Jesus Heals a Deaf Man


In the district of Decapolis, there lived a man who couldn't hear.

He was deaf

The man could not speak plainly, either.

He had a speech impediment.

People couldn't understand him when tried to speak to them and he could not hear people speak to him.

When Jesus came to town, the people got excited.

They wanted Jesus to heal this man.

They took the deaf man to Jesus.

They asked Jesus to heal him.

"Lay your hands on this man and heal him", they said.

Jesus looked at the deaf man.

Jesus took the deaf man away from the crowd.

When they were alone, Jesus put his finger into the man's ears.

Jesus spit.

Jesus touched the man's tongue.

Then Jesus looked to Heaven and prayed, "Be opened!"

Immediately, the deaf man could hear.

Immediately he could speak clearly.

Jesus asked the people not to tell.

"He has done all things well", they said.  "He has made the deaf hear."

The people were amazed at what Jesus had done.

Jesus made them very happy.

What do you think?
Did you think that Jesus would heal the man?
Would you tell what Jesus had done?
Did Jesus do the right thing?

Write to me and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray

Dear God,
Thank you for sending Jesus to show us.
Thank you for teaching us the right way.
Help us to always pray for the sick.
Help us to remember to pray for those less fortunate than us.
This I ask through Christ Our Lord

Can you think of a better prayer?
