38 Then He stood up and left the synagogue, and entered Simon’s home. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Him to help her. 39 And standing over her, He rebuked the fever, and it left her. Immediately she stood up and began waiting on them. 40 And while the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him, and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them. 41 And demons also were coming out of many, shouting and saying, “You are the Son of God!” But rebuking them, He was not allowing them to speak, because they knew Him to be the Christ. 42 When day came, Jesus left and went to a secluded place; and the crowds were eagerly seeking for Him, and came to Him and tried to keep Him from going away from them. 43 But He said to them, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.” 44 So He kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea.
“The One who was there, who could calm the sea and still the storm by the word of rebuke, has the power and authority to command rocks to speak or bacteria to leave a human body.The authority of Jesus over all power and every force of nature is manifest in this event when He healed Peter’s mother-in-law by admonishing the fever.” Dr. R.C.
