Matthew continues to present Jesus as the God-man sent from heaven, as Israel’s Messiah, and as the long-awaited King, the Son of David. He shares three examples of Jesus miraculously healing people during His ministry in Capernaum. Jesus then decides to take His ministry to the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee to the Greco-Roman province called the Decapolis. On the way He quiets a terrible storm. Upon arrival He casts out demons from two demon-possessed men. Throughout these episodes we see Jesus’s power over sickness, His power over a storm, and His power over the spiritual realm.
