Luke 4:31-44 - Jesus Teaches And Heals Many In Capernaum

31 Then Jesus went down to Capernaum, a city in Galilee, and began teaching the people on Sabbath days. 32 They were utterly amazed at what he taught, because his message was spoken with authority. 33 In the synagogue was a man who had a demon. He screamed with a loud voice, 34 "Oh, no! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are the Holy One of God!"

35 But Jesus rebuked him. "Be quiet," he said, "and come out of him!" At this, the demon threw the man down in the middle of the synagogue and came out of him without hurting him. 36 Overwhelmed with amazement, they all kept saying to one another, "What kind of statement is this? because with authority and power he gives orders to unclean spirits, and they come out!" 37 So news about him spread to every place in the surrounding region.

38 Then Jesus got up to leave the synagogue and went into Simon's house. Now Simon's mother-in-law was sick with a high fever, so they asked Jesus about her. 39 He bent over her, rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began serving them.

40 When the sun was setting, everyone who had any friends suffering from various diseases brought them to him. He placed his hands on each of them and began healing them. 41 Even demons came out of many people, screaming, "You are the Son of God!" But Jesus rebuked them and ordered them not to speak, because they knew he was the Messiah.

42 At daybreak he left and went to a deserted place, while the crowds kept looking for him. When they came to him, they tried to keep him from leaving them. 43 But he told them, "I have to proclaim the good news about the kingdom of God in other cities, because I was sent to do that also." 44 So he continued to preach in the synagogues of Galilee.
