31 And (A)He came down to (B)Capernaum, a city of Galilee; and He was teaching them on the Sabbath; 32 and (C)they were amazed at His teaching, because (D)His [a]message was delivered with authority. 33 In the synagogue there was a man [b]possessed by the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, 34 “Leave us alone! [c](E)What business do You have with us, Jesus [d]of (F)Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—(G)the Holy One of God!” 35 But Jesus (H)rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet and come out of him!” And when the demon had thrown him down in the midst of the people, it came out of him without doing him any harm. 36 And amazement came upon them all, and they began talking with one another, saying, “What is [e]this message? For (I)with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!” 37 And (J)the news about Him was spreading into every locality of the surrounding region.

Many Are Healed

38 (K)Then He got up and left the synagogue, and entered Simon’s home. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was (L)suffering from a high fever, and they asked Him [f]to help her. 39 And standing over her, He (M)rebuked the fever, and it left her; and she immediately got up and served them.

40 (N)Now while (O)the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and He was (P)laying His hands on each one of them and (Q)healing them. 41 Demons also were coming out of many, shouting, “You are (R)the Son of God!” And yet He was (S)rebuking them and would (T)not allow them to speak, because they knew that He was the [g]Christ.

42 (U)Now when day came, Jesus left and went to a secluded place; and the crowds were searching for Him, and they came to Him and tried to keep Him from leaving them. 43 But He said to them, “I must also preach the kingdom of God to the other cities, (V)because I was sent for this purpose.”

44 So He kept on preaching in the synagogues (W)of [h]Judea.

Introduction

The first account I [a]composed, (A)Theophilus, about all that Jesus (B)began to do and teach, until the day when He (C)was taken up to heaven, after He (D)had given orders [b]by the Holy Spirit to (E)the apostles whom He had (F)chosen. To [c]these (G)He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of (H)things regarding the kingdom of God. [d]Gathering them together, He commanded them (I)not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for [e](J)what the Father had promised, “Which,” He said, “you heard of from Me; for (K)John baptized [f]with water, but you will be baptized [g]with the Holy Spirit [h](L)not many days from now.”

So, when they had come together, they began asking Him, saying, “Lord, (M)is it at this time that You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?” But He said to them, “It is not for you to know periods of time or appointed times which (N)the Father has set by His own authority; but you will receive power (O)when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be (P)My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and (Q)Samaria, and as far as (R)the remotest part of the earth.”
