Capítulo 8

1 Después, Jesús recorría las ciudades y los pueblos, predicando y anunciando la Buena Noticia del Reino de Dios. Lo acompañaban los Doce

2 y también algunas mujeres que habían sido curadas de malos espíritus y enfermedades: María, llamada Magdalena, de la que habían salido siete demonios;

3 Juana, esposa de Cusa, intendente de Herodes, Susana y muchas otras, que los ayudaban con sus bienes.

4 Como se reunía una gran multitud y acudía a Jesús gente de todas las ciudades, él les dijo, valiéndose de una parábola:

5 «El sembrador salió a sembrar su semilla. Al sembrar, una parte de la semilla cayó al borde del camino, donde fue pisoteada y se la comieron los pájaros del cielo.

6 Otra parte cayó sobre las piedras y, al brotar, se secó por falta de humedad.

7 Otra cayó entre las espinas, y estas, brotando al mismo tiempo, la ahogaron.

8 Otra parte cayó en tierra fértil, brotó y produjo fruto al ciento por uno». Y una vez que dijo esto, exclamó: «¡El que tenga oídos para oír, que oiga!».

9 Sus discípulos le preguntaron qué significaba esta parábola,

10 y Jesús les dijo: «A ustedes se les ha concedido conocer los misterios del Reino de Dios; a los demás, en cambio, se les habla en parábolas, para que miren sin ver y oigan sin comprender.

11 La parábola quiere decir esto: La semilla es la Palabra de Dios.

12 Los que están al borde del camino son los que escuchan, pero luego viene el demonio y arrebata la Palabra de sus corazones, para que no crean y se salven.

13 Los que están sobre las piedras son los que reciben la Palabra con alegría, apenas la oyen; pero no tienen raíces: creen por un tiempo, y en el momento de la tentación se vuelven atrás.

14 Lo que cayó entre espinas son los que escuchan, pero con las preocupaciones, las riquezas y los placeres de la vida, se van dejando ahogar poco a poco, y no llegan a madurar.

15 Lo que cayó en tierra fértil son los que escuchan la Palabra con un corazón bien dispuesto, la retienen, y dan fruto gracias a sus constancia.

16 No se enciende una lámpara para cubrirla con un recipiente o para ponerla debajo de la cama, sino que se la coloca sobre un candelero, para que los que entren vean la luz.

17 Porque no hay nada oculto que no se descubra algún día, ni nada secreto que no deba ser conocido y divulgado.

18 Presten atención y oigan bien, porque al que tiene, se le dará, pero al que no tiene, se le quitará hasta lo que cree tener».

19 Su madre y sus hermanos fueron a verlo, pero no pudieron acercarse a causa de la multitud.

20 Entonces le anunciaron a Jesús: «Tu madre y tus hermanos están ahí afuera y quieren verte».

21 Pero él les respondió: «Mi madre y mis hermanos son los que escuchan la Palabra de Dios y la practican».

22 Un día, Jesús subió con sus discípulos a una barca y les dijo: «Pasemos a la otra orilla del lago». Ellos partieron,

23 y mientras navegaban, Jesús se durmió. Entonces se desencadenó sobre el lago un fuerte vendaval; la barca se iba llenando de agua, y ellos corrían peligro.

24 Los discípulos se acercaron y lo despertaron, diciendo: «¡Maestro, Maestro, nos hundimos!». El se despertó e increpó al viento y a las olas; estas se apaciguaron y sobrevino la calma.

25 Después les dijo: «¿Dónde está la fe de ustedes?». Y ellos, llenos de temor y admiración, se decían unos a otros: «¿Quién es este que ordena incluso al viento y a las olas, y le obedecen?».

26 Después llegaron a la región de los gerasenos, que está situada frente a Galilea.

27 Jesús acababa de desembarcar, cuando salió a su encuentro un hombre de la ciudad, que estaba endemoniado. Desde hacía mucho tiempo no se vestía, y no vivía en una casa, sino en los sepulcros.

28 Al ver a Jesús, comenzó a gritar, cayó a sus pies y dijo con voz potente: «¿Qué quieres de mí, Jesús, Hijo de Dios, el Altísimo? Te ruego que no me atormentes».

29 Jesús, en efecto, estaba ordenando al espíritu impuro que saliera de aquel hombre. Muchas veces el espíritu se había apoderado de él, y aunque lo ataban con cadenas y grillos para sujetarlo, él rompía sus ligaduras y el demonio lo arrastraba a lugares desiertos.

30 Jesús le preguntó: «¿Cuál es tu nombre?». «Legión», respondió, porque eran muchos los demonios que habían entrado en él.,

31 Y le suplicaban que no les ordenara precipitarse al abismo.

32 Había allí una gran piara de cerdos que estaba paciendo en la montaña. Los demonios suplicaron a Jesús que les permitiera entrar en los cerdos. El se lo permitió.

33 Entonces salieron de aquel hombre, entraron en los cerdos, y desde lo alto del acantilado, la piara se precipitó al mar y se ahogó.

34 Al ver lo que había pasado, los cuidadores huyeron y difundieron la noticia en la ciudad y en los poblados.

35 En seguida la gente fue a ver lo que había sucedido. Cuando llegaron adonde estaba Jesús, vieron sentado a sus pies, vestido y en sus sano juicio, al hombre del que habían salido los demonios, y se llenaron de temor.

36 Los que habían presenciado el hecho les contaron cómo había sido curado el endemoniado.

37 Todos los gerasenos pidieron a Jesús que se alejará de allí, porque estaban atemorizados; y él, subiendo a la barca, regresó.

38 El hombre del que salieron los demonios le rogaba que lo llevara con él, pero Jesús lo despidió, diciéndole:

39 «Vuelve a tu casa y cuenta todo lo que Dios has hecho por ti». El se fue y proclamó en toda la ciudad lo que Jesús había hecho por él.

