2. Carrying Out His Fourfold Commission --
Teaching, Casting Out Demons,
Healing, and Preaching
31 And He acame down to bCapernaum, a city of Galilee. And He ctaught them on the dSabbath.
32 And they were aastounded at His teaching, because His word was with 1bauthority.
33 And in the synagogue there was a man who had a 1aspirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice,
34 1Ah! 2aWhat do we have to do with You, Jesus, bNazarene? Have You come to destroy us? I cknow who You are -- the dHoly One of God.
35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Be aquiet and come out from him. And throwing him down in the midst, the demon came out from him without harming him at all.
36 And amazement came upon all, and they spoke to one another, saying, What is this word? For with 1aauthority and bpower He orders the unclean spirits, and they come out.
37 And 1areports went out concerning Him into every place of the surrounding region.
38 And He rose up and went from the synagogue and aentered into the house of Simon. And 1Simon's mother-in-law was 2suffering with a high 3fever, and they asked Him concerning her.
39 And standing over her, He arebuked the fever, and it left her. And she instantly rose up and served them.
40 And when the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and He alaid His hands on each one of them and healed them.
41 And demons also came out from many, acrying out and saying, You are the bSon of God! And He rebuked them and would cnot allow them to speak, because they knew that He was the dChrist.
42 And when aday came, He departed and went into a bdeserted place. And the crowds csought Him, and they came up to Him and tried to hold on to Him so that He would not go away from them.
43 But He said to them, I must 1aannounce the gospel of the 2kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for 3this I was sent.
44 And He 1preached in the asynagogues of 2Judea.
