When Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that He was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even at the door. And Jesus was preaching the word to them. Outside, four men carried a paralysed man to Jesus but they could not get inside because of the crowd. – Slide 1
So they removed the roof above Him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralysed man, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven.’ – Slide 2
Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, ‘Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?’ Jesus asked them ‘Why do you question these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, “Your sins are forgiven,” or to say, “Rise, take up your bed and walk?” But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins—He said to the paralytic— I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.”’ – Slide 3
And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, ‘We never saw anything like this!’ – Slide 4
