Jesus Heals a Boy with an Unclean Spirit

37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Luke 9:37

Commentary on Luke 9:37-42

(Read Luke 9:37-42)

How deplorable the case of this child! He was under the power of an evil spirit. Disease of that nature are more frightful than such as arise merely from natural causes. What mischief Satan does where he gets possession! But happy those that have access to Christ! He can do that for us which his disciples cannot. A word from Christ healed the child; and when our children recover from sickness, it is comfortable to receive them as healed by the hand of Christ.
