The historical account we will examine in this lesson is about the healing of a paralytic man. At this preaching event the Pharisees and experts in the Mosaic Law came in judgment of Jesus.

In these verses we will study the account of Jesus healing a leper that comes to Him and asks, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus’ response is wonderful, “I am willing.” This is the heart of God that’s willing to heal the worst of the worst.
