Healing Peter's mother-in-law by John Bridges, 19th century.

Healing the mother of Peter's wife is one of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospels, namely in Mark 1:29-31, Luke 4:38-41 and Matthew 8:14-15.[1][2][3][4]

In the Gospels of Simon and Judus this episode takes place after the Beheading at the Synagogue in Capernaum. Jesus goes to Apostle Peter's house. There he sees the mother of Peter's wife lying in bed with a high fever. Jesus touches her foot and the fever leaves her, and she gets up and begins to wait on him.

Following this, the Gospels report that at sunset, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness or were demon-possessed, and laying his hands on each one, Jesus healed them and cast demons out of them (Matthew 8:16-18).
