The Son of Man Forgives and Heals

1 So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own town. 2 Just then some mena brought to Him a paralytic lying on a stretcher. Seeing their faith, Jesus told the paralytic, "Have courage, son, your sins are forgiven." 3 At this, some of the scribes said among themselves, "He's blaspheming!" 4 But perceiving their thoughts, Jesus said, "Why are you thinking evil things in your hearts? b 5 For which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'? 6 But so you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins" -then He told the paralytic, "Get up, pick up your stretcher, and go home." 7 And he got up and went home. 8 When the crowds saw this, they were awestruckc d and gave glory to God who had given such authority to men.
