People's Bible Notes for Matthew 4:24


Mt 4:24 His fame went throughout all Syria. The great Roman province north and east of Palestine, and, at the time of our Savior, including the latter. The cities of Damascus and Antioch were in the province. Possessed with devils. Evil spirit. Persons were actually subject to the control of demons. Of this there is the following proof: (1) Supernatural strength (Mr 5:4); (2) "Mind" is not the source of blindness (Mt 12:22); (3) Insanity cannot "divine" (Ac 16:17); (4) Demons knew Jesus (Mr 1:24); (5) Jesus addresses the demons (Mt 8:32); (6) Demoniacs confess this control (Mr 5:9); (7) Apostles assert it (Lu 10:17); (8) Jesus admitted it (Mt 12:28); (9) Peter assures use of it (Ac 10:38). Lunatick. "Epileptic" in the Revised Version.

    Many times people are born into the Kingdom of God and are asked to be witnesses and lead people to Jesus. What is to be understood is effective witnessing has to be taught. Jesus told his disciples to follow him, and that he would "make" them fishers of men.
