Jesus Heals Many & Jesus Preaches in Synagogues

Luke 4:338–44

Find a quiet place, alone and apart from distractions. Be comfortably alert, still, and at peace. Say the Lord’s Prayer. Sing or cant the Jesus Prayer. Pray for family, friends, neighbors, and yourself. Slowly and carefully read the passage of Scripture.

1.              Leaving the synagogue in Capernaum, Jesus visits the home of Simon (Peter) to find that his mother is very ill.

2.              She is miraculously healed so much so that she begins to “serve them.”

3.              When the Sabbath Day closed, about 6pm Saturday evening, people showed up at Simon’s home who were sick with various diseases.

4.              Jesus lays His hands on them and every one of them were healed.

5.              In additions, others who had indwelling demons came to Him and the demons were cast out. The demons knew who Jesus was, “the Son of God.” Jesus did not accept their testimony and did not allow them to speak.

6.              Awaking the next day, a Sunday, Jesus left all and walked into a quiet place, but people searched for Him, found Him, and would not let Him alone.

7.              Jesus, however, took leave of them stating that He must be about the work of preaching “the good news of the kingdom of God” to others.

8.              Jesus continues then to preach in other synagogues.
