Matthew 8:16

When even was come (opsia genomenh). Genitive absolute. A beautiful sunset scene at the close of the Sabbath day ( Mark 1:21 ). Then the crowds came as Jesus stood in the door of Peter's house ( Mark 1:33 ; Matthew 8:14 ) as all the city gathered there with the sick, "all those who had it bad" (see on "Mt 4:24") and he healed them "with a word" (logwi). It was a never to be forgotten memory for those who saw it.
