23 And there was in their synagogue* a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
(G4864 συναγωγή sunagoge (sïn-a-ğō-ǰee’) n. 1. a gathering of persons. 2. (by analogy) a religious meeting or building (of Jews, Jewish Christians, Greeks, or even of Satan).
24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. (What many people miss is the fact that this demon is the first to identify Yeshua as the Messiah.)
26 And when the unclean spirit had torn* him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
(*G4682 σπαράσσω sparasso (spa-ras’-sō) v. convulse with epilepsy.)
27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him. (Mark 16:17 “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name [authority] shall they cast out devils”)
28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
29 And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30 But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon (at once, soon) they tell him of her.
31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted* her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
(*G1453 ἐγείρω egeiro (e-ǰei’-rō) v.1. to waken. 2. (literally) rouse from sleep, from sitting or lying, from disease, from death. 3. (figuratively) rouse from obscurity, inactivity, ruins, nonexistence.)
Who else needs lifted up? I do!
32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.
33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.
34 And he healed many that were sick of diverse diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.
