This Bible study is based on Matthew 8: 1–4 , Matthew 10: 1–8 and Matthew 11: 1–6.

It makes the following key points:

  • In both his words and his actions, Jesus showed us that loving, touching and accepting people affected by leprosy should be a priority for us.
  • When Jesus encountered people affected by leprosy, he took a bold position against stigma, and gave healing as well as acceptance.
