Jesus, the Son of God, was a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief, rejected by men; yet He had so much power, not just power in heaven, but power on earth. Why did God send His Son alone into a world which would kill Him? To demontrate two things: firstly, that He had power on earth to heal the sick, and secondly, that He could forgive sin. This is why He could say to the paralytic, "Be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you: arise, take up your bed and walk!"
