When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, "Son, your sins are forgiven."
The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there.
"No one, sir," she said. "Then neither do I condemn you,"Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin."
