Bible: Mark 1:21-28

Jesus’ Authority

1:21 Then 1  they went to Capernaum. 2  When the Sabbath came, 3  Jesus 4  went into the synagogue 5  and began to teach. 1:22 The people there 6  were amazed by his teaching, because he taught them like one who had authority, 7  not like the experts in the law. 8  1:23 Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit, 9  and he cried out, 10  1:24 Leave us alone, 11  Jesus the Nazarene! Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are – the Holy One 12  of God! 1:25 But 13  Jesus rebuked him: 14  “Silence! Come out of him! 15  1:26 After throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him. 1:27 They were all amazed so that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He even commands the unclean spirits and they obey him.” 1:28 So 16  the news about him spread quickly throughout all the region around Galilee.
