Blended Gospels: Jesus Heals a Man with an Unclean Spirit

And they went into Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and was teaching. And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes.

And immediately there was in their synagogue a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon. And he cried out, "Ha! 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."

But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!"

And the unclean spirit, when he had thrown him down in their midst, convulsing him and crying out with a loud voice, came out of him, having done him no harm. And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? A new teaching with authority and power! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him and come out."

And at once reports about him went out into every place, and his fame spread everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.

[Mark 1:21-28, Luke 4:31b-37 ESV]
