Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely …
Jesus said to the man with the shrivelled hand, ‘Stand up in front of everyone.’
When we consider the 33 years when Jesus lived on earth, there is not one occasion when his words, thoughts or actions had to be hidden because they were shameful or wrong. He taught with authority: he healed with love: he spoke with truth. Above all, his every action was in obedience to the will of his eternal Father. Through the scriptures, Jesus’ life is an open book where we may learn to delight in his loveliness.
