Jesus and his followers went into Capernaum. Immediately on the Sabbath Jesus entered the synagogue and started teaching.
The people were amazed by his teaching, for he was teaching them with authority, not like the legal experts.
Suddenly, there in the synagogue, a person with an evil spirit screamed,
"What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are. You are the holy one from God."
"Silence!" Jesus said, speaking harshly to the demon. "Come out of him!"
The unclean spirit shook him and screamed, then it came out.
Everyone was shaken and questioned among themselves, "What's this? A new teaching with authority! He even commands unclean spirits and they obey him!"
Right away the news about him spread throughout the entire region of Galilee.
