Men had power over demons

Luke Bible Background

New Testament: Luke 10.17

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 10.1–24 on April 5, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

Jesus sent 70 men to preach and to use miraculous power, which they did and they were very excited when they returned:

Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”

– Luke 10.17

That would be awesome! When demons possessed people, no one could control or restrain that person, but Jesus had the power to cast demons out of people, and for this assignment, He enabled 70 to have such power. That must have been something.

Questions:

  • Why would Jesus entrust humans with such power?
  • What has the Lord entrusted to you?
