Luke 4

Jesus Heals Many People
38 After leaving the synagogue that day, Jesus went to Simon's home, where he found Simon's mother-in-law very sick with a high fever. "Please heal her," everyone begged.39 Standing at her bedside, he rebuked the fever, and it left her. And she got up at once and prepared a meal for them.
  40 As the sun went down that evening, people throughout the village brought sick family members to Jesus. No matter what their diseases were, the touch of his hand healed every one.41 Many were possessed by demons; and the demons came out at his command, shouting, "You are the Son of God!" But because they knew he was the Messiah, he rebuked them and refused to let them speak.

Jesus Continues to Preach
42 Early the next morning Jesus went out to an isolated place. The crowds searched everywhere for him, and when they finally found him, they begged him not to leave them.43 But he replied, "I must preach the Good News of the Kingdom of God in other towns, too, because that is why I was sent."44 So he continued to travel around, preaching in synagogues throughout Judea.*
