Healing a Demoniac

Jesus and the four fishermen whom he had called came into Capernaum.

That Sabbath, Jesus entered into the synagogue and began teaching. The people there were astonished at this teaching, for he taught them with authority, not like the scribes taught.

While Jesus was teaching, a man with a wicked, unclean spirit entered the synagogue and cried out with a loud voice:

Ah! What have we to do with you, Jesus you Nazarene, have you come to destroy us? I know who you are; you’re the Holy One of God.

Jesus rebuked the within the man's body and told him not to say any more.

Jesus instructed the demon to come out of the man. The threw the man down and caused him to have convulsions and to cry with a loud voice.

But the demon departed as Jesus had commanded, leaving the man unhurt.

Everyone was amazed. They began to ask each other questions:

Who is this? What is this new teaching? With authority and power he commands even the unclean spirits to come out of a man and they obey him!

The news of this immediately spread. Rumors started concerning Jesus.

Everywhere in the region of Galilee and the outlying areas they were talking about Jesus.
