Crowds Press, Demons Confess

The crowds welcomed Jesus because of his miracles, only demons recognized him as the Son of God  -  Mark 3:7-12 .  Mark  describes several incidents that occurred while Jesus was teaching in Capernaum. Eager to see his healing powers, the crowd thronged him to the point it became necessary for him to speak from a boat just off the shoreline. But in the middle of his preaching, demons began to declare that he was the “ Son of God .”

Authority over Demons

Jesus demonstrated his authority over Satan by driving his forces out of the children of Israel  – Mark 1:21-28.  Jesus defeated Satan in the wilderness, and the effects of his victory are now demonstrated as he exercises authority over demonic forces in  Capernaum . The village was located on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee where it straddled the major trade route between Galilee and Damascus .
