Kids Lesson Review – Luke 5:17-26 – Jesus Heals the Paralyzed Man


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Luke 5:17-26, Jesus Heals the Paralyzed Man.

This is lesson 12 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 90 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 12 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Through Jesus, our sins can be forgiven.

The Lesson In A Sentence

To prove that he had the authority (as God) to forgive sins, Jesus healed a paralyzed man.

Questions For Your Kids

Parents, we have provided some basic answers to the questions so that when your child inevitably says, “I don’t remember,” you can feed them some clues and help them recount the lesson.

What happened in the story?

Several men brought a paralyzed man to Jesus. They could not get into the house to see him so
they carried the man up to the roof and lowered him down into the room. Jesus forgave the man’s
sins and then healed him. The man walked home without assistance.

Who was watching Jesus?

The Pharisees and teachers of the law [scribes].

Why did the Pharisees and the scribes begin to question Jesus in their hearts when Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “Your sins are forgiven?”

The scribes knew that only God could forgive sins. To demonstrate his authority to forgive sins, Jesus also healed the paralyzed man. Jesus is God.

Which is greater: being healed or having sins forgiven?

It is better for us to be forgiven and spend the rest of life as a cripple than to have our bodies healed of sickness but spend eternity in hell.
