14 Now after John had been [a]taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, [b]preaching the gospel of God,15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God [c]is at hand; repent and [d]believe in the gospel.”
16 As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen.17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”18 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.19 Going on a little farther, He saw [e]James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets.20 Immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away [f]to follow Him.
21 They *went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach.22 They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.23 Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,24 saying, “What [g]business do we have with each other, Jesus [h]of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!”25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”26 Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him.27 They were all amazed, so that they debated among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.”28 Immediately the news about Him spread everywhere into all the surrounding district of Galilee.
29 And immediately after they came out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with [i]James and John.30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever; and immediately they *spoke to [j]Jesus about her.31 And He came to her and raised her up, taking her by the hand, and the fever left her, and she [k]waited on them.
32 When evening came, after the sun had set, they began bringing to Him all who were ill and those who were demon-possessed.33 And the whole city had gathered at the door.34 And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was.
