In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice,
 “Go away! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are---the Holy One of God!”
Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God !” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew he was the Messiah.
