    In describing the pity that Jesus felt for the crowds, Matthew uses a distinctive Greek term that means, literally, "his guts were moved." God's compassion for the world is a gut-wrenching, visceral desire to address human suffering. The instrument that Jesus chooses to express this compassion are the twelve apostles, prototypes of the Church.
