On the April 6, 2011 edition of Following The Truth, I discussed Jesus’ healing of Peter’s mother-in-law. Covered by 3 of the Evangelists (Matthew, Mark, and Luke), this simple tale reminds us all that the Lord can heal us of any infirmity, spiritual or physical.
Here are the 3 versions of the story that we covered on the show:
On leaving the synagogue he entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John. Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever. They immediately told him about her. He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up. Then the fever left her and she waited on them. (Mk 1:29-31)
After he left the synagogue, he entered the house of Simon. Simon’s mother-in-law was afflicted with a severe fever, and they interceded with him about her. He stood over her, rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up immediately and waited on them. (Lk 4:38-39)
