The Miraculous Healing Of People On Pallets
"And when He returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that He was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room for them, not even about the door; and He was preaching the word to them. And they came, bringing to Him a paralytic carried by four men. And when they could not get near Him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Him; and when they had made an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "My son, your sins are forgiven."
"Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in Hebrew called Bethzatha, which has five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of invalids, blind, lame, paralyzed ... When Jesus saw him and knew that he had been lying there a long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be healed?"
Fact Finder: Did the apostles, by means of the Holy Spirit, also heal people who had been confined to pallets?
