Unit II, "Jesus and Calls in His Ministry," presents four sessions about Jesus' ministry. Luke emphasizes Jesus' call to proclamation and ministry and identifies Jesus as one who calls followers. Mark speaks to Jesus' call to a ministry of healing. John gives us a look at Jesus' call as the intercessor for those who follow him.
