Feb 18 5.6 Reaching Capernaum, Jesus taught on a Sabbath with such authority, unusual with scholars, as amazed the people. In the synagogue a man with an unclean spirit cried out, “What is between you and us, Jesus of Nazareth, our destruction? I know who you are, Gods Holy One!1

Jesus commanded, “Be quiet! Come out!” Throwing the man violently, the demon screamed and came out harmless. Amazed onlookers asked themselves, “What a new teaching? With authority2 and power, he commands demons and they obey!” His fame spread throughout Galilee area.
