Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers  

Our hope is for our kids to know that: The forgiveness of our sin is the greatest healing we can receive  

34 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34

(Open the bible and read to your child Luke 17:11-19) The word spread about all the miracles that Jesus has done, so when ten lepers heard that Jesus was teaching in their village, they went out to meet him. When Jesus saw the lepers he immediately told them to go see the priest to examine them. Now the priest were the ones that verify the healing of a leper, so the ten had enough faith to do as Jesus said. Along the way they were healed, showing that when we walk in faith Jesus will take care of us. After they were examined and verified they were healed, only one leper came back to Jesus to thank him, a Samaritan. The Samaritan not only reminds us that salvation is for all, but it also reminds us to seek Christ in the good times, not just the bad.

The Jesus Connection:
Though many Jews believed, the Jewish nation as a whole would reject Jesus as the Messiah. Many Gentiles, however, would gladly receive the gospel. Here we see a Samaritan throwing himself at the feet of Jesus. Clearly this man had been healed not only physically but also spiritually. The other lepers found healing; this man found Jesus. By healing the man’s illness, Jesus saved his earthly life. But Jesus pointed to a greater healing when he told the man that his faith had made him well. That commendation indicated that God recognized his trust in Jesus and he would be saved. We are also sick with sin and condemned to death. By dying on the cross, Jesus saved us and gave us a greater healing, the forgiveness of our sins.
