Jesus Heals a Sick Man(click to view larger)

Illustrations by Jared Beckstrand

One day Jesus was teaching people inside a house.

Outside the house was a man who could not walk. His friends had carried him to the house so Jesus could heal him. But the house was so crowded that his friends couldn’t carry him inside.

The man’s friends carried him onto the top of the house. Then they made a hole in the roof. They lowered the man and his bed into the house so Jesus could see him.

Jesus saw how much faith the man and his friends had. He told the man to stand up and walk. The man stood up. He could walk again! Picking up his bed, he went happily home.

That day Jesus Christ showed His great power by healing the man. He wanted people to know He had power to do many wonderful things.

For Little Friends

The sick man in the scripture story needed help from his friends to reach Jesus. You can also help your friends when they’re sick. Jack, Lily, and Tina want to cheer up their friend Sofia. She’s not feeling well.

Sofia loves wildflowers. Can you help the kids find wildflowers on the way? Whose path has the most flowers? Which color flower did they find the most? (Answers on page 48.)

Jesus Heals a Man Taken with a Palsy

And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy. … And when [Jesus] saw their faith, he said unto him, … Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house (Luke 5:18, 20, 24).
