Jesus heals a crippled woman

When Jesus heals a crippled woman on the Sabbath day he faces criticism from the synagogue leaders.
Contributed by LUMO project
On a Sabbath day of rest, Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues. – Slide 1
There was a woman there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. – Slide 2
When Jesus saw her, He called her forward and said to her ... – Slide 3
Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.’ – Slide 4
Then Jesus put His hands on her. – Slide 5
Immediately she straightened up and praised God. – Slide 6
Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue leader said to the people, ‘There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.’ – Slide 7
The Lord answered him, ‘You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie your ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? – Slide 8
Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?’ – Slide 9
When Jesus said this, all His opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things He was doing. – Slide 10
Then Jesus asked, ‘What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. – Slide 11
It grew and became a tree, and the birds perched in its branches.’ – Slide 12
Again Jesus asked, ‘What shall I compare the kingdom of God to? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about thirty kilograms of flour until it worked all through the dough.’ – Slide 13
