Most quality learning involves doing.  You wouldn’t want a surgeon who had been trained in the classroom, but had never actually performed an operation.  Jesus’ training of His disciples involved instruction, observation (of His ministry as the Great Physician), and then He sent them out to carry on His work.

As His ministry in Galilee is coming to a close, Jesus commissions His disciples to extend His ministry by going throughout the region preaching the gospel and healing the sick.  He instructs them to travel light and warns them that they will face rejection from some of their hearers.  While there are some aspects of their mission which are unique, there are many ongoing principles which apply to His followers today.
