  • Luke 4:38-44 – Jesus heals many.
    • Luke 4:38-39 – See Matthew 5:10-11; 6:12-16. When Jesus called Peter to be an apostle, Peter had plenty of evidence that Jesus was the Christ.
  • Luke 5:1-11 – Simon, James, and John see Jesus’ power and leave everything to follow Him.
  • Luke 5:12-16 – Jesus heals the leper.
    • Luke 5:16 – Notice that Jesus would take time to pray, even with so many people longing for His teaching. This gives us some indication of how important prayer is.
