Matthew 8:1-4 - The Leper's Prayer - Steve Gregg



 Jesus heals a leper. Steve Gregg explains the significance of this in 1st century Israel and the significance of leprosy being unclean under the ceremonial law.

Matthew 8:1-4

 

New King James Version (NKJV)

Jesus Cleanses a Leper

 

When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”

Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
