Jesus Heals Peter’s Mother-in-law 
After one visit to the synagogue in Capernaum Jesus and his disciples went to Peter and Andrew’s home. Peter’s mother-in-law was ill in bed with a fever. They found her lying coated in sweat, her breath rattling inside her tortured body. Jesus looked down at her face, her mouth was stretched white against the teeth, the cheeks hollow below her dark eyes. 
Jesus:   Get up. Come on. Stand up! 
Peter:   But she’s not well… 
Jesus:   Quiet. Come on, stand up. 
The rasping breath stopped and there was suddenly no sound at all from the body on the bed. 
Peter:   You’ve killed her... she’s stopped breathing... she’s dead!
