And they went into Capernaum. And immediately on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue and began to teach. Bible see other translations

“Capernaum.” Capernaum would become Jesus’ home town when he left Nazareth.

[For more information, see commentary on Mark 2:1.]

The record of Jesus casting a demon out of a man in the synagogue at Capernaum is in Mark 1:23-28 and Luke 4:33-37.

“began to teach.” The verb is likely the ingressive imperfect, that Jesus began to teach. Jesus did not just read the scrolls in the synagogue, he taught the people. Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. Of course, Jesus would not have taken over the meeting, but rather when the opportunity came he taught the people to bring them God’s truth.
