The Small Stuff

Jesus and his disciples left from there and began a journey through Galilee,
but he did not wish anyone to know about it.
He was teaching his disciples and telling them,
“The Son of Man is to be handed over to men
and they will kill him,
and three days after his death the Son of Man will rise.”

Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza,
Susanna, and many others
who provided for them out of their resources. Luke 8:1-3
