Context
17:18 Then 1  Jesus rebuked 2  the demon and it came out of him, and the boy was healed from that moment. 17:19 Then the disciples came 3  to Jesus privately and said, “Why couldn’t we cast it out?” 17:20 He told them, “It was because of your little faith. I tell you the truth, 4  if you have faith the size of 5  a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; nothing 6  will be impossible for you.”
