Jesus Heals the Paralyzed Man

Jesus Heals the paralytic

What incredible friends this man had.  So many people had gathered in the house where Jesus was teaching the Word, that they dug through the roof and lowered him on a mat to present him before the Son of God.  They were convinced that He would be healed.  In Mark 2 we read that Jesus told the man his sins were forgiven. Now some of the scribes were questioning this because in their mind only God can forgive sins.  Jesus was aware of their thoughts and  confronted them by saying, “which is easier to say to the paralyzed man, Your sins are forgiven, or to say, Rise, take up your mat and walk? So that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins – He said to the paralyzed man, Arise, take up your bed, and go home. And at once he arose and picked up his mat and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and praised and thanked God…”

Color page first.  You will need a hole-punch and 2 pieces of twine or string for each child. Cut the slit in the roof and fold back to glue the buddies and for a place to tape the string or twine. Color and cut out man and mat, and the buddies…(please add a little tab to the buddies so you can glue them on the tab to the roof).  Punch holes in mat and thread string through the holes.  Position man on mat  before Jesus after glueing him on, and tape the ends of the string on the back of the page. Cotton for the scribe’s beard is optional.