40 A su regreso, Jesús fue recibido por la multitud, porque todos lo estaban esperando.

41 De pronto, se presentó un hombre llamado Jairo, que era jefe de la sinagoga, y cayendo a los pies de Jesús, le suplicó que fuera a su casa,

42 porque su única hija, que tenía unos doce años, se estaba muriendo. Mientras iba, la multitud lo apretaba hasta sofocarlo.

43 Una mujer que padecía de hemorragias desde hacía doce años y a quien nadie había podido curar,

44 se acercó por detrás y tocó los flecos de su manto; inmediatamente cesó la hemorragia.

45 Jesús preguntó: «¿Quién me ha tocado?». Como todos lo negaban, Pedro y sus compañeros le dijeron: «Maestro, es la multitud que te está apretujando».

46 Pero Jesús respondió: «Alguien me ha tocado, porque he sentido que una fuerza salía de mí».

47 Al verse descubierta, la mujer se acercó temblando, y echándose a sus pies, contó delante de todos por qué lo había tocado y cómo fue curada instantáneamente.

49 Todavía estaba hablando, cuando llegó alguien de la casa del jefe de sinagoga y le dijo: «Tu hija ha muerto, no molestes más al Maestro».

50 Pero Jesús, que había oído, respondió: «No temas, basta que creas y se salvará».

51 Cuando llegó a la casa no permitió que nadie entrara con él, sino Pedro, Juan y Santiago, junto con el padre y la madre de la niña.

52 Todos lloraban y se lamentaban. «No lloren, dijo Jesús, no está muerta, sino que duerme».

53 Y se burlaban de él, porque sabían que la niña estaba muerta.

54 Pero Jesús la tomó de la mano y la llamó, diciendo: «Niña, levántate».

55 Ella recuperó el aliento y se levantó en el acto. Después Jesús ordenó que le dieran de comer.

56 Sus padres se quedaron asombrados, pero él les prohibió contar lo que había sucedido.

Chapter 8

1

1 Afterward he journeyed from one town and village to another, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. Accompanying him were the Twelve

2

and some women who had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,

3

Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their resources.

4

2 3 When a large crowd gathered, with people from one town after another journeying to him, he spoke in a parable.

5

“A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path and was trampled, and the birds of the sky ate it up.

6

Some seed fell on rocky ground, and when it grew, it withered for lack of moisture.

7

Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it.

8

And some seed fell on good soil, and when it grew, it produced fruit a hundredfold.” After saying this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.”

9

Then his disciples asked him what the meaning of this parable might be.

10

He answered, “Knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of God has been granted to you; but to the rest, they are made known through parables so that ‘they may look but not see, and hear but not understand.’

11

4 “This is the meaning of the parable. The seed is the word of God.

12

Those on the path are the ones who have heard, but the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts that they may not believe and be saved.

13

Those on rocky ground are the ones who, when they hear, receive the word with joy, but they have no root; they believe only for a time and fall away in time of trial.

14

As for the seed that fell among thorns, they are the ones who have heard, but as they go along, they are choked by the anxieties and riches and pleasures of life, and they fail to produce mature fruit.

15

But as for the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word, embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance.

16

5 “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.

17

For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.

18

Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”

19

Then his mother and his brothers 6 came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd.

20

He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you.”

21

He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.” 7

22

8 One day he got into a boat with his disciples and said to them, “Let us cross to the other side of the lake.” So they set sail,

23

and while they were sailing he fell asleep. A squall blew over the lake, and they were taking in water and were in danger.

24

They came and woke him saying, “Master, master, we are perishing!” He awakened, rebuked the wind and the waves, and they subsided and there was a calm.

25

Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” But they were filled with awe and amazed and said to one another, “Who then is this, who commands even the winds and the sea, and they obey him?”

26

Then they sailed to the territory of the Gerasenes, 9 which is opposite Galilee.

27

When he came ashore a man from the town who was possessed by demons met him. For a long time he had not worn clothes; he did not live in a house, but lived among the tombs.

28

When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him; in a loud voice he shouted, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me!”

29

For he had ordered the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (It had taken hold of him many times, and he used to be bound with chains and shackles as a restraint, but he would break his bonds and be driven by the demon into deserted places.)

30

Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” 10 He replied, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him.

31

And they pleaded with him not to order them to depart to the abyss. 11

32

A herd of many swine was feeding there on the hillside, and they pleaded with him to allow them to enter those swine; and he let them.

33

The demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.

34

When the swineherds saw what had happened, they ran away and reported the incident in the town and throughout the countryside.

35

People came out to see what had happened and, when they approached Jesus, they discovered the man from whom the demons had come out sitting at his feet. 12 He was clothed and in his right mind, and they were seized with fear.

36

Those who witnessed it told them how the possessed man had been saved.

37

The entire population of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them because they were seized with great fear. So he got into a boat and returned.

38

The man from whom the demons had come out begged to remain with him, but he sent him away, saying,

39

“Return home and recount what God has done for you.” The man went off and proclaimed throughout the whole town what Jesus had done for him.

40

13 When Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.

41

And a man named Jairus, an official of the synagogue, came forward. He fell at the feet of Jesus and begged him to come to his house,

42

because he had an only daughter, 14 about twelve years old, and she was dying. As he went, the crowds almost crushed him.

43

And a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years, 15 who (had spent her whole livelihood on doctors and) was unable to be cured by anyone,

44

came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. Immediately her bleeding stopped.

45

Jesus then asked, “Who touched me?” While all were denying it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are pushing and pressing in upon you.”

46

But Jesus said, “Someone has touched me; for I know that power has gone out from me.”

47

When the woman realized that she had not escaped notice, she came forward trembling. Falling down before him, she explained in the presence of all the people why she had touched him and how she had been healed immediately.

48

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

49

While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue official’s house arrived and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.”

50

On hearing this, Jesus answered him, “Do not be afraid; just have faith and she will be saved.”

51

When he arrived at the house he allowed no one to enter with him except Peter and John and James, and the child’s father and mother.

