“Lesson 13: Jesus Christ Heals the Sick,” Primary 7: New Testament, 44 new commandment unto ye one as have you, ye love one commandment new love A ye you, ye give another; I one That also that John 13:34 Jesus had great love and compassion for the sick. A leader of the Jewish people had a son who was dying. He traveled many miles to find Jesus. The leader asked Jesus to come heal his son. Jesus told the leader his son would be healed. His servants ran to meet him when the leader returned home. They told him his son was better and would live. The man knew that Jesus Christ had healed his son. He and all his family believed in the Savior. After the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus healed many more people. A man with a terrible skin disease called leprosy asked Jesus to heal him. Jesus touched the leper and told him he was healed. The leper’s skin instantly cleared and he was healed. Jesus asked the man to tell no one other than the priest, but the man told everyone he met. A Roman army officer heard about Jesus. He had a servant who was very sick and dying. When Jesus entered the city, the officer told Jesus about his servant. Jesus said he would come to the officer’s home to heal the servant. The officer said he was not worthy to have Jesus enter his home. He said if Jesus said the servant would be healed then he knew it would happen. Jesus said He had never met anyone whose faith was as strong. Jesus said the servant would be healed because of his faith. Jesus went to the home of Peter who was one of His disciples. The mother of Peter’s wife was sick with a very high fever. Jesus was asked to heal her. When he did the fever immediately left her. Jesus saw a widow at the funeral of her only son. He saw how sad she was. He went to the body of her son and told him to get up. The widow’s son was alive again. Jesus healed the sick, crippled, deaf and blind. He forgave sins. He cast out devils. He brought people back from death. Many people heard of Jesus. Many people came to Him. It became difficult for Him to openly enter the cities. Jesus wanted to help everyone who tried to come to Him. He knew many were too sick and weak to come to Him. Jesus sent His apostles throughout the land to teach and heal. He told His apostles, “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:7-8). Why do you think Jesus performed these miracles? Let’s read: Mark 1:41 Luke 7:13 John 9:1–3 How did these healings bless the lives of the people involved? Let’s read: Luke 7:2, 12 John 4:52–53 What qualities do we need to develop in our lives if we are going to follow the Savior’s example in these accounts? Let’s read John 13:34–35 How can we show love, compassion, and concern toward people who are in need? How have you felt when someone helped you? Did Jesus know all of the people he healed? Let’s read Matthew 8:5–8 What does this tell us about whom we should help if we see someone in need? After Jesus healed the leper, what did He ask him to do? Let’s read Mark 1:43–44 What does this tell us about how we should help others? Because leprosy was thought to be highly contagious, those with the disease were often not allowed to live in the cities and they were shunned by those without leprosy. How does helping others in need bring us closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus? Let’s read Matthew 25:45 How do you feel when you help someone? Can any of you tell about an experience when you helped someone in need or when you received help from another person? Let’s read 1 John 3:18 This verse is telling us that we should not only tell people we love them, we should show our love through our actions. It is what we do for someone else that shows we love them. Act out ways you can show love for your family and friends. Enr Act 1 President Spencer W. Kimball said: “God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs” (“Small Acts of Service,” Ensign, Dec. 1974, p. 5). Enr Act 2 Do you know of anyone who has helped someone else in need? This person has developed love, compassion, and concern for others and shows that love through acts of service. Enr Act 2 Let’s read the following scriptures about serving others: Matthew 25:34–40 Mosiah 2:17–18, 4:14–15 Let’s make a list of the things these scriptures tell us we should do for others. Choose an act of service you will perform during the coming week. Enr Act 3 Act out ways you could show love and compassion and serve people in one of these situations: A new child comes to Primary and doesn’t know anyone. A child in your Primary class gets sick. Your friend is not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints. Enr Act 4 Act out ways you could show love and compassion and serve people in one of these situations: Someone in your ward or branch is lonely. Your parents are busy and ask you to help take care of your little brother or sister. Someone says unkind things to a friend of yours. Enr Act 4 I am grateful for the life and example of the Savior. I testify that we are following Jesus’ teachings when we show compassion and love to those around us. During the week all of us should try to show more love and do small acts of service for our families and others.
