To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 7.14–37 on February 28, In the year of our Lord Christ 2019

By Don Ruhl

Someone could not hear and was not able to speak, but when his acquaintances heard of Jesus and that He was nearby, they brought the deaf and mute person to Jesus, believing that He could heal the person:

Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him (Mark 7.32).

They knew that if Jesus merely put His hand on the person, he would no longer be deaf nor have an impediment in his speech. Truly, if Jesus was the Creator, He could restore the ability to hear and to speak and as Mark showed in the rest of the narrative, Jesus did perform the healing. Jesus is the Son of God.
