The Sixth Sunday of Epiphany

Jesus Heals a Man with Leprosy

Mark 1: 41 - 45

Matthew 8: 1 - 4

Luke 5: 12 - 16

Leprosy was probably the worst disease known in the time of Jesus.

It was a long-term, slow-moving disease that didn't cause great pain or death, but it prevented people from praying and going to the synagogue and to the Temple in Jerusalem.

Again and again we see Jesus' curing of a physical disease so that people could return to God to be cured of their spiritual diseases.
