21 They went to
Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and
22 They were astounded
at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and
not as the scribes.
23 Just then there
was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit,
24 and he cried
out, ‘What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have
you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.’
25 But Jesus rebuked
him, saying, ‘Be silent, and come out of him!’
26 And the unclean
spirit, throwing him into convulsions and crying with a loud voice,
came out of him.
27 They were all
amazed, and they kept on asking one another, ‘What is this?
A new teaching -- with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits,
and they obey him.’
28 At once his
fame began to spread throughout the surrounding region of Galilee.
