And there was also many a leper in Israel in the time of the Prophet Elisha, and yet not one of them was cleansed, but Naaman the Syrian was."

And they were greatly impressed by His teaching, because He spoke with the language of authority.
But in the synagogue there was a man possessed by the spirit of a foul demon. In a loud voice he cried out,
