Thus Jesus turned from the fame that was his in Capenaum and stretched his ministry to other areas in Galilee. He considered himself to be bound by a obligation to do so. He said. "I must preachto the other towns also".
Christ recognized his mission as Messiah to state publicly the good news that God had honored his covenant promises and had sent Messiah to the world. The fact that Christ recognized an obligation to preach was evidence that he had been commissioned to preach, and God's commission conveyed authority on the One commissioned.
