The healing of the leper



THE HEALING OF THE LEPER
Jesus had just returned from the mountains and there was a great crowd following him. Then a leper came forward and knelt before him and asked Jesus to heal him.

According to the gospel of Mark, Jesus was moved with pity and he stretched forth his hand and touched him. Immediately, the man was healed and the leprosy left him.

Jesus advised him to go and show himself to the Priest so as to undergo the cleansing ceremony as laid down by Moses in the Old Testament. The man did not listen. He went about and begun to talk freely about it. The news of his healing spread like wild fire. In the end, Jesus could not enter any town openly. He rather dwelt in the countryside. Even there, people came to consult him from every corner.
