Cure on the Sabbath
(John 5: 1-27)
Jn 5:6 – When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been ill for a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be well?”
Jn 5:7 –The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; while I am on my way, someone else gets down there before me.”
Jn 5:8-9 – Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your mat, and walked. Immediately the man became well, took up his mat, and walk.”
Jn 5: 16-18 – Therefore, the Jews began to persecute Jesus because he did this on a Sabbath. But Jesus answered them, “My Father is at work until now, so I am at work.” For this reason the Jews tried all the more to kill them, because he not only broke the Sabbath but he also called God his own father, making himself equal to God.
The man Jesus cured was lame which means he could not walk like this man in this picture who must use a wheel chair to move around.
The lame man could not walk so he couldn't go to the pool so Jesus asked him do you want to be well. The man replied yes and he could walk.
Jesus performed a miracle and the lame man was able to walk after 38 years.
