Welcome to Day Three of our Blobble Study for Lent. That is a Bible study on a Blog. If you are enjoying this Bible study so far, why not share it with a friend and make it a point to discuss and learn together? One of the great things about the new technology is how easily and naturally you can evangelize. Simply use the “share” button.
Remember again to read slowly and before you read the gospel ask the Holy Spirit to open your mind and heart to meet Jesus again in a fresh way. That’s the point of this Bible study.
Remember also that you can use the “Categories” tool to immediately bring up all the daily posts in this Bible Study series.
Today we move on through Chapter One as Jesus begins his ministry.
The Cure of a Demoniac.
2 Then they came to Capernaum, and on the sabbath he entered the synagogue and taught. 22The people were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes. 23 In their synagogue was a man with an unclean spirit; 2 he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” 25Jesus rebuked him and said, “Quiet! Come out of him!” 26The unclean spirit convulsed him and with a loud cry came out of him. 27All were amazed and asked one another, “What is this? A new teaching with authority. He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him.” 28His fame spread everywhere throughout the whole region of Galilee.
The Cure of Simon’s Mother-in-Law.
29 On leaving the synagogue he entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.30Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever. They immediately told him about her. 31He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up. Then the fever left her and she waited on them.
32When it was evening, after sunset, they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons. 33The whole town was gathered at the door. 34He cured many who were sick with various diseases, and he drove out many demons, not permitting them to speak because they knew him.
