The Gospel highlights the demonic ( Where do demons come from? Demons are fallen angels who serve satan. Revelation 12: 8 – 9 “ But they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. “ We are in a spiritual battle with evil spirits – satan and his fallen angels – Ephesians 6: 11 – 12 ),
not because its author attributed many more conditions to that cause than we would, but also out of the desire to portray all Jesus activity – Whether teaching, healing or exorcising – as a life-and-death struggle with the powers opposed to God for the freedom and enhancement of human life.
The Gospel in Mark 1: 29 – 39, stresses the eagerness of the crowd to access the power of Jesus – Both on this evening and then after his brief moment of retirement to a lonely place to pray. It dramatizes in this way the desperation of the human condition and the sense that Jesus and he alone can provide the liberation they so deeply desire. So, from the family of Simon and the afflicted people of Capernaum, Jesus moves on ” to the neighboring towns ” to because as he says ” It is for this that I came out ” – came out from Nazareth ” came out ” more radically as the Son of God to confront and overcome the evil of the world – John 16: 33.
