Feb 19 5.7 Leaving the synagogue, Jesus with James and John went to Andrew and Peters house, where Peters mother-in-law was in bed with high fever. On hearing this, Jesus went to her, rebuked the fever and pulled her up by the hand. The fever left, and instantly she rose and served them.

That evening, the whole city brought all the sick and demon-possessed to Peters house. With a word Jesus healed all1 who had various diseases, thus fulfilling Isaiahs prophecy: “He took our infirmities and carried our diseases.2 He cast out many demons which shouted, “You are Gods Son.” And he forbade them speaking, because they knew him to be the Christ.
