They left and went on through Galilee, Jesus preaching in the synagogues and driving out demons. But it was not long before the crowds grew too big and they could no longer move about freely. Peter and Andrew assessed the situation one day, themselves astonished by the turn of events. 
Peter:  I blame that leper – d’you remember? 
Andrew: Yes, the one who came right up to us and threw himself down in front of Jesus. I can understand him being desperate, when you’re sick like that no one wants to know you anymore.

Peter: Quite right too! You don’t want a warm embrace from someone like that.  He’d probably leave his fingers all over you. Which is why we all ran a mile the moment he leapt out of the bushes at Jesus.
