    I also believe this chapter cover a number of things Faith, verse 44 says came from behind him and touch the border of his garment. (the woman with the issues of blood), obey, verse 25 for he commands even the wind and the water,(leaving this disciples baffled). And the power of God, which he demonstrates through out chapter 8. If we trust God and live according to the laws there wouldn't be anything with held from us God word says To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God.

    I re-read the whole chapter of Luke 8 and noticed that it is very rich with great things that our Lord did. The Lunatick man at the graves/tombs is a point to also focus on.

    How his condition bothered the Lord and moved Him just to go for him in Gedarenes in Galelee. Such that many many evil spirits in this man shouted in unison; and asked;"What have I to do with thee Jesus thou Son of God, Most High?"

    Jesus came from Galelee too as the man. He could have known about this man all along, yet waited for the right time to set him free.

    At the right time Jesus went for him. Just to go and deliver him. Those demons bowed down before Jesus and begged Him not to sent them to torment before time
  • Obbie Beal on Luke 8
    52 And all wept, and bewailed her, but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth... Note how JESUS taught them plus us of 2020 HE has power /authority over death. In this case JESUS spoke and death had no chore but to released the child.
  • Stuart T Lyons on Luke 8
    That some of those were ignorant of the power and love of God
  • Sf on Luke 8
    , What is thy name? A demon looking like a human appeared to me in my room at night if I was sleeping or awake I don t know because it was so real. At first I was afraid and went down and I said I m trying to live right but then he was on a different side of my bed and I asked him what is your name. He told me Cochino
  • Emily - in Reply on Luke 8
    Demons can and do lie, just as the creature who appeared to Mohammed calling himself the angel Gabriel Jibreel . Best not to try find out about demons or credit them with any more attention than necessary. I suggest reading Michael Pearl's book Sin No More for freedom from addiction.

    Where is your faith?
  • Frank on Luke 8
    But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.
  • Obbie Beal on Luke 8

    11 Now the parable is this;The SEED is the WORD of GOD. (sowing is a as mention above is a very old method of planting seeds; in this case though many seeds are sown by the sower into the heart of us, many of the some seed will not never produce because the heart was so hard or cluttered with earthly junk).
  • Sally on Luke 8
    And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

    48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace

    She had faith acted on it and was healed. But she felt afraid,our flesh feels unworthy.
  • Sally on Luke 8
    The this scripture helped me , James.
  • BSP on Luke 8
    Verse 48~Jesus reassured the woman with the flow of blood and referred to her as daughter. This shows how compassionate Jesus is towards all.
  • Angela Callahan on Luke 8
    What I think Jesus heals many and the people who laughed at Jesus really don't understand that Jesus has power
  • A disciple on Luke 8
    Steve Morrow and all; What kind of nature or disposition does the Spirit descend upon and stay, a Lamb, or a Tiger? Do you think that the Scriptures or for our salvation and comfort, but not also for light to expose and correction, in order for us to really and truly overcome all the tests and tribulations of life? Judge righteous judgment, and cease this envying and bitterness; or He will depart.
  • Eutychus on Luke 8
    Women, "which ministered unto him of their substance." vss 2-3. We see then, how Jesus received assistance from some of his disciples...Question: How did the apostolic team, the disciples and others who traveled about with Jesus, get their sustenance? And too, did the 12 'professionals' receive weekly paychecks? That is just one of the questions we usually never get around to asking...
  • A disciple on Luke 8
    "Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved." The natural man knows not the Holy Spirit in any of his understanding. If he hears the Word of God, the devil is able to quickly take it away because he is most natural thinking like the devil, and his heathen pride can't let him soften his heart.
  • BSP on Luke 8
    Verse 11: The Bible is likened to a seed here. We must get the Word of God into our minds and sink it deep down into our hearts.
  • Brother Richard on Luke 8
    Luke 8 is one of those chapters that you will overlook wonderful lessons in if you read it to fast. For example, vs.41
  • Servant of God on Luke 8
    What does it mean, Salvation, and why should one sweat it? Some think it's easy as accepting Jesus in your heart. Would that it was as easy as holding hands in a circle and feigning ecstasy! But it is about your human experience on earth, altogether. It is about deriving from the Word what God intends. And changing dramatically, resisting sin, as God, the Father has taught since Adam and Eve.
  • A disciple on Luke 8
    "Therefore see ye how ye hear; for it shall be given to him that hath, and whoever hath not, also that that he weeneth (thinks, imagines, assumes wrongly) that he have, shall be taken away from him." Luke 8:18 (Wycliffe Bible) Whether it be the work of the devil, or one's neglect of working on himself, or misguided mingling with things of life; WE OURSELVES will account for how we act on the Word.
  • A disciple on Luke 8
    "..how great things God hath done unto thee.." (cont.) Peter and the other Apostles never went around talking about their past lives of sin and uncleanness; but they expounded the Scriptures by the wisdom and understanding God had given them through the Spirit and preached that men should repent. No one is going to get saved by listening to the catalog of a man's past sins, but by preaching Jesus!
  • A disciple on Luke 8
    "Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him." On the subject of testifying to others "how great things God hath done" unto us; we have to speak of the things we KNOW, just like this man KNEW that Jesus had healed him! Everyone could see the evidence in his life!
  • Servant on Luke 8
    Who gets transformed? Those who hear the word from the fertile ground of faith. What is faith? The turning away from the pleasures of this world for they are not blessings from God but devices of the Devil. Look how many devils entered into Legion: enoigh to drown a herd of swine! Who has faith to be healed? Those who humble themselves, not boasters, those self congradulators who lead us.
  • A disciple on Luke 8
    BSP; Good words! "He that sows the good seed is the Son of Man" the good seed is the word of God sown into our hearts. We must have a good and honest heart to receive the word right so that it will sprout and grow in us and come to maturity and bear good fruit unto God. We are known by our fruit; our fruit is to be in the image and likeness of God: that's how it is known that we are men! Genesis 1:26
  • BSP on Luke 8
    Verse 11: The word of God is likened to a seed. We must get this seed deep down into our hearts in order for it to produce fruitage.
  • BSP on Luke 8
    Verse 45: Since Jesus had to ask who touched him, this indicates that Jehovah God saw the woman and he used the power that he had given Jesus to heal her.
  • Peter A. Okebukola on Luke 8
    We learned in verse 1 that Jesus "went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God". So, He did not miss out any city or village to avoid the excuse that they did not have the opportunity to hear the Word, see the miracles and see the Saviour in action. Today, we also have no excuse as the Word is now preached throughout the world.
  • A disciple on Luke 8
    This chapter seems to have a special devotion to how the Lord cares for women and girls. It opens with mentioning how "many" "ministered unto Him of their substance;" and then finishes with showing how that Jesus knows who is touching Him in Faith; and about WHO is all the joy and meaning in their parents' life, and that the Lord is not willing to take her away from them. We learn a lot by these!
  • A disciple on Luke 8
    "And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities . . which ministered unto him of their substance." There are many references to women in the early Church; and what they did, and how important they were. There were no women called to be Apostles; and it was understood as God's commandment, that they not teach, nor dominate over men. But they helped in many ways with honor!
  • Brianna on Luke 8
    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.
