Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time (cycle B)
Jesus was speaking to the people in the synagogue in Capernaum. The people were very interested in what he had to say, because instead of saying ‘the Lord told me to say this,’ he just said it. Because, of course, he was the Lord.
While he was there a man who had demons in his body came up to him. The demons yelled at Jesus and said “Have you come to destroy us. I know you are the Holy One of God.”
Jesus ordered the demons to come out of the man. And they did!
The people watching were amazed because the demons did what he told them to do. The demons obeyed, because they had to obey God.
Jesus is a man, but he is also God. He has power over the earth.
