Jesus cleanses a leper

TEXT: Mark 1:40-45

Just before Jesus heads back to Capernaum to end His first crusade (verses 38-39), Mark writes about an encounter where a man with leprosy begged Jesus for healing.

The New International Version of the Bible says the man went to his knees and begged Jesus for healing (Mark 1:40). Jesus was moved with compassion, and touched Him.

Jesus launches his first crusade

TEXT: Mark 1:35-39

After Jesus heals Simon's mother-in-law, and a host of sick and demon-possessed people who showed up at Simon's front door in Capernaum, he now readies to launch a crusade that will take him and the disciples through all the towns of Galilee (REFERENCE: Mark 1:38).

We now look at the events surrounding that first crusade.
