They were doubtless there for the purpose of worship. It does not mean that they were there constantly, but at the regular periods of worship.

In the presence of the great multitudes who came up to worship, they had an opportunity of making known the doctrines of Jesus, and of confirming them by miracles, the reality of which could not be denied, and which could not be resisted, as proofs that Jesus was the Messiah.
