Jesus Heals the Sick

23 Jesus went throughout Galilee,(A) teaching in their synagogues,(B) proclaiming the good news(C) of the kingdom,(D) and healing every disease and sickness among the people.(E) 24 News about him spread all over Syria,(F) and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed,(G) those having seizures,(H) and the paralyzed;(I) and he healed them. 25 Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis,[a] Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him.(J)

Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.
