Third Sunday in Great Lent (M'shariyo / Paralytic)
From Wesley's Notes
1. And again - After having been in desert places for some time, he returned privately to the city. In the house - In Peter's house.
2. And immediately many were gathered together - Hitherto continued the general impression on their hearts. Hitherto, even at Capernaum, all who heard received the word with joy.
3. Matt. ix, 2; Luke v, 18.
4. They uncovered the roof - Or, took up the covering, the lattice or trap door, which was on all their houses, (being flat roofed.) And finding it not wide enough, broke the passage wider, to let down the couch.
6. But certain of the scribes - See whence the first offense cometh! As yet not one of the plain unlettered people were offended. They all rejoiced in the light, till these men of learning came, to put darkness for light, and light for darkness. Wo to all such blind guides! Good had it been for these if they had never been born. O God, let me never offend one of thy simple ones! Sooner let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth!
12. They were all amazed - Even the scribes themselves for a time.
