The Christian concept of a ministry encompasses a journey through which someone demonstrates their faith. Jesus’s ministry began with his baptism by John the Baptist and is considered by most scholars to have ended with the Last Supper in Jerusalem. The exact timeframe of the ministry is uncertain, although most estimates place its start between 27–29 CE. Within the three years of Jesus’s ministry, numerous important biblical events occurred across Roman Judaea, with clear details and locations mentioned in the Bible. The overall ministry is split into distinct sections. The Galilean ministry, which comprises three phases, documents Jesus’s journey around Galilee, during which he recruited his first disciples and the twelve apostles. This is followed by the Later Judean ministry and the Later Perean ministry during which Jesus travelled to Jerusalem and was acknowledged as the voice of God. The final ministry in Jerusalem documents Jesus’s arrival in the city and the Last Supper.
