PhD’s Pharisees a Paralytic and Jesus sermon video. PhD’s, Pharisees, a Paralytic, and Jesus (Luke 5:15-26). Do you know any “paralytics”? Do you know people with a paralyzed life? Do you know people with a paralyzed marriage, paralyzed family, paralyzed by addictions, paralyzed by sin? Religion rejects them. Jesus wants to heal. Are you carrying them to Jesus, or just to “church”? These men cared enough about their friend to carry him to Jesus.
