Jesus Begins to Preach

Scripture

Matthew 4:12-17

Commentary

Jesus begins to preach following His baptism and temptation.  It is no coincidence that His ministry does not overlap that of John the Baptist as he begins shortly after John is thrown into prison.  John's mission was to prepare the way for Jesus and as Jesus is ready to begin His ministry, John's mission is concluded. 

It is also not a coincidence that Jesus' message is the same of John's.  It is a message of repentance that is applicable for all ministries and all situations.  Jesus would preach the message in a different way than John but it was still the same message, just in a different form.
