People's Bible Notes for Matthew 8:6


Mt 8:6 Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy. Luke says his servant "was dear unto him", and the whole account of Matthew indicates intense solicitude. Paralysis, or palsy, was a common disease in those days. See Mt 4:24. Alford says, ``The disease of the text may have been tetanus, or lockjaw, which the ancient physicians included under paralysis.'' Luke says that "he was ready to die" (Lu 7:2).

    Fear not. Fear leads to anger. And we all know where it goes from there. Just trust God, no matter the situation, he will be there. GODSPEED
  • Centurian
    Praise God, for he has visited His people. Now we are certain that He exists and that He rewards those who continue in their diligence, those who never waver in their faith, those whose humility exceeds that if the Pharisee, and those who are healed according to their belief that whom God has sent was capable of healing and more, of converting hearts from cynicism to surrender to the infinite God
  • A disciple
    "...Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed." Simply a fact! there was no fanatic display of the person having to charge himself up "in the Holy Ghost," and nothing he had to perform at all! He simply asked the Lord Jesus to have mercy on him; AND HE DID! This is how prayers are answered, and how folks are saved and healed.

    Rose Adams, the veil is still covering the Jews when the scriptures are read.
