Exorcists / Exorcism


The Jews had exorcists during those days (Acts 19:13) who were known as “sons of the Prophets”. They performed exorcism, calling upon the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. One person did that in the name of Jesus during his public ministry. John said to Jesus, “‘Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow in our company.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Do not prevent him, for whoever is not against you is for you’” (Lk 9:49-50). Hence, Jesus questioned the leaders on what authority their own people performed exorcisms. If they argue Jesus did the miracle with the power of Satan, they had to admit the same for their people who performed exorcisms. The disciples of Jesus were also performing exorcisms in his name.
