Second, the dialog on forgiving sins. In verses 5 – 10 the scribes are scandalized because Christ forgave the sins of the paralytic. They stated correctly that only God could forgive sins, and they held incorrectly that Christ was not God. To prove that He was and that He had that authority, He healed the paralytic.
In this short story from the first part of Christ’s ministry are two clear evidences that Christ is God. Additionally there are other interesting facets of Christ’s nature that one can share with one’s child, compassion, boldness, fearlessness, to name a few.
