According to the Gospel, Jesus left the synagogue and went to Apostle Peter's house. There he saw the mother of Peter's wife lying in bed with a high fever. Jesus touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him.
Following this, the Gospels report that at sunset, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness or were demon-possessed, and laying his hands on each one, Jesus healed them and cast demons out of them (Matthew 8:16-18).
