A Busy Day Healing

The life of Jesus of Nazareth plate 47.

Hey person, don’t wait for me. I’m still going after the fish Jesus and his disciples left in the boat.

What do you mean, it’s time for another story? That fish story was good enough for me.

He did? Jesus had a busy day in Capernaum? With more miracles?

Okay, I’ll listen.


On the Sabbath Jesus went to the synagogue in Capernaum and began to teach. And people were amazed at his teaching because he taught with authority.

And while he was teaching, a man possessed by an evil spirit cried out, “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are – the Holy One of God!”


I bet Jesus could just pull out his lightsaber and zap that guy. Doesn’t that evil spirit guy know who Jesus is?

Oh, he does know?

And what do you mean, Jesus doesn’t need a lightsaber? That spoils all the fun.

I am listening.


Jesus said sternly, “Be quiet! Come out of him.”

The evil spirit threw the man down before everyone there and came out with a shriek.


That’s it? Jesus just says a few words and that evil spirit leaves?

That’s pretty cool, but I still wish he used a lightsaber.

God could rewrite the Bible and add lightsabers to it.

Yes, I’m listening.


When Jesus left the synagogue he went with James and John to Simon and Andrew’s house. Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever so Jesus went to her, took her hand, and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them.

That evening people brought all kinds of sick and demon possessed to Jesus. Jesus laid his hands on each of the sick and healed them, and drove out many demons, but he wouldn’t let the demons speak because they knew who he was.


So Jesus could heal with a few words or a touch but he wouldn’t let the demons speak. I wonder what they would do with their words.

If they try to do anything bad I’m going to give them what for.

Okay, I’ll let you finish the story.


That night Jesus went to a place by himself to pray and when his disciples found him they all left to go to the nearby villages. They travelled throughout Galilee. Jesus preached the good news of the kingdom, healed every sickness and disease, and drove out demons.


That’s it? No lightsabers, no fish, nothing?

I’ll see you later. I’m going back to that boat with all the fish in it.

      Patrecia, there definitely is something amiss with my person. I think she’s just lazy because she says she has a bug and I can’t find any bugs anywhere around her.

        Patrecia, I’m trying to get my person to get her exercise. I think she’d get better if she’d just take me for a walk.

      Marina, my person is slowly getting better, but no new adventures yet.

    I can understand why you’d want Jesus to have a lightsaber, but he could see very well without one because he had his own light.

      Sandra, Jesus is pretty cool, isn’t he?

    Interesting interpretation of the story. Hope your human feels better soon.

      Thanks Writer Rabbit. My person is starting to get better slowly.

    Wow! Ginger says she definitely wants to recruit Jesus for her world domination. She says she will promise to fight demons if he helps…… and to hand out lots of fish! 🙂

      Ginger, we’re thinking along the same lines. I almost mentioned you in the story. It just seemed to fit somehow.

    You know, many people draw comparisons between the Star Wars stories and the messages of Christianity – so it is kind of like Jesus with a light sabre!

      Of course what Jesus gives us is much more powerful than a lightsaber.

    I would like a lightsaber, too, but your Mom is right – Jesus is our own Light.

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2013 at 2:42 pm

      Roberta, my person says Jesus has much more light – and power than a lightsaber. And he can catch fish.

    I’ll come with you to the boat, Bongo, but before say Hi to your person and hope she’ll get better soon 🙂

      Thanks Little Binky. My person is on the mend now. She still gets tired very easily but it’s getting better.

    Oh no!!! Demons….very scary….I’m glad that Jesus drove out many demons!
    Hmmm…lightsaber….yes if Jesus had it, he would look extremely gorgeous!!! 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2013 at 2:46 pm

      Kevin, my person says Jesus sent lots of scary demons away. He would look gorgeous with a lightsaber, but my person says eventually he’s going to come back riding on a white horse. I think that sounds even better – at least as long as he doesn’t trample me on the way.

    OMD – I am dying laughing here! Jesus with a light saber! It was Peter who had the light saber.

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2013 at 2:47 pm

      FleaByte, my person says Jesus probably took Peter’s lightsaber away because Peter got into trouble for using it.

    Jesus doesn’t need no stinkin light saber! 🙂 Although yeah, that kind of would have been cool to see – especially back in those days, right?

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2013 at 2:48 pm

      Blueberry’s human, no one would have know what hit them. But I don’t think they did anyway.
