THE GOOD MESSAGE OF
JESUS THE CHRIST
Interpretation

22. Jesus Heals a Paralytic.

Jesus was at his home in Capernaum when the place got so crowded that they took the roof apart to let in a paralyzed man to be cured. Jesus recognized their faith and told the person that his sins were forgiven or released. The scholars and Pharisees felt that only God could forgive sins, but Jesus knew their thoughts and demonstrated that the karma (sins) had been released by having the man who had been paralyzed get up and walk away, thus demonstrating that the Spirit in humans does have the power and authority to release these things while on earth.
