… But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the man who was paralyzed—“I say to you, rise, pick up your bed and go home.” …

William Taylor, our Rector, expounds the passage from Luke’s gospel - chapter 5, verses 17 to 26 - where Jesus forgives the sins of a paralysed man, and then, so as to demonstrate his authority, cures the man's physical infirmity.

The Bible translation we use at St Helen's is the English Standard Version (ESV). If you don’t have a Bible handy then here is a link to Luke's gospel, chapter 5 - esvbible.org/Luke+5/
