Peter's Mother-in-law

Peter's Mother-in-law's houseIn Luke 4.38-39 we read, "Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Peter. Now Peter's mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her. So he bent over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began to wait on them." Jesus healing power and lordship extended 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 the truth that it is only God who can heal.✞

Peter's Mother-in-Law

A modern surgeryThe little house which belonged to Peter's mother-in-law here this miracle took place still stands today, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee in the village of Capernaum. Jesus healing power was poured forth on 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 from Peter's mother-in-law's house. Interestingly, there are a number of Christian symbols on grave markers in this ancient cemetery from the very earliest times engraved in the stones like an anchor and a fish which were early Christian symbols.✞
