The cure of the demoniac

Back to album page | Back to tile narrative page

According to Mark, after the call of the first four disciples, Jesus began his teaching in the synagogue at Capernaum. A man possessed by an unclean spirit rushed forward from the congregation and was thrown into a convulsion by the spirit, which asks Jesus, "Have you come to destroy us?"
So they made their way to Capharnaum; here, as soon as the Sabbath came, he went into the synagogue and taught; and they were amazed by his teaching, for he sat there teaching them like one who had authority, not like the scribes. And there, in the synagogue, was a man possessed by an unclean spirit, who cried aloud: Why dost thou meddle with us Jesus of Nazareth? Hast thou come to make an end of us? I recognise thee for what thou art, the Holy One of God. Jesus spoke to him threateningly; Silence! he said, come out of him. Then the unclean spirit threw him into a convulsion, and cried with a loud voice, and so came out of him. All were full of astonishment; What can this be? They asked one another. What is this new teaching? See how he has authority to lay his commands even on the unclean spirits, and they obey him! And the story of his doings at once spread through the whole region of Galilee.
