Matthew 12:22-24 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Jesus Frees a Demonized Man

22 Then a man was brought before Jesus who had a demon spirit that made him both blind and unable to speak. Jesus healed him instantly, and he could see and talk again! 23 The crowds went wild with amazement as they witnessed this miracle. And they kept saying to one another, “Could this man be the Messiah?”[a]

24 But when the Pharisees overheard what the people were saying about the miracle, they said, “He casts out demons by the power of Satan,[b] the prince of demons!”


  1. Matthew 12:23 Or “Could he be the Son of David,” a title used for the Messiah.
  2. Matthew 12:24 Or “Beelzebub” (Baal-zebub), a title used for Satan. See footnote on Matt. 10:25.
