Mark 7:31-37

The man who is afflicted with deafness and a speech impediment is brought to Jesus. Like the Syro-Phoenician woman, this man is not Jewish. Jesus takes him away from the crowd. He touches him with dirt moistened with his spittle and cures him.

No matter how many times you told the people to tell no one else of your healings, the word spread. Perhaps they could not completely understand, but somehow they knew these were great signs.
