Luke’s account of Jesus healing a thankful leper is not merely an illustration of the importance of gratitude. Rather, as Alistair Begg explains, it powerfully demonstrates who Jesus is and why He came—not to affirm those who trusted in their family background or religious observations, but to rescue the lost. Only those who have a personal encounter with Christ and fall at His feet in praise have truly been transformed by God.
11On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee.
