"He has power to order evil spirits out of people."

Jesus went to the town of Capernaum in Galilee and taught the people on the Sabbath.  His teaching amazed them because he spoke with power.  There in the Jewish meeting place was a man with an evil spirit.  He yelled out, "Hey, Jesus of Nazareth, what do you want with us?  Are you here to get rid of us?  I know who you are!  You are God's Holy One." 

Jesus ordered the evil spirit to be quiet and come out.  The demon threw the man to the ground in front of everyone and left without harming him.

They all were amazed and kept saying to each other, "What kind of teaching is this?  He has power to order evil spirits out of people!"  News about Jesus spread all over that part of the country.
