Luke 4

Luke 4 is a surprisingly pithy chapter.

Tempations and healings happen outside of the synagogues. Inside, Yeshua gets kicked out, and also a demon gets kicked out.

Yeshua stubbornly returns to visiting synagogues; the demon is never heard from again.

How much is it still true in general that temptations and healings (i.e., what shape people) happens outside synagogues, and inside is a focus on kicking things out (while Yeshua is trying to get in and get heard)?
