Matthew, one of Jesus’ disciples, went everywhere with Jesus and saw Him heal many people. He wrote down what he saw in the Book of Matthew. – Slide 1
Jesus healed sick people wherever He went. A man who was sick with leprosy asked him, ‘Lord if you choose to, you can make my skin like new.’ – Slide 2
In those days, people did not go near anyone with leprosy, but Jesus touched the man and straight away he was healed. ‘Go to the temple and give a gift of thanks to God,’ Jesus said. – Slide 3
A Centurion, who was a Roman soldier in the town of Capernaum, had a servant who was very sick. ‘I am not worthy for you to come into my house,’ he told Jesus. – Slide 4
‘Just give the command and my servant will be healed.’ Jesus saw that he truly believed and sent him home. He found his servant had been healed at that very moment. – Slide 5
While Jesus was still in Capernaum, He went to Peter’s house and found Peter’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with a fever.  Jesus reached out and touched her hand. – Slide 6