52

16 All were weeping and mourning for her, when he said, “Do not weep any longer, for she is not dead, but sleeping.”

53

And they ridiculed him, because they knew that she was dead.

54

But he took her by the hand and called to her, “Child, arise!”

55

Her breath returned and she immediately arose. He then directed that she should be given something to eat.

56

Her parents were astounded, and he instructed them to tell no one what had happened.


1 [1-3] Luke presents Jesus as an itinerant preacher traveling in the company of the Twelve and of the Galilean women who are sustaining them out of their means. These Galilean women will later accompany Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem and become witnesses to his death ( Luke 23:49) and resurrection ( Luke 24:9-11, where Mary Magdalene and Joanna are specifically mentioned; cf also  Acts 1:14). The association of women with the ministry of Jesus is most unusual in the light of the attitude of first-century Palestinian Judaism toward women. The more common attitude is expressed in  John 4:27, and early rabbinic documents caution against speaking with women in public.

2 [4-21] The focus in this section is on how one should hear the word of God and act on it. It includes the parable of the sower and its explanation ( Luke 8:4-15), a collection of sayings on how one should act on the word that is heard ( Luke 8:16-18), and the identification of the mother and brothers of Jesus as the ones who hear the word and act on it ( Luke 8:19-21). See also the notes on  Matthew 13:1-53 and  Mark 4:1-34.

3 [4-8] See the note on  Matthew 13:3-8.

4 [11-15] On the interpretation of the parable of the sower, see the note on  Matthew 13:18-23.

5 [16-18] These sayings continue the theme of responding to the word of God. Those who hear the word must become a light to others ( Luke 8:16); even the mysteries of the kingdom that have been made known to the disciples ( Luke 8:9-10) must come to light ( Luke 8:17); a generous and persevering response to the word of God leads to a still more perfect response to the word.

6 [19] His brothers: see the note on  Mark 6:3.

7 [21] The family of Jesus is not constituted by physical relationship with him but by obedience to the word of God. In this, Luke agrees with the Marcan parallel ( Mark 3:31-35), although by omitting  Mark 3:33 and especially  Mark 3:20-21 Luke has softened the Marcan picture of Jesus’ natural family. Probably he did this because Mary has already been presented in  Luke 1:38 as the obedient handmaid of the Lord who fulfills the requirement for belonging to the eschatological family of Jesus; cf also  Luke 11:27-28.

8 [22-56] This section records four miracles of Jesus that manifest his power and authority: (1) the calming of a storm on the lake ( Luke 8:22-25); (2) the exorcism of a demoniac ( Luke 8:26-39); (3) the cure of a hemorrhaging woman (Luke 8:40-48); (4) the raising of Jairus’s daughter to life (49-56). They parallel the same sequence of stories at  Mark 4:35- 5:43.

9 [26] Gerasenes: other manuscripts read Gadarenes or Gergesenes. See also the note on  Matthew 8:28. Opposite Galilee: probably Gentile territory (note the presence in the area of pigs – unclean animals to Jews) and an indication that the person who receives salvation ( Luke 8:36) is a Gentile.

10 [30] What is your name?: the question reflects the popular belief that knowledge of the spirit’s name brought control over the spirit. Legion: to Jesus’ question the demon replies with a Latin word transliterated into Greek. The Roman legion at this period consisted of 5,000 to 6,000 foot soldiers; hence the name implies a very large number of demons.

11 [31] Abyss: the place of the dead ( Romans 10:7) or the prison of Satan ( Rev 20:3) or the subterranean “watery deep” that symbolizes the chaos before the order imposed by creation ( Genesis 1:2).

12 [35] Sitting at his feet: the former demoniac takes the position of a disciple before the master ( Luke 10:39;  Acts 22:3).

13 [40-56] Two interwoven miracle stories, one a healing and the other a resuscitation, present Jesus as master over sickness and death. In the Lucan account, faith in Jesus is responsible for the cure ( Luke 8:48) and for the raising to life (Luke 8:50).

14 [42] An only daughter: cf the son of the widow of Nain whom Luke describes as an “only” son ( Luke 7:12; see also  Luke 9:38).

15 [43] Afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years: according to the Mosaic law ( Lev 15:25-30) this condition would render the woman unclean and unfit for contact with other people.

16 [52] Sleeping: her death is a temporary condition; cf  John 11:11-14.

5

“A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path and was trampled, and the birds of the sky ate it up.

6

Some seed fell on rocky ground, and when it grew, it withered for lack of moisture.

7

Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it.

8

And some seed fell on good soil, and when it grew, it produced fruit a hundredfold.” After saying this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.”

9

Then his disciples asked him what the meaning of this parable might be.

10

He answered, “Knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of God has been granted to you; but to the rest, they are made known through parables so that ‘they may look but not see, and hear but not understand.’

11

4 “This is the meaning of the parable. The seed is the word of God.

12

Those on the path are the ones who have heard, but the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts that they may not believe and be saved.

13

Those on rocky ground are the ones who, when they hear, receive the word with joy, but they have no root; they believe only for a time and fall away in time of trial.

15

But as for the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word, embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance.

16

5 “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.

17

For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.

18

Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”

19

Then his mother and his brothers 6 came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd.

20

He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you.”

21

He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.” 7

22

8 One day he got into a boat with his disciples and said to them, “Let us cross to the other side of the lake.” So they set sail,

47

When the woman realized that she had not escaped notice, she came forward trembling. Falling down before him, she explained in the presence of all the people why she had touched him and how she had been healed immediately.

48

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

49

While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue official’s house arrived and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.”

50

On hearing this, Jesus answered him, “Do not be afraid; just have faith and she will be saved.”

51

When he arrived at the house he allowed no one to enter with him except Peter and John and James, and the child’s father and mother.

52

16 All were weeping and mourning for her, when he said, “Do not weep any longer, for she is not dead, but sleeping.”

53

And they ridiculed him, because they knew that she was dead.

