Matthew 17:14 - 17:21

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

The passage of Matthew 17:14-21 recounts Jesus healing a demon-possessed boy after his disciples were unable to do so. Despite the boy's possessed state not being explicitly mentioned, it appears he suffered from epilepsy. When the man brings his son to Jesus, he expresses his frustration with the disciples' inability to help. The passage highlights how God allows evil spirits to act within certain limits and ultimately shows Jesus' divine power over the demonic realm.
