Palsy

Additional Links
KJV term for paralysis (Matthew 4:24; Matthew 9:2; Luke 5:18; Acts 8:7 ). The descriptions of the Gospel writers do not permit identifications with specific forms of paralysis. The Gospel writers were rather concerned to present Jesus as the One to whom God had entrusted the authority to forgive sins (Matthew 9:6 ) and whose healing ministry was a cause for glorifying God (Matthew 9:8 ).
