Jesus Heals the Ten Lepers

Scripture: Luke 17:11-19

Series: Jesus the Healer (Gospels)

Summary

Jesus attracted a crowd everywhere He went. Some wanted to hear His teaching. Others wanted to see His miracles. But some needed more than insight and awe; they needed a new life. In this session, we find such a crowd. Lepers were the outcasts of society. In the Book of Leviticus, God said their disease made them ceremonially unclean and unfit for regular community life. When Jesus came near, the local lepers were desperate for healing and thus called out to Him for help. What followed was a lesson in what Jesus can do and the kind of heart that responds to Him. Here we find the surprise of the gospel in full force: new life given, gratitude flowing, and faith that makes one truly well.
