"They were all amazed and glorified God" (Mark 2:12)



MARK 2:1-12 TEXT


1 When he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home. 2 So many gathered around that there was no longer room for them, not even in front of the door; and he was speaking the word to them. 3 Then some people came, bringing to him a paralysed man, carried by four of them. 4 And when they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven.’ 6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, 7 ‘Why does this fellow speak in this way? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone?’ 8 At once Jesus perceived in his spirit that they were discussing these questions among themselves; and he said to them, ‘Why do you raise such questions in your hearts? 9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, “Your sins are forgiven”, or to say, “Stand up and take your mat and walk”? 10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins’—he said to the paralytic— 11 ‘I say to you, stand up, take your mat and go to your home.’ 12 And he stood up, and immediately took the mat and went out before all of them; so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, ‘We have never seen anything like this!’

If you wish to establish a Bible meditation group in the Communities for Life Network in Birmingham UK and need help please contact us.The author of these pages will be at your disposal wherever and whenever possible.

If you would like to start a group and have a Bible study or meditation online please send an email for our Skype name. If you already have a Bible meditation group anywhere in the world and wish to be associated with the Communities for Life Network and listed on this site please contact us.

If you do not have a group and do not want to establish one we also welcome individual persons who are not Christian but who would like to get to know what Christians really believe please contact us.

Anyone who has learnt about Jesus and Christianity from Muslim sources possesses a very distorted knowledge. Any Muslim who would like to find out about Jesus, the seal of the prophets, is welcome to contact us for a study specially customised for your needs. Muhammad Ibn Sereen once said: “This knowledge is a matter of deen [religion], so be careful who you take your deen [religion] from.” This is also true of Christianity, be careful from whom you learn about Jesus. Learn about Jesus from his followers. Salvation from the chains of legalism is for you, Jesus is the only Sharia. Contact us .
