Jesus Developed Followers Before Leaders

We don't really know a great deal about the first 30 years of Jesus', though we can speculate. Historically, we do know a great deal about the culture, the people, their habits, etc.

But have you ever wondered why there was such a long period of time for him to be revealed for who he was? Was it for him to become an appropriate age? Yes, I'm sure, but can't help but believe it was also for him to be developed as a follower before he became a leader. And only then he begin developing his own followers. Not leaders, that would come later, but followers. Jesus spent 3 years developing followers and at times had hundreds, maybe thousands of people following him.

He taught these men, made in the image of God, to be more
