(Mt. 17:14-20, Mk. 9:13-28, Lk. 9:37-44)
Immediately after the Transfiguration, the Synoptic Evangelists present the episode where Jesus heals a lunatic boy. What was lunatism? Was it the disease that is called somnambulism today? Why weren't the disciples able to heal the child and set him free from the unclean spirit? How are such demons cast out, and what did the father of the demon-possessed child ask, saying, "I believe, help my unbelief!"