54

But he took her by the hand and called to her, “Child, arise!”

55

Her breath returned and she immediately arose. He then directed that she should be given something to eat.

56

Her parents were astounded, and he instructed them to tell no one what had happened.

3 [4-8] See the note on  Matthew 13:3-8.

4 [11-15] On the interpretation of the parable of the sower, see the note on  Matthew 13:18-23.

5 [16-18] These sayings continue the theme of responding to the word of God. Those who hear the word must become a light to others ( Luke 8:16); even the mysteries of the kingdom that have been made known to the disciples ( Luke 8:9-10) must come to light ( Luke 8:17); a generous and persevering response to the word of God leads to a still more perfect response to the word.

6 [19] His brothers: see the note on  Mark 6:3.

7 [21] The family of Jesus is not constituted by physical relationship with him but by obedience to the word of God. In this, Luke agrees with the Marcan parallel ( Mark 3:31-35), although by omitting  Mark 3:33 and especially  Mark 3:20-21 Luke has softened the Marcan picture of Jesus’ natural family. Probably he did this because Mary has already been presented in  Luke 1:38 as the obedient handmaid of the Lord who fulfills the requirement for belonging to the eschatological family of Jesus; cf also  Luke 11:27-28.

8 [22-56] This section records four miracles of Jesus that manifest his power and authority: (1) the calming of a storm on the lake ( Luke 8:22-25); (2) the exorcism of a demoniac ( Luke 8:26-39); (3) the cure of a hemorrhaging woman (Luke 8:40-48); (4) the raising of Jairus’s daughter to life (49-56). They parallel the same sequence of stories at  Mark 4:35- 5:43.

9 [26] Gerasenes: other manuscripts read Gadarenes or Gergesenes. See also the note on  Matthew 8:28. Opposite Galilee: probably Gentile territory (note the presence in the area of pigs – unclean animals to Jews) and an indication that the person who receives salvation ( Luke 8:36) is a Gentile.

10 [30] What is your name?: the question reflects the popular belief that knowledge of the spirit’s name brought control over the spirit. Legion: to Jesus’ question the demon replies with a Latin word transliterated into Greek. The Roman legion at this period consisted of 5,000 to 6,000 foot soldiers; hence the name implies a very large number of demons.

11 [31] Abyss: the place of the dead ( Romans 10:7) or the prison of Satan ( Rev 20:3) or the subterranean “watery deep” that symbolizes the chaos before the order imposed by creation ( Genesis 1:2).

12 [35] Sitting at his feet: the former demoniac takes the position of a disciple before the master ( Luke 10:39;  Acts 22:3).

13 [40-56] Two interwoven miracle stories, one a healing and the other a resuscitation, present Jesus as master over sickness and death. In the Lucan account, faith in Jesus is responsible for the cure ( Luke 8:48) and for the raising to life (Luke 8:50).

14 [42] An only daughter: cf the son of the widow of Nain whom Luke describes as an “only” son ( Luke 7:12; see also  Luke 9:38).

15 [43] Afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years: according to the Mosaic law ( Lev 15:25-30) this condition would render the woman unclean and unfit for contact with other people.

16 [52] Sleeping: her death is a temporary condition; cf  John 11:11-14.

