Bible: Luke 9:37-45

Healing a Boy with an Unclean Spirit

9:37 Now on 1  the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, a large crowd met him. 9:38 Then 2  a man from the crowd cried out, 3 Teacher, I beg you to look at 4  my son – he is my only child! 9:39 A 5  spirit seizes him, and he suddenly screams; 6  it throws him into convulsions 7  and causes him to foam at the mouth. It hardly ever leaves him alone, torturing 8  him severely. 9:40 I 9  begged 10  your disciples to cast it out, but 11  they could not do so.” 12  9:41 Jesus answered, 13 You 14  unbelieving 15  and perverse generation! How much longer 16  must I be with you and endure 17  you? 18  Bring your son here.” 9:42 As 19  the boy 20  was approaching, the demon threw him to the ground 21  and shook him with convulsions. 22  But Jesus rebuked 23  the unclean 24  spirit, healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. 9:43 Then 25  they were all astonished at the mighty power 26  of God.

Another Prediction of Jesus’ Suffering

But while the entire crowd 27  was amazed at everything Jesus 28  was doing, he said to his disciples, 9:44 Take these words to heart, 29  for the Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men.” 30  9:45 But they did not understand this statement; its meaning 31  had been concealed 32  from them, so that they could not grasp it. Yet 33  they were afraid to ask him about this statement.
