Capernaum Synagogue: Feeling the Touch of Jesus


As we watch Christ through Peter’s eyes in Mark 1:41, we see the compassion in Christ’s touch of the leper who came to Him in this place so long ago. Like the leper we all come defiled and hopeless to the feet of Jesus, and we look up asking for His touch. In love Jesus touches us, taking our defilement upon Himself and giving us a fresh new eternal beginning. This touch pictures the justification we have in Jesus, erasing the record of our sin, taking our punishment upon Himself, and making us blameless saints!
