    Vs. 17 was recently applied to domestic violence, or marriage tyranny. These seem to be very private issues, and many times people try to hide these problems. However,t his brings comfort that Jehovah God is aware of all things, and will bring justice upon those who are evil to their marriage mates.

    To Lou Charles - another way to view Jesus saying, :Tell no one" is - he knew they would - and His desire was for His people to be witnesses; reverse phsycology.

    Jesus shows His deity in this chapter first He shows His power over the sea, then He shows His power over the spirits, then He shows His power over disease and sickness, then He shows His power over death.

    Lou Charles, the reason Jesus would tell people that is he attempted to control his fame in order to minimize the effects of the enemies of the gospel or his work of salvation on planet earth. Glory be to God in the highest through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen!

    I love from verse 43 the woman with the issue of blood, and the way she got healed, a lot of us give up,but she did not give up she pressed through the crowd and the result was her healing, thank God..so we ought to press through and never give up for God was able then and certainly he is able now,.....
