The Healing of Shimon’s Mother-in-law, a tender story, is a unique glimpse of Jesus’ compassion. If Jesus had previously visited Simon’s home, perhaps regularly, or was staying with Simon, he already might have been acquainted with Simon’s mother-in-law, making the story even more poignant and touching.
