the Teacher, Simon, James, John and I were coming out of the Synagogue in Capernaum. The Teacher agreed to come over to our house and the Teacher was tired after what had just happened. The Teacher was teaching in the Synagogue and everybody was amazed and thought he was speaking with authority. All of a sudden, a man with an unclean spirit cried out " what business do we have with each other Jesus of Nazareth, have you come to destroy us". " Be quiet and come out of him" Jesus loudly said as he stared directly at the man. The unclean spirit came out of the man violently and everyone was amazed and wondered who is this man that even unclean spirits obey him.
Simon and myself were happy that the Teacher was coming to our house. Simon's mother in law was sick in bed with a fever and the Teacher agreed to come to our house. The Teacher entered our house and walked up to the bed with compassion on his face. The Teacher raised Simon's mother in law up and took her hand and the fever left her. After the fever had left her, she started to wait on us.When evening came, many people who had unclean spirits and who were ill came to the Teacher to be healed.
Jesus noticed a crowd was gathering and he suggested to his followers that they go to the other side of the Sea. When they arrived at the other side of the Sea, a scribe came up to the Teacher and said " Teacher, I will follow you where ever you go". The Teacher responded " the foxes have holes and the birds have nests but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head". One of the Teacher's followers said " Teacher, permit me to go and bury my father". The Teacher responded " follow me and allow the dead to bury their own dead".
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
