Bible: Luke 4:31-44
Ministry in Capernaum
4:33 Now 9 in the synagogue 10 there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean 11 demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, 4:34 “Ha! Leave us alone, 12 Jesus the Nazarene! Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are – the Holy One 13 of God.” 4:35 But 14 Jesus rebuked him: 15 “Silence! Come out of him!” 16 Then, after the demon threw the man 17 down in their midst, he came out of him without hurting him. 18 4:36 They 19 were all amazed and began to say 20 to one another, “What’s happening here? 21 For with authority and power 22 he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!” 4:37 So 23 the news 24 about him spread into all areas of the region. 25
4:38 After Jesus left 26 the synagogue, he entered Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus 27 to help her. 28 4:39 So 29 he stood over her, commanded 30 the fever, and it left her. Immediately 31 she got up and began to serve 32 them.
4:40 As the sun was setting, all those who had any relatives 33 sick with various diseases brought them to Jesus. 34 He placed 35 his hands on every one of them and healed them. 4:41 Demons also came out 36 of many, crying out, 37 “You are the Son of God!” 38 But he rebuked 39 them, and would not allow them to speak, 40 because they knew that he was the Christ. 41
4:42 The next morning 42 Jesus 43 departed and went to a deserted place. Yet 44 the crowds were seeking him, and they came to him and tried to keep him from leaving them. 4:43 But Jesus 45 said to them, “I must 46 proclaim the good news of the kingdom 47 of God to the other towns 48 too, for that is what I was sent 49 to do.” 50 4:44 So 51 he continued to preach in the synagogues of Judea. 52
