Casting Out A Foul Spirit
by Wayne Blank
"They brought unto Him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils"
Jesus Christ miraculously healed many people of what physically ailed them. The Messiah also healed many of what spiritually ailed them, including this example of a boy who was infected with a "foul spirit." The original Greek word, which is translated into English as "foul," is pronounced ack-ath-ar-tos. It means lewd in thought or behavior.
"And when He came to His disciples, He saw a great multitude about them, and the Scribes questioning with them. And straightway all the people, when they beheld Him, were greatly amazed, and running to Him saluted Him."
