Peter’s mother-in-law

James Tissot, 1836-1902 The healing of Peter's mother-in-law

Gospel of St. Matthew (Matthew 8: 14-17)

Jesus entered the house of Peter, and saw his mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.
He touched her hand, the fever left her, and she rose and waited on him.
When it was evening, they brought him many who were possessed by demons, and he drove out the spirits by a word and cured all the sick, to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah the prophet: "He took away our infirmities and bore our diseases."

Gospel of St. Mark (Mark 1: 29-31)

On leaving the synagogue he entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.
Simon's mother-in-law lay sick with a fever. They immediately told him about her.
He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up. Then the fever left her and she waited on them.

Gospel of St. Luke (Luke 4: 38-39)

After he left the synagogue, he entered the house of Simon. 16 Simon's mother-in-law was afflicted with a severe fever, and they interceded with him about her.
He stood over her, rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up immediately and waited on them.
