Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evila spirit cried out,
"What do you want with us,1 Jesus of Nazareth?2 Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God!"325"Be quiet!" said Jesus sternly. "Come out of him!"426
The evil spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.527
The people were all so amazed6 that they asked each other, "What is this? A new teaching--and with authority! He even gives orders to evil spirits and they obey him."
News about him spread quickly over the whole region7 of Galilee.
