Bible: Luke 5:21-24

5:21 Then 1  the experts in the law 2  and the Pharisees began to think 3  to themselves, 4  “Who is this man 5  who is uttering blasphemies? 6  Who can forgive sins but God alone? 5:22 When Jesus perceived 7  their hostile thoughts, 8  he said to them, 9 Why are you raising objections 10  within yourselves? 5:23 Which is easier, 11  to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Stand up and walk? 5:24 But so that you may know 12  that the Son of Man 13  has authority on earth to forgive sins– he said to the paralyzed man 14 “I tell you, stand up, take your stretcher 15  and go home.” 16
