A Summer of Healing
V.1 Some time later,
Jesus went up to Jerusalem for a feast of the Jews
V.2 there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool
which in Aramaic is called Bethesda
V.3 Here a great number of disabled people used to lie
the blind, the lame, the paralyzed.
V.5 One there had been an invalid for 38 years.
V.6 When Jesus saw him lying there
and learned that he had… for a long time,
he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”
A Summer of Healing –
Many have disabilities
In Jesus ministry he often healed based upon
their request and their faith- Not this time!
1- Do you want to get well?
2- I have no one…
3- Get up!
