The Healing of Simon’s Mother-in-law, a tender story, is a unique glimpse of Yeshua’s compassion. If Yeshua 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.
