Matthew 9:32-34

Jesus Heals a Man Unable to Speak

32 As they were going away, behold, a demon-oppressed man who was mute was brought to him. 33 And when the demon had been cast out, the mute man spoke. And the crowds marveled, saying, “Never was anything like this seen in Israel.” 34 But the Pharisees said, “He casts out demons by the prince of demons.”



Notice this miracle is dealing with a demon-oppressed man and when he was healed, the “crowds marveled, saying ‘Never was anything like this seen in Israel.’”  This is new and different to them.  We would marvel at it even today.  A miracle is a miracle.  The Lutheran Study Bible states: When the mute man speaks, the crowds recognize that Jesus is someone special. But the Pharisees have a negative explanation for His power over demons. Today, people are still divided in their reactions to Jesus. Yet, the Gospel speaks clearly that He is the Christ (16:16), the Savior.


I pray: Holy Spirit, strengthen my faith in Jesus as my Savior and Lord. Loose my tongue, that I may bear witness to His mercy. Amen.[1]

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
