The ministry of Jess recorded in Matthew 4 through 6, which tells what happened between his baptism and his transfiguration, took place mostly in Galilee. There he told nineteen of his thirty-two parables and did twenty-five of his thirty-three recorded miracles. He was several miles form Jerusalem, but he was never far from the cross.