Vangelo secondo Luca

Capitolo 8

[1] In seguito egli se ne andava per le città e i villaggi, predicando e annunziando la buona novella del regno di Dio. 
[2] C’erano con lui i Dodici e alcune donne che erano state guarite da spiriti cattivi e da infermità: Maria di Màgdala, dalla quale erano usciti sette demòni, 
[3] Giovanna, moglie di Cusa, amministratore di Erode, Susanna e molte altre, che li assistevano con i loro beni. 
[4] Poiché una gran folla si radunava e accorreva a lui gente da ogni città, disse con una parabola: 
[5] “Il seminatore uscì a seminare la sua semente. Mentre seminava, parte cadde lungo la strada e fu calpestata, e gli uccelli del cielo la divorarono. 
[6] Un’altra parte cadde sulla pietra e appena germogliata inaridì per mancanza di umidità. 
[7] Un’altra cadde in mezzo alle spine e le spine, cresciute insieme con essa, la soffocarono. 
[8] Un’altra cadde sulla terra buona, germogliò e fruttò cento volte tanto”. Detto questo, esclamò: “Chi ha orecchi per intendere, intenda!”. 
[9] I suoi discepoli lo interrogarono sul significato della parabola. 
[10] Ed egli disse: “A voi è dato conoscere i misteri del regno di Dio, ma agli altri solo in parabole, perchè 
vedendo non vedano 
e udendo non intendano. 
[11] Il significato della parabola è questo: Il seme è la parola di Dio. 
[12] I semi caduti lungo la strada sono coloro che l’hanno ascoltata, ma poi viene il diavolo e porta via la parola dai loro cuori, perché non credano e così siano salvati. 
[13] Quelli sulla pietra sono coloro che, quando ascoltano, accolgono con gioia la parola, ma non hanno radice; credono per un certo tempo, ma nell’ora della tentazione vengono meno. 
[14] Il seme caduto in mezzo alle spine sono coloro che, dopo aver ascoltato, strada facendo si lasciano sopraffare dalle preoccupazioni, dalla ricchezza e dai piaceri della vita e non giungono a maturazione. 
[15] Il seme caduto sulla terra buona sono coloro che, dopo aver ascoltato la parola con cuore buono e perfetto, la custodiscono e producono frutto con la loro perseveranza. 
[16] Nessuno accende una lampada e la copre con un vaso o la pone sotto un letto; la pone invece su un lampadario, perché chi entra veda la luce. 
[17] Non c’è nulla di nascosto che non debba essere manifestato, nulla di segreto che non debba essere conosciuto e venire in piena luce. 
[18] Fate attenzione dunque a come ascoltate; perché a chi ha sarà dato, ma a chi non ha sarà tolto anche ciò che crede di avere”. 
[19] Un giorno andarono a trovarlo la madre e i fratelli, ma non potevano avvicinarlo a causa della folla. 
[20] Gli fu annunziato: “Tua madre e i tuoi fratelli sono qui fuori e desiderano vederti”. 
[21] Ma egli rispose: “Mia madre e miei fratelli sono coloro che ascoltano la parola di Dio e la mettono in pratica”. 
[22] Un giorno salì su una barca con i suoi discepoli e disse: “Passiamo all’altra riva del lago”. Presero il largo. 
[23] Ora, mentre navigavano, egli si addormentò. Un turbine di vento si abbatté sul lago, imbarcavano acqua ed erano in pericolo. 
[24] Accostatisi a lui, lo svegliarono dicendo: “Maestro, maestro, siamo perduti!”. E lui, destatosi, sgridò il vento e i flutti minacciosi; essi cessarono e si fece bonaccia. 
[25] Allora disse loro: “Dov’è la vostra fede?”. Essi intimoriti e meravigliati si dicevano l’un l’altro: “Chi è dunque costui che dà ordini ai venti e all’acqua e gli obbediscono?”. 
[26] Approdarono nella regione dei Gerasèni, che sta di fronte alla Galilea. 
[27] Era appena sceso a terra, quando gli venne incontro un uomo della città posseduto dai demòni. Da molto tempo non portava vestiti, né abitava in casa, ma nei sepolcri. 
[28] Alla vista di Gesù gli si gettò ai piedi urlando e disse a gran voce: “Che vuoi da me, Gesù, Figlio del Dio Altissimo? Ti prego, non tormentarmi!”. 
[29] Gesù infatti stava ordinando allo spirito immondo di uscire da quell’uomo. Molte volte infatti s’era impossessato di lui; allora lo legavano con catene e lo custodivano in ceppi, ma egli spezzava i legami e veniva spinto dal demonio in luoghi deserti. 
[30] Gesù gli domandò: “Qual è il tuo nome?”. Rispose: “Legione”, perché molti demòni erano entrati in lui. 
[31] E lo supplicavano che non ordinasse loro di andarsene nell’abisso. 
[32] Vi era là un numeroso branco di porci che pascolavano sul monte. Lo pregarono che concedesse loro di entrare nei porci; ed egli lo permise. 
[33] I demòni uscirono dall’uomo ed entrarono nei porci e quel branco corse a gettarsi a precipizio dalla rupe nel lago e annegò. 
[34] Quando videro ciò che era accaduto, i mandriani fuggirono e portarono la notizia nella città e nei villaggi. 
[35] La gente uscì per vedere l’accaduto, arrivarono da Gesù e trovarono l’uomo dal quale erano usciti i demòni vestito e sano di mente, che sedeva ai piedi di Gesù; e furono presi da spavento. 
[36] Quelli che erano stati spettatori riferirono come l’indemoniato era stato guarito. 
[37] Allora tutta la popolazione del territorio dei Gerasèni gli chiese che si allontanasse da loro, perché avevano molta paura. Gesù, salito su una barca, tornò indietro. 
[38] L’uomo dal quale erano usciti i demòni gli chiese di restare con lui, ma egli lo congedò dicendo: 
[39] “Torna a casa tua e racconta quello che Dio ti ha fatto”. L’uomo se ne andò, proclamando per tutta la città quello che Gesù gli aveva fatto. 
[40] Al suo ritorno, Gesù fu accolto dalla folla, poiché tutti erano in attesa di lui. 
[41] Ed ecco venne un uomo di nome Giàiro, che era capo della sinagoga: gettatosi ai piedi di Gesù, lo pregava di recarsi a casa sua, 
[42] perché aveva un’unica figlia, di circa dodici anni, che stava per morire. Durante il cammino, le folle gli si accalcavano attorno. 
[43] Una donna che soffriva di emorragia da dodici anni, e che nessuno era riuscito a guarire, 
[44] gli si avvicinò alle spalle e gli toccò il lembo del mantello e subito il flusso di sangue si arrestò. 
[45] Gesù disse: “Chi mi ha toccato?”. Mentre tutti negavano, Pietro disse: “Maestro, la folla ti stringe da ogni parte e ti schiaccia”. 
[46] Ma Gesù disse: “Qualcuno mi ha toccato. Ho sentito che una forza è uscita da me”. 
[47] Allora la donna, vedendo che non poteva rimanere nascosta, si fece avanti tremando e, gettatasi ai suoi piedi, dichiarò davanti a tutto il popolo il motivo per cui l’aveva toccato, e come era stata subito guarita. 
[48] Egli le disse: “Figlia, la tua fede ti ha salvata, và in pace!”. 
[49] Stava ancora parlando quando venne uno della casa del capo della sinagoga a dirgli: “Tua figlia è morta, non disturbare più il maestro”. 
[50] Ma Gesù che aveva udito rispose: “Non temere, soltanto abbi fede e sarà salvata”. 
[51] Giunto alla casa, non lasciò entrare nessuno con sé, all’infuori di Pietro, Giovanni e Giacomo e il padre e la madre della fanciulla. 
[52] Tutti piangevano e facevano il lamento su di lei. Gesù disse: “Non piangete, perché non è morta, ma dorme”. 
[53] Essi lo deridevano, sapendo che era morta, 
[54] ma egli, prendendole la mano, disse ad alta voce: “Fanciulla, alzati!”. 
[55] Il suo spirito ritornò in lei ed ella si alzò all’istante. Egli ordinò di darle da mangiare. 
[56] I genitori ne furono sbalorditi, ma egli raccomandò loro di non raccontare a nessuno ciò che era accaduto.

Chapter 8

Audio Español latino:Mary luz Valderrama

1

1 Afterward he journeyed from one town and village to another, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. Accompanying him were the Twelve

2

and some women who had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,

3

Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their resources.

