And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Mark 2:5
Another display of Jesus deity was revealed to us in this story. When a home was so crowded because Jesus was there, these men decided to lower a paralyzed man through the roof so Jesus would heal him. But Jesus says an interesting thing here, instead of saying you are healed he says to the man “Your sins are forgiven” Who can forgive sins but God?
“I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins. Isaiah 43:25
God clearly revealed he is the only one who can forgive sin, so then Jesus must be God in the flesh to forgive sin. The religious leaders understood this as they accused Jesus of blasphemy for this (Mark 2:7) If Jesus wasn’t claiming to be God in the flesh, then why would they accuse him of blasphemy? Jesus not only healed this man but make him a new man!
“But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins “– He said to the paralytic, Mark 2:10
Jesus revealed to everyone that he is God in the flesh, he has authority over sin and death. Son of Man is reference to the title Daniel described seeing Jesus in his prophecy (Daniel 7) Jesus used this reference because the Religious leaders knew exactly who Jesus was revealing himself to be.
Through Jesus your sins can be forgiven, by your faith you can be healed in Jesus Name Amen!
