Jesus casts out a devil at Capernaum

Mark 1.21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. 1.22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. 1.23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 1.24 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. 1.25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 1.26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 1.27 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. 1.28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee. Luke 4.14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. 4.15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. 4.31 And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days. 4.32 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power. 4.33 And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, 4.34 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. 4.35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. 4.36 And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out. 4.37 And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.

The centurion's servant

The nobleman's son

Mathhew 8.5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 8.6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 8.7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8.8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 8.9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 8.10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 8.11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 8.12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 8.13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. Luke 7.1 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 7.2 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. 7.3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. 7.4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: 7.5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. 7.6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: 7.7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. 7.8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 7.9 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 7.10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick. John 4.46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. 4.47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. 4.48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. 4.49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. 4.50 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. 4.51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. 4.52 Then inquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. 4.53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house. 4.54 This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.

Jesus heals the mother of Simon

Matthew 8.14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. 8.15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. Mark 1.29 And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 1.30 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her. 1.31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them. Luke 4.38 And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her. 4.39 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.

Other healing

Matthew 8.16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 8.17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. Mark 1.32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. 1.33 And all the city was gathered together at the door. 1.34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him. 1.35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. 1.36 And Simon and they that were with him followed after him. 1.37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. 1.38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. 1.39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils. Luke 4.40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them. 4.41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ. 4.42 And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them. 4.43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent. 4.44 And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

Healing of the leper

Matthew 8.1 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. 8.2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 8.3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 8.4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

1372 Jesus healing a leper by Illustrator of Petrus Comestor's 'Bible Historiale', France

Mark 1.40 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 1.41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. 1.42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. 1.43 And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; 1.44 And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 1.45 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter. Luke 5.12 And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 5.13 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him. 5.14 And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 5.15 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. 5.16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.

Luke

Healing of the ten lepers

Luke 17.11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 17.12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 17.13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 17.14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 17.15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 17.16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17.17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 17.18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 17.19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

Healing of the palsy

Matthew 9.2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. 9.3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. 9.4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? 9.5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? 9.6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. 9.7 And he arose, and departed to his house. 9.8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men. Mark 2.1 And again he entered into Capernaum, after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house. 2.2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. 2.3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. 2.4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. 2.5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. 2.6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, 2.7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? 2.8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts? 2.9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? 2.10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) 2.11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. 2.12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion. 2.13 And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them. Luke 5.17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. 5.18 And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him. 5.19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus. 5.20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. 5.21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone? 5.22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts? 5.23 Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk? 5.24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house. 5.25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. 5.26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.

John

Healing on the Sabbath

Luke 13.10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. 13.11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. 13.12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 13.13 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. 13.14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. 13.15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? 13.16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? 13.17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.

14.1 And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him. 14.2 And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy. 14.3 And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day? 14.4 And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go; 14.5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day? 14.6 And they could not answer him again to these things.
John 5.1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 5.2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. 5.3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. 5.4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. 5.5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. 5.6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? 5.7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. 5.8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 5.9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. 5.10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. 5.11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. 5.12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? 5.13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place. 5.14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. 5.15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

John 7.19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me? 7.20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee? 7.21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel. 7.22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man. 7.23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day? 7.24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
