Let's go to Galilee Matthew 4:12
Keyword: The Chronological order of the life of Our Christ
Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, He departed into Galilee; Matthew 4:12 ACP/KJV
Up until now, most of the heavy lifting had been done by John, for it was John's job to pave the way for the Lord. It was John's job to pretty much introduce Jesus as the Christ. Now it was time for John to not only decrease but to be removed from the scene, as to not confuse things or to cause people to try and compare John to Jesus.
In Mark we read: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Mark 1:14&15 ACP/KJV
Literally: And after the delivering up of John, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of the reign of God, and saying--`Fulfilled hath been the time, and the reign of God hath come nigh, reform ye, and believe in the good news.'(Mark 1:14&15 Young's Literal Translation)
So, while John the Baptist had laid the ground work and introduced Jesus as the Christ, now we see Jesus, not procrastinating, not hemming and hawing, but coming straight out and telling people that The reign of God is on earth, stop fooling around and listen to what I have to say and believe on Me.
In Luke we read it as: And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of Him through all the region round about. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified of/by all. Luke 4:14&15 ACP/KJV
Here is the first time we read of Jesus being somewhere, not by walking or taking a ride on an animal, but instead being delivered someplace as, not by, *but as the Spirit. This literally means that one minute He was at the river and the next He was in Galilee. In other words, He suddenly appeared in Galilee, probably at the front of the Synagogue while the service was going on. He appeared and suddenly started preaching. Imagine, if you will, you are at your Sunday service at church, when suddenly, right out of the blue, a man appears on or just in front of the altar, and starts preaching "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel." Think maybe He would have your attention?
Well, Jesus obviously had their attention, for we read: "being glorified of/by all." I have it as of/by because the Greek word translated 'of' in the KJV is, hupo, pronounced hoop-o' and it can also mean 'by'. I feel that 'by' fits better today. Also, the word 'of' in 1611 meant, more often than not, 'by'. An example would be: "the king was worshiped of the people."
As we study the Life of Jesus we are seeing how well ordered, planned and executed His life was. We too, as we go about our daily lives, should avoid the pitfall of short cuts. We too should be thinking that in order to achieve our goal of life eternal with the Lord, we should order our lives in the way God has shown us through the example of Himself.
* God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
Lord give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart attuned to Your word.
Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
