[Matthew 8]

     {Mat 8:1, 8:5-13 & Luk 7:1-10 Capernaum.}

     8:1 Now he came-down from the mountain; large crowds followed him.

     {Mar 1:40-45 & Mat 8:2-4 & Luk 5:12-16.}

     8:2 And behold, a leper came to him, was worshiping him, saying, Lord, if you are willing, you are able to cleanse me.

     8:3 And Jesus, having stretched out his hand, touched him, saying, I am willing; be cleansed. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 8:4 And Jesus says to him, See that you should speak to no one, but proceed on, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift that Moses commanded, *for a testimony to them.{Lev 13:49, 14:2-4}

     {Mat 8:1, 8:5-13 & Luk 7:1-10 Capernaum.}

     8:5 Now after he {i.e. Jesus} entered into Capernaum, a centurion came to him, pleading with him,8:6 and saying, Lord, my young-servant, a paralytic, has been put in the house, terribly tormented.

     8:7 And Jesus says to him, I will heal him, after I have gone there.

     8:8 And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not sufficient that* you should enter under my roof, but only speak by word and my young-servant will be healed. 8:9 For* I am a man also under authority, having soldiers under myself and I say to this one, Travel on and he travels on, and to another, Come and he comes, and to my bondservant, Do* this and he does*it.

     8:10 Now after Jesus heard it, he marveled and said to the ones who are following, Assuredly I am saying to you*, I did not find so-great a faith, {Or: belief; and throughout the N.T.} not even in Israel.8:11But I am saying to you*, that many will be coming from the east and the west, and will be reclined with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens; 8:12but the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into the outer darknessС the weeping and the gnashing of teeth will be there.8:13 Now Jesus said to the centurion, Proceed on, and as you have believed, let it happen for you. And his young-servant was healed in that hour.

     {Mar 1:29-34 & Mat 8:14-17 & Luk 4:38-41 Capernaum.}

     8:14 And after Jesus came into Peter's house, he saw that his mother-in-law had been put in bedand fevered. 8:15 And he touched her hand and the fever left her, and she arose and was serving him.8:16 Now after it became evening, they brought to him many demon-possessed and he cast out the spirits by word and healed all who holding an illness; 8:17*that what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, 'He himself took our weaknesses and bore our diseases.' {Isa 53:4}

     {Mar 4:35-41 & Mat:8:18-27 & Luk 8:22-25 Sea of Galilee.}

     8:18 Now after Jesus saw large crowds around him, he commanded them to go away beyond-thatarea. 8:19 And one scribe came near to him, and said, Teacher, I will be following you wherever you go.

     8:20 And Jesus says to him, The foxes have burrows and the birds of the heaven have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere he may bow his head.

     8:21 Now a different one of his disciples said to him, Lord, permit me first to go away and bury my father.

     8:22 But Jesus said to him, Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead.

     8:23 And having stepped into the ship, his disciples followed him. 8:24 And behold, a great squall happened in the sea, so-as for the ship to be hidden by the waves, but he was sleeping. 8:25 And the disciples having gone to him, awakened him, saying, Save us Lord! We are perishing!

     8:26 And he says to them, Why are you* cowardly? You* of small faith! Then he raised himself up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there became a great calm.

     8:27 Now the men marveled, saying, What sort of man is this, that even the winds and the sea are obeying* him?

     {Mar 5:1-21 & Mat 8:28-34 & Luk 8:26-40 Gergesa.}

     8:28 And he came to the area beyond-that into the region of the Gergesenes, two demon-possessedmen met him, coming forth out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so-then not anyone was able to prevail or to pass through that way. 8:29 And behold, they cried out, saying, What is this thing with us and with you, Jesus, Son of God? Did you come here to torment us before the time? 8:30 Now a herd of many swine was being fed from afar, away from them. 8:31 And the demons were pleading with him, saying, If you cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine.

     8:32 And he said to them, Proceed* away! Now they came out and went into the herd of swine and behold, all the herd of swine rushed down the cliff into the sea and died in the waters. 8:33 Now the ones who are feeding them fled and went away into the city and reported all things and what had happened to the ones who were demon-possessed. 8:34 And behold, all the city came out *for a meeting with Jesus and after they saw him, they pleaded with him*that he should go-away from their borders.
