Jesus Heals Many

Jesus Heals Many

Matthew 8:14-17

Key verses 8:16

“When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.”

Read verses 14-15.  Why might have Jesus visited Peter’s house (8:20)?  Where was Peter’s mother?  What did Jesus do for her?  What did Jesus do for Jesus and his disciples?  What do these verses show about Jesus?  About the God’s purpose for healing his servants?

Read verse 16.  When Jesus came, whom did the people bring to Jesus?  What did the demon-possessed and the sick have in common?  How are the different?  What did Jesus do for them?  What method did Jesus use to drive out evil spirits and heal the sick?  What can we learn about God’s way to bring healing to our lives and he lives of our neighbors?

Read verse 17.  How did Matthew view what Jesus did in this passage?  Read Isaiah 53:3-5.  Ultimately, how did Jesus bring healing to many?
