Hebrews 2: 14- 18

2:14 Therefore, because children have a common flesh and blood, he himself also, in like manner, has shared in the same, so that through death, he might destroy him who held the dominion of death, that is, the devil,
2:15 and so that he might free those who, through the fear of death, had been condemned to servitude throughout their entire life.
2:16 For at no time did he take hold of the Angels, but instead he took hold of the offspring of Abraham.
2:17 Therefore, it is fitting for him to be made similar to his brothers in all things, so that he might become a merciful and faithful High Priest before God, in order that he might bring forgiveness to the offenses of the people.
2:18 For in as much as he himself has suffered and has been tempted, he also is able to assist those who are tempted.

Mark 1: 29- 39

1:29 And soon after departing from the synagogue, they went into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
1:30 But the mother-in-law of Simon lay ill with a fever. And at once they told him about her.
1:31 And drawing near to her, he raised her up, taking her by the hand. And immediately the fever left her, and she ministered to them.
1:32 Then, when evening arrived, after the sun had set, they brought to him all who had maladies and those who had demons.
1:33 And the entire city was gathered together at the door.
1:34 And he healed many who were troubled with various illnesses. And he cast out many demons, but he would not permit them to speak, because they knew him.
1:35 And rising up very early, departing, he went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.
1:36 And Simon, and those who were with him, followed after him.
1:37 And when they had found him, they said to him, “For everyone is seeking you.”
1:38 And he said to them: “Let us go into the neighboring towns and cities, so that I may preach there also. Indeed, it was for this reason that I came.”
1:39 And he was preaching in their synagogues and throughout all of Galilee, and casting out demons.
