P: The Holy Gospel according to Luke.
C: Glory be to Thee, O Lord
Jesus Heals a Man with an Unclean Demon
And he went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on
the Sabbath, and they were astonished at his teaching, for his word possessed
authority. And in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean
demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, “Ha! What have you to do with us, Jesus
of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of
God.” But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent and come out of him!” And when
the demon had thrown him down in their midst, he came out of him, having done
him no harm. And they were all amazed and said to one another, “What is this
word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they
come out!” And reports about him went out into every place in the surrounding
Jesus Heals Many
And he arose and left the synagogue and entered Simon’s house. Now Simon’s
mother-in-law was ill with a high fever, and they appealed to him on her behalf.
And he stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her, and immediately she
rose and began to serve them.
Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with
various diseases brought them to him, and he laid his hands on every one of them
and healed them. And demons also came out of many, crying, “You are the Son of
God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew
that he was the Christ.
Jesus Preaches in Synagogues
And when it was day, he departed and went into a desolate place. And the people
sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them, but he
said to them, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other
towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.” And he was preaching in the
synagogues of Judea.
P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
