Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 1:32-34; Luke 4:40-41

After Jesus healed Peter’s mother-in-law in Capernaum. Jesus healed many people during the evening of all kinds of illnesses. Each one of the Gospels gives us more information about these miracles.

The Gospel of Matthew 8:16-17 tells us: “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: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”

The reason Jesus healed the sick; cast out the spirits of these possessed with devils was to fulfill what the prophet Isaiah said in Isaiah 53:4-5 “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. ”

Esaias is a form of Greek for Isaiah. Isaiah was a prophet of the LORD God and was one of the first Old Testament who prophesized about the coming of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Isaiah speaks of bearing our grief’s which includes sickness and disease. Jesus carried sorrow which includes mental and physical pain.

The Gospel of Mark 1:32-34 tells us: “And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. And all the city was gathered together at the door. 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.”
Mark adds that the all the city was gathered together at the door. That was a lot of people who had already heard about the healing power of Jesus. There was no internet back then so everything spread by word of mouth.
The Gospel of Luke 4:40-41 says: “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. 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”
Jesus healed those sick with different diseases by laying his hands on them. Matthew tells us that by just speaking the Word Jesus cast out evil spirits.

What Can Be Learned From This Lesson?

The healing’s performed by Jesus does come at a cost to Him. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions which are wrongdoings or our disobedience. He was bruised for our iniquities which is quilt of our sins. And it is important that we understand that it was because of wounding of Jesus that we are healed.

Why did Jesus prevent the evil spirits or devils from proclaiming that He was the Messiah? Because it would be too easy for the people to think that the only reason that Jesus came to earth was to perform miracles.
It is interesting that evil spirits or devils knew that Jesus was the Christ the Son of God. The people in the city just knew that here was a man called Jesus that could heal the sick and diseased, drive out evil spirits and heal all kinds of infirmities.

Jesus came to teach in their synagogues and preach the gospel of the kingdom of God and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. (Matthew 9:35).

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18)

John 3:15-18 gives clarification for why Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior came to earth. “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
