Chapter 72 - The innkeeper and his wife are surprised about the miraculous power of the Lord.

72,1. After a while, he said to his wife and 2 daughters (the innkeeper): “Since you were now healed by this wonderful Lord and Master, you also must show your gratitude that you owe by going to work. Go to the kitchen and prepare for all a better meal than I could offer them. Take the best from the storeroom and prepare it well.”

72,2. The 3, together with the other servants, went joyfully to the assigned work.

72,3. And I said to the innkeeper: “Friend, you could have spared that trouble to the healed ones, because to us the very good bread and also the excellent wine are sufficient. But since the 3 started the cooking and frying with great joy, they also should finish it.”

72,4. I hardly had said that when the woman came very joyfully back into the dining hall and said to the innkeeper: “But what happened during my severe sickness – which lasted for half a year – without my knowledge? The big and the small storeroom are overflowing with all kinds of good food. There are large quantities of lentils, beans, flour, oil, tree fruit, big grapes, several of the biggest pots of honey, dried and smoked fishes, and the bread baskets are full with the nicest loafs of bread. Also the smallest storeroom is overflowing with milk, butter, cheese and fresh eggs, and still more things, with salt, good herbs and roots. When did all that come into the storerooms? I asked the children and the servants, but they could give me no explanation, but they thought that you alone would know. What happened?”

72,5. The innkeeper was in turn very amazed and said: “If this is what it looks like in the storerooms, I am again starting to believe in the old miracles, and then the manna rain and the falling down of the quails are not a fiction, but truth. I believe that this Lord and Master, who healed you, will know best who has filled our storerooms, for a master who can heal sick people only by his word will also be able to accomplish other things.”

72,6. Then also the innkeeper went to see his storeroom and saw that everything was as his wife told him before, and he said: “That Man must be of a great ancestry. Either He is a great prophet or He is a magician who is thoroughly acquainted with the powers of nature and has acquired His knowledge in Egypt or somewhere else.”

72,7. His wife said: “When He healed me I saw a very bright light coming out of His head, and His whole Being was surrounded with a shining light, and this will surely never be the case with a magician. Something very great and exalted must be hidden behind that Man and maybe also behind those who are with Him. Maybe He finally is – who can tell – even the promised Elijah who precedes the Messiah, or maybe He is the Messiah Himself.”

72,8. The innkeeper said: “You could be right in this, because the one who can accomplish this by the power of his will, must be strongly filled with God’s eternal Spirit. That all this came here in the house in a supernatural wonderful way stands clear before our eyes, and we only can deeply thank that great Master. But take care that a good and rich meal will soon be prepared.”

72,9. Then everyone went to work in the kitchen, and the innkeeper came in deep thoughts back to us in the dining hall.
