Bible: Luke 4:31-44

Ministry in Capernaum

4:31 So 1  he went down to Capernaum, 2  a town 3  in Galilee, and on the Sabbath he began to teach the people. 4  4:32 They 5  were amazed 6  at his teaching, because he spoke 7  with authority. 8 

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