4

2 3 When a large crowd gathered, with people from one town after another journeying to him, he spoke in a parable.

5

“A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path and was trampled, and the birds of the sky ate it up.

6

Some seed fell on rocky ground, and when it grew, it withered for lack of moisture.

7

Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it.

8

And some seed fell on good soil, and when it grew, it produced fruit a hundredfold.” After saying this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.”

9

Then his disciples asked him what the meaning of this parable might be.

10

He answered, “Knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of God has been granted to you; but to the rest, they are made known through parables so that ‘they may look but not see, and hear but not understand.’

11

4 “This is the meaning of the parable. The seed is the word of God.

12

Those on the path are the ones who have heard, but the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts that they may not believe and be saved.

13

Those on rocky ground are the ones who, when they hear, receive the word with joy, but they have no root; they believe only for a time and fall away in time of trial.

14

As for the seed that fell among thorns, they are the ones who have heard, but as they go along, they are choked by the anxieties and riches and pleasures of life, and they fail to produce mature fruit.

15

But as for the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word, embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance.

16

5 “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.

17

For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.

18

Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”

19

Then his mother and his brothers 6 came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd.

20

He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you.”

21

He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.” 7

22

8 One day he got into a boat with his disciples and said to them, “Let us cross to the other side of the lake.” So they set sail,

23

and while they were sailing he fell asleep. A squall blew over the lake, and they were taking in water and were in danger.

24

They came and woke him saying, “Master, master, we are perishing!” He awakened, rebuked the wind and the waves, and they subsided and there was a calm.

25

Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” But they were filled with awe and amazed and said to one another, “Who then is this, who commands even the winds and the sea, and they obey him?”

26

Then they sailed to the territory of the Gerasenes, 9 which is opposite Galilee.

27

When he came ashore a man from the town who was possessed by demons met him. For a long time he had not worn clothes; he did not live in a house, but lived among the tombs.

28

When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him; in a loud voice he shouted, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me!”

29

For he had ordered the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (It had taken hold of him many times, and he used to be bound with chains and shackles as a restraint, but he would break his bonds and be driven by the demon into deserted places.)

30

Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” 10 He replied, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him.

31

And they pleaded with him not to order them to depart to the abyss. 11

32

A herd of many swine was feeding there on the hillside, and they pleaded with him to allow them to enter those swine; and he let them.

33

The demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.

34

When the swineherds saw what had happened, they ran away and reported the incident in the town and throughout the countryside.

35

People came out to see what had happened and, when they approached Jesus, they discovered the man from whom the demons had come out sitting at his feet. 12 He was clothed and in his right mind, and they were seized with fear.

36

Those who witnessed it told them how the possessed man had been saved.

37

The entire population of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them because they were seized with great fear. So he got into a boat and returned.

38

The man from whom the demons had come out begged to remain with him, but he sent him away, saying,

39

“Return home and recount what God has done for you.” The man went off and proclaimed throughout the whole town what Jesus had done for him.

40

13 When Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.

41

And a man named Jairus, an official of the synagogue, came forward. He fell at the feet of Jesus and begged him to come to his house,

42

because he had an only daughter, 14 about twelve years old, and she was dying. As he went, the crowds almost crushed him.

43

And a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years, 15 who (had spent her whole livelihood on doctors and) was unable to be cured by anyone,

44

came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. Immediately her bleeding stopped.

45

Jesus then asked, “Who touched me?” While all were denying it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are pushing and pressing in upon you.”

46

But Jesus said, “Someone has touched me; for I know that power has gone out from me.”

47

When the woman realized that she had not escaped notice, she came forward trembling. Falling down before him, she explained in the presence of all the people why she had touched him and how she had been healed immediately.

48

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

49

While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue official’s house arrived and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.”

50

On hearing this, Jesus answered him, “Do not be afraid; just have faith and she will be saved.”

51

When he arrived at the house he allowed no one to enter with him except Peter and John and James, and the child’s father and mother.

52

16 All were weeping and mourning for her, when he said, “Do not weep any longer, for she is not dead, but sleeping.”

53

And they ridiculed him, because they knew that she was dead.

54

But he took her by the hand and called to her, “Child, arise!”

55

Her breath returned and she immediately arose. He then directed that she should be given something to eat.

56

Her parents were astounded, and he instructed them to tell no one what had happened.

 

 



1 [1-3] Luke presents Jesus as an itinerant preacher traveling in the company of the Twelve and of the Galilean women who are sustaining them out of their means. These Galilean women will later accompany Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem and become witnesses to his death ( Luke 23:49) and resurrection ( Luke 24:9-11, where Mary Magdalene and Joanna are specifically mentioned; cf also  Acts 1:14). The association of women with the ministry of Jesus is most unusual in the light of the attitude of first-century Palestinian Judaism toward women. The more common attitude is expressed in  John 4:27, and early rabbinic documents caution against speaking with women in public.

2 [4-21] The focus in this section is on how one should hear the word of God and act on it. It includes the parable of the sower and its explanation ( Luke 8:4-15), a collection of sayings on how one should act on the word that is heard ( Luke 8:16-18), and the identification of the mother and brothers of Jesus as the ones who hear the word and act on it ( Luke 8:19-21). See also the notes on  Matthew 13:1-53 and  Mark 4:1-34.

3 [4-8] See the note on  Matthew 13:3-8.

4 [11-15] On the interpretation of the parable of the sower, see the note on  Matthew 13:18-23.

5 [16-18] These sayings continue the theme of responding to the word of God. Those who hear the word must become a light to others ( Luke 8:16); even the mysteries of the kingdom that have been made known to the disciples ( Luke 8:9-10) must come to light ( Luke 8:17); a generous and persevering response to the word of God leads to a still more perfect response to the word.

6 [19] His brothers: see the note on  Mark 6:3.

