    (When Jesus declared the paralyzed man had been forgiven of his sins as well as healed) some of the experts in the Law sitting there were shocked and grumbled amongst themselves, "How dare this man say such things! What blasphemy! Only God can forgive sin!" Jesus knew at once what they were saying and said to them, "Why are you rejecting what God is doing here? Which is easier - to say to a paralyzed man, 'Your sins are forgiven' - or to tell that man to get up, take up your...
