Jesus Forgives And Heals a Paralytic

And again He entered Capernaum
after some days, and it was heard that
He was in the house. Immediately many
gathered together so that there was no
longer room to receive them not even near the
door. And He preached the word to them.
Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic
who was carried by four men. And when
they could not come near Him because of
the crowd, they uncovered the roof where
He was. So when they had broken through,
they let down the bed on which the paralytic
was lying.
When Jesus saw their faith, He said to
the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven
you.”

And some of the scribes were sitting
there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why
does this Man speak blasphemies like this?
Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
But immediately, when Jesus perceived
in His spirit that they reasoned thus within
themselves, He said to them, “Why do you
reason about these things in you hearts?
Which is easier, to say to the paralytic,
Your sins are forgiven you’, or to say, ‘Arise,
take up you bed and walk’? But that you
may know that the Son of Man has power
on earth to forgive sins”
— He said to the
paralytic, “I say to you, arise, take up your
bed, and go to your house.”
Immediately
he arose, took up the bed, and went out in
the presence of them all, so that all were
amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never
saw anything like this!”