7 [21] The family of Jesus is not constituted by physical relationship with him but by obedience to the word of God. In this, Luke agrees with the Marcan parallel ( Mark 3:31-35), although by omitting  Mark 3:33 and especially  Mark 3:20-21 Luke has softened the Marcan picture of Jesus’ natural family. Probably he did this because Mary has already been presented in  Luke 1:38 as the obedient handmaid of the Lord who fulfills the requirement for belonging to the eschatological family of Jesus; cf also  Luke 11:27-28.

8 [22-56] This section records four miracles of Jesus that manifest his power and authority: (1) the calming of a storm on the lake ( Luke 8:22-25); (2) the exorcism of a demoniac ( Luke 8:26-39); (3) the cure of a hemorrhaging woman (Luke 8:40-48); (4) the raising of Jairus’s daughter to life (49-56). They parallel the same sequence of stories at  Mark 4:35- 5:43.

9 [26] Gerasenes: other manuscripts read Gadarenes or Gergesenes. See also the note on  Matthew 8:28. Opposite Galilee: probably Gentile territory (note the presence in the area of pigs – unclean animals to Jews) and an indication that the person who receives salvation ( Luke 8:36) is a Gentile.

The Roman legion at this period consisted of 5,000 to 6,000 foot soldiers; hence the name implies a very large number of demons.

11 [31] Abyss: the place of the dead ( Romans 10:7) or the prison of Satan ( Rev 20:3) or the subterranean “watery deep” that symbolizes the chaos before the order imposed by creation ( Genesis 1:2).

12 [35] Sitting at his feet: the former demoniac takes the position of a disciple before the master ( Luke 10:39;  Acts 22:3).

13 [40-56] Two interwoven miracle stories, one a healing and the other a resuscitation, present Jesus as master over sickness and death. In the Lucan account, faith in Jesus is responsible for the cure ( Luke 8:48) and for the raising to life (Luke 8:50).

14 [42] An only daughter: cf the son of the widow of Nain whom Luke describes as an “only” son ( Luke 7:12; see also  Luke 9:38).

15 [43] Afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years: according to the Mosaic law ( Lev 15:25-30) this condition would render the woman unclean and unfit for contact with other people.

13 When Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.

41

And a man named Jairus, an official of the synagogue, came forward. He fell at the feet of Jesus and begged him to come to his house,

42

because he had an only daughter, 14 about twelve years old, and she was dying. As he went, the crowds almost crushed him.

43

And a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years, 15 who (had spent her whole livelihood on doctors and) was unable to be cured by anyone,

44

came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. Immediately her bleeding stopped.

45

Jesus then asked, “Who touched me?” While all were denying it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are pushing and pressing in upon you.”

46

But Jesus said, “Someone has touched me; for I know that power has gone out from me.”

47

When the woman realized that she had not escaped notice, she came forward trembling. Falling down before him, she explained in the presence of all the people why she had touched him and how she had been healed immediately.

48

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

49

While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue official’s house arrived and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.”

50

On hearing this, Jesus answered him, “Do not be afraid; just have faith and she will be saved.”

51

When he arrived at the house he allowed no one to enter with him except Peter and John and James, and the child’s father and mother.

52

16 All were weeping and mourning for her, when he said, “Do not weep any longer, for she is not dead, but sleeping.”

53

And they ridiculed him, because they knew that she was dead.

54

But he took her by the hand and called to her, “Child, arise!”

55

Her breath returned and she immediately arose. He then directed that she should be given something to eat.

56

Her parents were astounded, and he instructed them to tell no one what had happened.

 

 



1 [1-3] Luke presents Jesus as an itinerant preacher traveling in the company of the Twelve and of the Galilean women who are sustaining them out of their means. These Galilean women will later accompany Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem and become witnesses to his death ( Luke 23:49) and resurrection ( Luke 24:9-11, where Mary Magdalene and Joanna are specifically mentioned; cf also  Acts 1:14). The association of women with the ministry of Jesus is most unusual in the light of the attitude of first-century Palestinian Judaism toward women. The more common attitude is expressed in  John 4:27, and early rabbinic documents caution against speaking with women in public.

2 [4-21] The focus in this section is on how one should hear the word of God and act on it. It includes the parable of the sower and its explanation ( Luke 8:4-15), a collection of sayings on how one should act on the word that is heard ( Luke 8:16-18), and the identification of the mother and brothers of Jesus as the ones who hear the word and act on it ( Luke 8:19-21). See also the notes on  Matthew 13:1-53 and  Mark 4:1-34.

3 [4-8] See the note on  Matthew 13:3-8.

4 [11-15] On the interpretation of the parable of the sower, see the note on  Matthew 13:18-23.

5 [16-18] These sayings continue the theme of responding to the word of God. Those who hear the word must become a light to others ( Luke 8:16); even the mysteries of the kingdom that have been made known to the disciples ( Luke 8:9-10) must come to light ( Luke 8:17); a generous and persevering response to the word of God leads to a still more perfect response to the word.

6 [19] His brothers: see the note on  Mark 6:3.

7 [21] The family of Jesus is not constituted by physical relationship with him but by obedience to the word of God. In this, Luke agrees with the Marcan parallel ( Mark 3:31-35), although by omitting  Mark 3:33 and especially  Mark 3:20-21 Luke has softened the Marcan picture of Jesus’ natural family. Probably he did this because Mary has already been presented in  Luke 1:38 as the obedient handmaid of the Lord who fulfills the requirement for belonging to the eschatological family of Jesus; cf also  Luke 11:27-28.

8 [22-56] This section records four miracles of Jesus that manifest his power and authority: (1) the calming of a storm on the lake ( Luke 8:22-25); (2) the exorcism of a demoniac ( Luke 8:26-39); (3) the cure of a hemorrhaging woman (Luke 8:40-48); (4) the raising of Jairus’s daughter to life (49-56). They parallel the same sequence of stories at  Mark 4:35- 5:43.

