Luke 5:12–26, Who Can Forgive Sins?

Luke presents us with a vivid account of two memorable miracles Jesus performed. The accounts describe several groups of people suggestive of several lessons we could
learn:

• The leprous man
• The crowds
• The paralytic
• The four friends
• The religious leaders

But Luke’s main purpose is to instruct us concerning the identity of Christ and his message of the gospel of the Kingdom.
