Matthew 8:1 - 8:4

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this passage, Steve Gregg discusses the story of Jesus healing a man with leprosy in Matthew 8:1-4. Leprosy was a disease that was thought to symbolize sin in the spiritual realm, and the man's healing was seen as a sign of his restored relationship with God. Gregg notes that while healing was common in the Bible, not everyone was healed and it was often done according to God's will. The healing of the leper by Jesus was seen as a symbol of the new covenant and the new power introduced by him.