9 [26] Gerasenes: other manuscripts read Gadarenes or Gergesenes. See also the note on  Matthew 8:28. Opposite Galilee: probably Gentile territory (note the presence in the area of pigs – unclean animals to Jews) and an indication that the person who receives salvation ( Luke 8:36) is a Gentile.

10 [30] What is your name?: the question reflects the popular belief that knowledge of the spirit’s name brought control over the spirit. Legion: to Jesus’ question the demon replies with a Latin word transliterated into Greek. The Roman legion at this period consisted of 5,000 to 6,000 foot soldiers; hence the name implies a very large number of demons.

11 [31] Abyss: the place of the dead ( Romans 10:7) or the prison of Satan ( Rev 20:3) or the subterranean “watery deep” that symbolizes the chaos before the order imposed by creation ( Genesis 1:2).

12 [35] Sitting at his feet: the former demoniac takes the position of a disciple before the master ( Luke 10:39;  Acts 22:3).

13 [40-56] Two interwoven miracle stories, one a healing and the other a resuscitation, present Jesus as master over sickness and death. In the Lucan account, faith in Jesus is responsible for the cure ( Luke 8:48) and for the raising to life (Luke 8:50).

14 [42] An only daughter: cf the son of the widow of Nain whom Luke describes as an “only” son ( Luke 7:12; see also  Luke 9:38).

15 [43] Afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years: according to the Mosaic law ( Lev 15:25-30) this condition would render the woman unclean and unfit for contact with other people.

16 [52] Sleeping: her death is a temporary condition; cf  John 11:11-14.

Luke

Chapter 8

Audio Español latino:Mary luz Valderrama

1

1 Afterward he journeyed from one town and village to another, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. Accompanying him were the Twelve

2

and some women who had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,

3

Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their resources.

4

2 3 When a large crowd gathered, with people from one town after another journeying to him, he spoke in a parable.

5

“A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path and was trampled, and the birds of the sky ate it up.

6

Some seed fell on rocky ground, and when it grew, it withered for lack of moisture.

7

Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it.

8

And some seed fell on good soil, and when it grew, it produced fruit a hundredfold.” After saying this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.”

9

Then his disciples asked him what the meaning of this parable might be.

10

He answered, “Knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of God has been granted to you; but to the rest, they are made known through parables so that ‘they may look but not see, and hear but not understand.’

11

4 “This is the meaning of the parable. The seed is the word of God.

12

Those on the path are the ones who have heard, but the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts that they may not believe and be saved.

13

Those on rocky ground are the ones who, when they hear, receive the word with joy, but they have no root; they believe only for a time and fall away in time of trial.

14

As for the seed that fell among thorns, they are the ones who have heard, but as they go along, they are choked by the anxieties and riches and pleasures of life, and they fail to produce mature fruit.

15

But as for the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word, embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance.

16

5 “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.

17

For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.

18

Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”

19

Then his mother and his brothers 6 came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd.

20

He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you.”

21

He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.” 7

22

8 One day he got into a boat with his disciples and said to them, “Let us cross to the other side of the lake.” So they set sail,

23

and while they were sailing he fell asleep. A squall blew over the lake, and they were taking in water and were in danger.

24

They came and woke him saying, “Master, master, we are perishing!” He awakened, rebuked the wind and the waves, and they subsided and there was a calm.

25

Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” But they were filled with awe and amazed and said to one another, “Who then is this, who commands even the winds and the sea, and they obey him?”

26

Then they sailed to the territory of the Gerasenes, 9 which is opposite Galilee.

27

When he came ashore a man from the town who was possessed by demons met him. For a long time he had not worn clothes; he did not live in a house, but lived among the tombs.

28

When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him; in a loud voice he shouted, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me!”

29

For he had ordered the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (It had taken hold of him many times, and he used to be bound with chains and shackles as a restraint, but he would break his bonds and be driven by the demon into deserted places.)

30

Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” 10 He replied, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him.

31

And they pleaded with him not to order them to depart to the abyss. 11

32

A herd of many swine was feeding there on the hillside, and they pleaded with him to allow them to enter those swine; and he let them.

33

The demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.

34

When the swineherds saw what had happened, they ran away and reported the incident in the town and throughout the countryside.

35

People came out to see what had happened and, when they approached Jesus, they discovered the man from whom the demons had come out sitting at his feet. 12 He was clothed and in his right mind, and they were seized with fear.

36

Those who witnessed it told them how the possessed man had been saved.

37

The entire population of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them because they were seized with great fear. So he got into a boat and returned.

38

The man from whom the demons had come out begged to remain with him, but he sent him away, saying,

39

“Return home and recount what God has done for you.” The man went off and proclaimed throughout the whole town what Jesus had done for him.

40

13 When Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.

41

And a man named Jairus, an official of the synagogue, came forward. He fell at the feet of Jesus and begged him to come to his house,

42

because he had an only daughter, 14 about twelve years old, and she was dying. As he went, the crowds almost crushed him.

43

And a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years, 15 who (had spent her whole livelihood on doctors and) was unable to be cured by anyone,

44

came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. Immediately her bleeding stopped.

45

Jesus then asked, “Who touched me?” While all were denying it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are pushing and pressing in upon you.”

46

But Jesus said, “Someone has touched me; for I know that power has gone out from me.”

47

When the woman realized that she had not escaped notice, she came forward trembling. Falling down before him, she explained in the presence of all the people why she had touched him and how she had been healed immediately.

48

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

49

While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue official’s house arrived and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.”

50

On hearing this, Jesus answered him, “Do not be afraid; just have faith and she will be saved.”

51

When he arrived at the house he allowed no one to enter with him except Peter and John and James, and the child’s father and mother.

52

16 All were weeping and mourning for her, when he said, “Do not weep any longer, for she is not dead, but sleeping.”

53

And they ridiculed him, because they knew that she was dead.

54

But he took her by the hand and called to her, “Child, arise!”

55

Her breath returned and she immediately arose. He then directed that she should be given something to eat.

56

Her parents were astounded, and he instructed them to tell no one what had happened.
