But he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread the word, so that Jesus* could no longer go into a town openly, but stayed out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter. Mark 1:45

This is pretty early in Mark’s narrative. Still chapter 1. Already Jesus can’t go into town. His healing ministry has made him so popular he’s being mobbed. So Jesus was a country preacher.
