Blended Gospels: Jesus Heals Many

And immediately he left the synagogue and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. Now Simon’s mother-in-law lay ill with a high fever, and immediately they told him about her and they appealed to him on her behalf. And when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever.

He came and stood over her, rebuked the fever, took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her. And immediately she began to serve them.

That evening, when the sun was setting, they brought to him all those who were sick or oppressed by demons. And the whole city was gathered together at the door. And he laid his hands on every one of them healing them all: many who were sick with various diseases.

And demons also came out of many, crying, "You are the Son of God!" But he rebuked them and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him, that he was the Christ. And he cast out the spirits with a word.

This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: "He took our illnesses and bore our diseases."

[Luke 4:38-41, Mark 1:29-34, Matthew 8:14-17 ESV]
