Â As the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various kinds of diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on each of them and cured them. Demons also came out of many, shouting, â€œYou are the Son of God!â€ But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Messiah.
Â At daybreak he departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowds were looking for him; and when they reached him, they wanted to prevent him from leaving them. But he said to them, â€œI must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose.â€ So he continued proclaiming the message in the synagogues of Judea.
