“Spiritual Paralysis” | Mark 2:1-12 Bible Study

Imagine going to a physician for treatment and the doctor starts talking to you about your sins!

When Jesus heals the paralyzed man in Capernaum, He once again demonstrates His authority — the authority to even forgive sin.

Seeing true faith — faith that manifests itself in action, in spite of difficulties — Jesus, the prophesied Son of Man from Daniel 7:13-14 (cf. Mk 14:61-62), does what only God can do.

The religious leaders present consider Christ’s claim to forgive sin to be blasphemy. But Jesus provides eye-opening evidence of His divine authority and of the prophesied Kingdom of God He inaugurated.

Just as Jesus healed the man from His physical paralysis and freed him from his mat, He can heal us from our spiritual paralysis and free us from our sin.
