After spending two or three days with one group of twelve evangelists, Jesus would move on to join another group,
being informed as to the whereabouts and movements of all these workers by David's messengers. This being their first tour, the women remained much of
the time with Jesus. Through the messenger service each of these groups was kept fully informed concerning the progress of the tour, and the receipt of
news from other groups was always a source of encouragement to these scattered and separated workers.
150:6.3 Before their separation it had been arranged that the
twelve apostles, together with the evangelists and the women's corps, should assemble at Nazareth to meet the Master on Friday, March 4. Accordingly, about
this time, from all parts of central and southern Galilee these
various groups of apostles and evangelists began moving toward Nazareth. By midafternoon, Andrew and Peter, the last to arrive, had reached the encampment prepared by the early arrivals and situated on the highlands to the
north of the city. And this was the first time Jesus had visited Nazareth since the beginning of his public ministry.
