"When he laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began to praise God."
(Luke 13:13)

Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost

A Spirit of Infirmity

Luke 13:10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.
Luke 13:11 And just then there appeared a woman with a spirit that had crippled her for eighteen years. She was bent over and was quite unable to stand up straight.
Luke 13:12 When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, "Woman, you are set free from your ailment."
Luke 13:13 When he laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began praising God.
Luke 13:14 But the leader of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had cured on the sabbath, kept saying to the crowd, "There are six days on which work ought to be done; come on those days and be cured, and not on the sabbath day."
Luke 13:15 But the Lord answered him and said, "You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger, and lead it away to give it water?
Luke 13:16 And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen long years, be set free from this bondage on the sabbath day?"

Luke 13:17 When he said this, all his opponents were put to shame; and the entire crowd was rejoicing at all the wonderful things that he was doing.

[Luke 13:11] Luke says two things about this woman: (1) her illness was caused by a spirit (demon); and (2) the illness consisted of a curvature of the spine.

[Luke 13:16] All sickness, disease, and evil in the world, the Jews would attribute to Satan. Jesus does identify this woman's affliction as a bond of Satan.
