, 2 blind men came to Him and said, thou Son of David, have mercy on us. Jesus said, do you believe I can do this? They said, yes Lord. Jesus healed them. They were healed by faith in Jesus. This is what moves God, faith. All things are impossible to man, but nothing is impossible to God.
