Tom Schreiner on the Power Behind Jesus Ministry

"Such healing and exorcisms occured because "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power" (Acts 10:38). We note again the close association of the Spirit and power, as in Luke 4:14. The effectiveness of Jesus' ministry, His miracles and healings flowed not from Himself but from the power of the Spirit".
