The evangelist having, in the foregoing chapters, given us a specimen of our Lord’s preaching, proceeds now to give some instances of the miracles he wrought, which prove him a Teacher come from God, and the great Healer of a diseased world. In this chapter we have, I. Christ’s cleansing of a leper, Matt. 8:1-4. II. His curing a palsy and fever, Matt. 8:5-18. III. His communing with two that were disposed to follow him, Matt. 8:19-22. IV. His controlling the tempest, Matt. 8:23-27. V. His casting out devils, Matt. 8:28-34.
