Jesus has come announcing that the Kingdom authority of Heaven has come to earth in a new and decisive way! His proclamation of the heavenly message has set the people of Capernaum back on their heels: Who is this guy? What is this teaching with authority?Even more, Jesus has demonstrated the power of Heaven in confronting and completely controlling the demonic powers that threaten the citizens of the city. This has added to their amazement: Who is this, that even the unclean spirits obey Him?In today’s text we see that Jesus is not finished in Capernaum. Leaving the synagogue, He moves to Peter’s home and once again the power of Heaven is demonstrated, this time in the physical healing of a woman. When news gets out that Jesus can cast out both demons and disease, the city rushes to His door. But Jesus has come to do much more than make lives better; He has come to proclaim the message of eternal life.
