Week 12.2 Jesus Sends Out the Twelve pt 8
What name was the “head of the house” called?
The prince of demons was Satan, also known as Beelzebub and the lord of flies. The Pharisees accused Jesus of using Satan’s power to drive out demons (see 12:24). Good is sometimes labelled evil. If Jesus, who is perfect, was called evil, his followers should expect that similar accusations will be directed at them. But those who endure will be vindicated (10:22).

Verse of the Week:
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
