  3. How is Jesus’ forgiveness of sins and healing connected?
  4. How might Jesus’ forgiveness and miracle relate to the following video about the Christian perspective of the connection between God and Jesus?


  1. What do you think Jesus’ words and actions reveal about who he is and what he came to do?
