It’s really interesting, the focus of Jesus’ ministry wasn’t to be “itinerant,” the focus of Jesus’ ministry was creating disciples.
Everywhere He went, it was with Peter/James/John and the rest of the 12 — they were the focus, not the crowds.
But all over the world today, we are taught by church that being “itinerant” is the zenith of ministry, but Jesus’ commission still stands, “Make disciples,” not “build a ministry.”
Imagine if all these leaders spent more time investing in a handful rather than preaching to crowds all the time.
I never said crowds were bad, Jesus had them, but He was more intentional with His 12 than He was with crowds. Crowds were the byproduct, not the focus. The crowds sought after Him, but He sought after the few disciples.
