Jesus Heals a Crippled Woman
One Sabbath, Jesus was teaching at a synagogue. A woman crippled by an evil spirit and couldn’t bend over for eighteen years was present there.
When Jesus saw her, he reached out his hand to heal her. Immediately the back of the hunch woman was straightened and she could stand straight.
The ruler of the synagogue was furious with him and said to the people, “Come and be healed on the six working days every week but not on the Sabbath.”
Jesus answered Him, “You hypocrite! Didn’t you untie your ox or donkey and lead it out to the river every Sabbath? Then why shouldn’t this woman whom Satan had bound for eighteen years be set free?”
When his opponents heard this, they were embarrassed but the people loved the glorious things that were done by Him.
