Then Jesus went to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness.
And He was amazed at their unbelief. Now He was going around the villages in a circuit, teaching.
After this, Jesus traveled in Galilee, since He did not want to travel in Judea because the Jews were trying to kill Him.
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and curing all who were under the tyranny of the Devil, because God was with Him.
Moving on from there, He entered their synagogue.
He went to His hometown and began to teach them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, "How did this wisdom and these miracles come to Him?
They said in their hearts, "Let us oppress them relentlessly." They burned down every place throughout the land where God met with us.
Then they went into Capernaum, and right away He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath and began to teach.
So He went into all of Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard Him were astonished. "Where did this man get these things?" they said. "What is this wisdom given to Him, and how are these miracles performed by His hands?
He was teaching in their synagogues, being acclaimed by everyone.
He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. As usual, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath day and stood up to read.
And He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.
As He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath,
Immediately he began proclaiming Jesus in the synagogues: "He is the Son of God."
"Lord," Ananias answered, "I have heard from many people about this man, how much harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem.
And he has authority here from the chief priests to arrest all who call on Your name."
But the Lord said to him, "Go! For this man is My chosen instrument to carry My name before Gentiles, kings, and the sons of Israel.
I will certainly show him how much he must suffer for My name!"
So Ananias left and entered the house. Then he placed his hands on him and said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road you were traveling, has sent me so you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."
At once something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he got up and was baptized.
And after taking some food, he regained his strength. Saul was with the disciples in Damascus for some days.
Immediately he began proclaiming Jesus in the synagogues: "He is the Son of God."
But all who heard him were astounded and said, "Isn't this the man who, in Jerusalem, was destroying those who called on this name, and then came here for the purpose of taking them as prisoners to the chief priests?"
But Saul grew more capable, and kept confounding the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that this One is the Messiah.
After many days had passed, the Jews conspired to kill him,
but their plot became known to Saul. So they were watching the gates day and night intending to kill him,
but his disciples took him by night and lowered him in a large basket through [an opening in] the wall.
When he arrived in Jerusalem, he tried to associate with the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, since they did not believe he was a disciple.
Barnabas, however, took him and brought him to the apostles and explained to them how, on the road, Saul had seen the Lord, and that He had talked to him, and how in Damascus he had spoken boldly in the name of Jesus.
Saul was coming and going with them in Jerusalem, speaking boldly in the name of the Lord.
He conversed and debated with the Hellenistic Jews, but they attempted to kill him.
When the brothers found out, they took him down to Caesarea and sent him off to Tarsus.
So the church throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace, being built up and walking in the fear of the Lord and in the encouragement of the Holy Spirit, and it increased in numbers.
As Peter was traveling from place to place, he also came down to the saints who lived in Lydda.
There he found a man named Aeneas, who was paralyzed and had been bedridden for eight years.
Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your own bed," and immediately he got up.
So all who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord.
In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. She was always doing good works and acts of charity.
In those days she became sick and died. After washing her, they placed her in a room upstairs.
Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples heard that Peter was there and sent two men to him who begged him, "Don't delay in coming with us."
So Peter got up and went with them. When he arrived, they led him to the room upstairs. And all the widows approached him, weeping and showing him the robes and clothes that Dorcas had made while she was with them.
Then Peter sent them all out of the room. He knelt down, prayed, and turning toward the body said, "Tabitha, get up!" She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and sat up.
He gave her his hand and helped her stand up. Then he called the saints and widows and presented her alive.
This became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord.
And Peter stayed on many days in Joppa with Simon, a leather tanner.
He reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath and tried to persuade both Jews and Greeks.
When anyone hears the word about the kingdom and doesn't understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the one sown along the path.
This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world as a testimony to all nations. And then the end will come.
After John was arrested, Jesus went to Galilee, preaching the good news of God:
The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to Him, and unrolling the scroll, He found the place where it was written:
The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed,
Soon afterwards He was traveling from one town and village to another, preaching and telling the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with Him,
One day as He was teaching the people in the temple complex and proclaiming the good news, the chief priests and the scribes, with the elders, came up
And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How welcome are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things!
When evening came, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. He drove out the spirits with a word and healed all who were sick,
so that what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: He Himself took our weaknesses and carried our diseases.
As you go, announce this: 'The kingdom of heaven has come near.'
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those with skin diseases, drive out demons. You have received free of charge; give free of charge.
the blind see, the lame walk, those with skin diseases are healed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor are told the good news.
and large crowds came to Him, having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, those unable to speak, and many others. They put them at His feet, and He healed them.
So the crowd was amazed when they saw those unable to speak talking, the deformed restored, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they gave glory to the God of Israel.
He forgives all your sin; He heals all your diseases.
When evening came, after the sun had set, they began bringing to Him all those who were sick and those who were demon-possessed.
The whole town was assembled at the door,
and He healed many who were sick with various diseases and drove out many demons. But He would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
Since He had healed many, all who had diseases were pressing toward Him to touch Him.
When the sun was setting, all those who had anyone sick with various diseases brought them to Him. As He laid His hands on each one of them, He would heal them.
Also, demons were coming out of many, shouting and saying, "You are the Son of God!" But He rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew He was the Messiah.
On one of those days while He was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea, and also from Jerusalem. And the Lord's power to heal was in Him.
After coming down with them, He stood on a level place with a large crowd of His disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon.
He replied to them, "Go and report to John the things you have seen and heard: The blind receive their sight, the lame walk, those with skin diseases are healed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have the good news preached to them.
When the crowds found out, they followed Him. He welcomed them, spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and cured those who needed healing.
Heal the sick who are there, and tell them, 'The kingdom of God has come near you.'
As a result, they would carry the sick out into the streets and lay them on beds and pallets so that when Peter came by, at least his shadow might fall on some of them.
In addition, a multitude came together from the towns surrounding Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
