-      There were four men who heard that Jesus was in town who decided to carry their paralyzed friend on a mat to Him, to see if their friend could be healed.  As soon as they got to the house where Jesus was, they realized that they wouldn't be able to get through to see Him.


-      Someone decided to take him to the roof of the building that Jesus was at!  That might sound impossible but houses were built differently then.  Most houses had staircases outside to get to the flat roof.


-      After digging through the roof, the men lowered the mat that the paralyzed man was lying on down to where Jesus was.


-      The first thing Jesus said when He saw that they believed was, "Son, your sins are forgiven."

-      Then, before He was finished Jesus said to the paralyzed man, "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home."


-      The Bible says that the man got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all.
