The Entrance

On the Sabbath after Jesus has ministered in the synagogue we
see Him enter into Peter’s home and heal Peter’s mother in law. Jesus is not
content to stay within the confines of the religious order of his day but moves into
the world of Peter’s family where there is family; there is community; there are
neighbors. This is a world where illness and demon-possession are common. Jesus
demonstrates His authority as he heals the sick and drives out demons. Life is not
compartmentalized with Jesus.
