The fame hereof
The news about Him spread
throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them.
At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the news about Jesus,
But he went out and began to
proclaim it freely and to spread the news around, to such an extent that Jesus could no longer publicly enter a city, but stayed out in unpopulated areas; and they were coming to Him from everywhere.
And King Herod heard of it, for His name had become well known; and people were saying, “ John the Baptist has risen from the dead, and that is why these miraculous powers are at work in Him.”
For the king
knows about these matters, and I speak to him also with confidence, since I am persuaded that none of these things escape his notice; for this has not been done in a corner.
