Luke 8:31

Overview - Luke 8
Women minister unto Christ of their substance.
Christ, after he had preached from place to place, attended by his apostles, propounds the parable of the sower,
16 and the candle;
19 declares who are his mother, and brethren;
22 rebukes the winds;
26 casts the legion of devils out of the man into the herd of swine;
37 is rejected of the Gadarenes,;
43 heals the woman of her bloody issue;
49 and raises from death Jairus's daughter.
