Peter's Mother-in-Law 31

Place Called Capernaum

Simon's Mother in law house CapernaumIn Luke 4.38-40 we read, "Jesus left the synagogue and went to Simon's [Simon’s other name was "Peter"] house. Simon's mother-in-law was very sick. She had a high fever. They asked Jesus to do something to help her. He stood very close to her and ordered the sickness to go away. The sickness left her, and she got up and began serving them." Jesus healing power and lordship extends still further into the realm of health care. His healing power could, as God only can, completely heal individuals. We have become so reliant on medical science and the care of doctors and nurses that we have lost this truth that it is only God who can heal.✞

Jesus Healing Power

A modern surgeryIn this little house still stands today, on the shores of Galilee at a place called Capernaum, Jesus healing power was poured forth on Simon Peter's mother-in-law. He had just left the synagogue, the ruins of which are among the oldest synagogues in the world, and the remains of which still stand just a short walk up the road. Interestingly, there are a number of Christian symbols on grave markers in the ancient cemetary there.✞
