|Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into* the wilderness,
being tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended, He was hungry.
And the devil said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread."
But Jesus answered him, saying,
Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
And the devil said to Him, "All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.
And Jesus answered and said to him, "Get behind Me, Satan!
Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here.
"and, 'In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.' "
And Jesus answered and said to him, "It has been said, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God.' "
And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
And He began to say to them,
So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said,
He said to them,
But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land;
And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian."
So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,
and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff.
Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way. |
Then He went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teaching them on the Sabbaths.
Now in the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an unclean demon. And he cried out with a loud voice,
But Jesus rebuked him, saying, And when the demon had thrown him in their midst, it came out of him and did not hurt him.
Then they were all amazed and spoke among themselves, saying,
So He stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. And immediately she arose and served them.
When the sun was setting, all those who had any that 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 out and saying, "You are the Christ, the Son of God!" And He, rebuking them, did not allow them to speak, for they knew that He was the Christ.
Now when it was day, He departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowd sought Him and came to Him, and tried to keep Him from leaving them;
but He said to them, "I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent."
And He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.
