THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
Part 25: The Paralyzed Man
Five men came to Jesus one day. One of them was
bedridden. The other four were his friends and they loved him
dearly. When they heard that the God-man was in Capernaum, they
decided to visit the Healer. The problem was that there were so many
people in the way that it was impossible to gain entrance to the
house. The only way to see Jesus was to dismantle part of the roof
and lower their friend down. And thatís exactly what they did. They
did not seek permission from the homeowner; they only had one goal
and that was getting their friend face-to-face with the God-man. The
Son of God was impressed with their faith, forgave the paralyticís
sins, and healed him. But the religious leadership objected because
they failed to recognize the divinity of Jesus. The God-man knew
their thoughts and chided them for their lack of discernment,
showing that He had the power to forgive and heal.
