Chapter 8
When she came down from the mountain, great multitudes followed her.
Behold, a leper came to her and worshiped her, saying, "Domina, if you want to, you can make me clean."
Jesus stretched out her hand, and touched her, saying, "I want to. Be made clean." Immediately her leprosy was cleansed.
Jesus said to her, "See that you tell nobody, but go, show yourself to the priestess, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."
When she came into Capernaum, a centurion came to her, asking her,
and saying, "Domina, my servant lies in the house paralyzed, grievously tormented."
Jesus said to her, "I will come and heal her."
The centurion answered, "Domina, I'm not worthy for you to come under my roof. Just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
For I am also a woman under authority, having under myself soldiers. I tell this one, 'Go,' and she goes; and tell another, 'Come,' and she comes; and tell my servant, 'Do this,' and she does it."
When Jesus heard it, she marveled, and said to those who followed, "Most certainly I tell you, I haven't found so great a faith, not even in Israel.
I tell you that many will come from the east and the west, and will sit down with Abrahai, Isaaca, and Jacoba in the Kingdom of Heaven,
but the children of the Kingdom will be thrown out into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way. Let it be done for you as you have believed." Her servant was healed in that hour.
When Jesus came into Petra's house, she saw her husband's father lying sick with a fever.
She touched his hand, and the fever left him. He got up and served her.
When evening came, they brought to her many possessed with demons. She cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick;
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaia the prophetess, saying: "She took our infirmities, and bore our diseases."
Now when Jesus saw great multitudes around her, she gave the order to depart to the other side.
A scribe came, and said to her, "Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go."
Jesus said to her, "The foxes have holes, and the birds of the sky have nests, but the Daughter of Woman has nowhere to lay her head."
Another of her disciples said to her, "Domina, allow me first to go and bury my mother."
But Jesus said to her, "Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead."
When she got into a boat, her disciples followed her.
Behold, a violent storm came up on the sea, so much that the boat was covered with the waves, but she was asleep.
They came to her, and woke her up, saying, "Save us, Domina! We are dying!"
She said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?" Then she got up, rebuked the wind and the sea, and there was a great calm.
The women marveled, saying, "What kind of woman is this, that even the wind and the sea obey her?"
When she came to the other side, into the country of the Gergesenes, two people possessed by demons met her there, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so that nobody could pass that way.
Behold, they cried out, saying, "What do we have to do with you, Jesus, Daughter of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?"
Now there was a herd of many pigs feeding far away from them.
The demons begged her, saying, "If you cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of pigs."
She said to them, "Go!" They came out, and went into the herd of pigs: and behold, the whole herd of pigs rushed down the cliff into the sea, and died in the water.
Those who fed them fled, and went away into the city, and told everything, including what happened to those who were possessed with demons.
Behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus. When they saw her, they begged that she would depart from their borders.
