Matthew 4:23

Context
Jesus’ Healing Ministry

4:23 Jesus 1  went throughout all of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, 2  preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of disease and sickness among the people.

1 tn Grk “And he.”

2 sn Synagogues were places for Jewish prayer and worship, with recognized leadership (cf. Luke 8:41). Though the origin of the synagogue is not entirely clear, it seems to have arisen in the postexilic community during the intertestamental period. A town could establish a synagogue if there were at least ten men. In normative Judaism of the NT period, the OT scripture was read and discussed in the synagogue by the men who were present (see the Mishnah, m. Megillah 3-4; m. Berakhot 2).
