Luke Chapter 5:12-13 is the story about Jesus’ encounter with a man who had leprosy. For me this chapter has always been at the very core of the way Jesus taught- not simply with words but also with actions.

While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy.When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”

Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.
