Jesus Heals Many14
8:14-16pp — Mk 1:29-34; Lk 4:38-41
When Jesus came into Peter's house, he saw Peter's mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.15
He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him.
When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.17
This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:17
"He took up our infirmities17
and carried our diseases."[a]
