Jesus and the Prince of Demons
Today's Passage: Mark 3:20-30
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
20. One time Jesus entered a house, and the crowds began to gather again. Soon he and his disciples couldn't even find time to eat.
21. When his family heard what was happening, they tried to take him away. "He's out of his mind," they said
22. But the teachers of religious law who had arrived from Jerusalem said, "He's possessed by Satan, the prince of demons. That's where he gets the power to cast out demons.
23. Jesus called them over and responded with an illustration.
"How can Satan cast out Satan?" he asked.
24. "A kingdom divided by civil war will collapse.
25. Similarly, a family splintered by feuding will fall apart.
26. And if Satan is divided and fights against himself, how can he stand? He would never survive.
27. Let me illustrate this further. Who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like Satan and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger ⏤ someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house.
28. "I tell you the truth, all sin and blasphemy can be forgiven,
29. but anyone who blasphemes the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. This is a sin with eternal consequences."
30. He told them this because they were saying. "He's possessed by an evil spirit."
Mark 3:20-30 NLT
