|| Matthew 14:34-36
MK6:53 Now when they had finally made the crossing they arrived in the land of Gennesaret and beached there. MK6:54 When they left the boat instantly all the people recognized Jesus. MK6:55 So they all ran throughout the countryside and gathered up those sick in their beds and brought them to where Jesus was reported to be. MK6:56 And no matter what village or city or rural area Jesus entered, the people laid their sick in the path and begged him that they might just touch the fringe of his garment. Now every person who touched Jesus was cured.
