Slide 1

Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals. – Slide 1

Slide 2

It was the Sabbath day. In Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate was a pool, called Bethesda, which was by five covered colonnades. – Slide 2

Slide 3

A great number of disabled people used to lie by the pool – the blind, the lame, the paralysed. – Slide 3

Slide 4

One man there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. – Slide 4

Slide 5

When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, He went and spoke to him. – Slide 5

Slide 6

‘Do you want to get well?’ Jesus asked. ‘Sir,’ the lame man replied, ‘I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am struggling to get in the water, someone else goes down ahead of me.’ – Slide 6

Slide 7

Then Jesus said to him, ‘Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.’ – Slide 7

Slide 8

At once the man was cured. He stood to his feet and began to roll up his mat. – Slide 8

Slide 9

Then he picked up the mat and began to walk. – Slide 9

Slide 10

In utter amazement he walked out of the colonnade and headed towards the Temple which was nearby. – Slide 10

Slide 11

In the Temple he was seen by some Jewish leaders who reprimanded him, ‘It is the Sabbath day and the law forbids you to carry your mat.’ He replied, ‘The man who made me well told me to pick up my mat and walk.’ – Slide 11

Slide 12

‘Who is this man who told you to pick it up your mat and walk?’ they demanded. The healed man had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd. – Slide 12

Slide 13

Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, ‘See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.’ – Slide 13

Slide 14

The man went away and told the Jewish leaders that it was Jesus who had made him well. – Slide 14

Slide 15

So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began to persecute Him. – Slide 15

Slide 16

In His defence Jesus said to them, ‘My Father is always at His work to this very day, and I too am working.’ – Slide 16

Slide 17

This made the Jewish leaders even more determined to kill Jesus. Not only was He breaking their Sabbath day law, but He was calling God His own Father, making himself equal with God. – Slide 17
