Mark 1:21-28 Casting out

Third Century Synagogue at Capernaum

And they enter Capernaum.
And immediately entering the synagogue he taught on the Sabbath(s). 

And they were amazed at his teaching.  For he was teaching them as one having authority and not as the Torah scholars. 

And immediately  there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit and he cried out saying : ‘What do you have to do with us, and what do we have to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the holy one of God.’ 

And Jesus rebuked him, saying: ‘Be silent, and come out of him!’

And the unclean spirit shook him violently, and having cried out loudly, went out of him. 

And they all were astonished so that they debated amongst themselves: ‘Who is this? A new teaching with authority. And he orders the unclean spirits and they obey him.’

And immediately  news of him went out everywhere into the whole region, that is Galilee.

O Lord Jesus Christ,
stay beside me to defend me,
within me to guide me,
before me to lead me,
and above me to bless me,
that with you and in you,
I may live, and move and have my being,
for ever and ever.
Amen.
