Exorcist: (Acts 19:13) "In that sceptical and therefore superstitious age
professional exorcist abounded. Many of these professional exorcists
were disreputable Jews, like Simon in Samaria and Elymas in Cyprus
(Acts 8:9; 13:6) "Other references to exorcism as practised by the Jews
are found in
(Matthew 12:27; Mark 9:38; Luke 9:49,50) It would seem that it was
an opinion among the Jews that miracles might be wrought by invoking
the divine name. Thus also these "vagabond Jews" pretended that they
could expel daemons. The power of casting out devils was conferred by
Christ on his apostles
(Matthew 10:8) and on the seventy
(Luke 10:17-19) and
was exercised by believers after his ascension
(Mark 16:17; Acts 16:18) but
this power was never spoken of as exorcism.
