The Healing of the Paralytic Cross is a poignant image of one of Jesus’s miraculous healings and makes a very meaning-filled Christian gift. This solid bronze wall cross, conceived and fashioned by the hands of a master artist in Germany, measures 3.25 inches high and 2.75 inches wide, and will hang beautifully on a wall in home or office.
Here we see the paralytic man who has just been lowered through the roof on his mat. Jesus stands beside him, and heals him (Luke 8:12-25). What a beautiful image for all who turn to Jesus in times of need. The paralytic man’s friends and family were undaunted by the difficult circumstances—they brought him before Jesus by removing part of the roof and lowering him down. Their faith was great.
The most important healing is, of course, that of the soul. Jesus says, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”
A Solid Bronze Masterpiece and a Perfect Gift for Healing Professionals
What a perfect gift for the healers in our lives, for all who are determined to help others achieve their best degree of wholeness—in body, mind or spirit—working with dedication and tirelessness.
In German on the back of the cross: Jesus fragte die Umstehenden: Was ist leichter zu sagen, deine Sünden sind dir vergeben oder zum Gelähmten, steh auf und geh, du bist geheilt? Sogleich stand der Gelähmte auf vor ihren Augen. Voll Lobpreis Gottes ging er nach Hause. (Luk 5:25)
Translation: Jesus asked those standing around him, “Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’?”. . . Immediately the paralyzed man stood up in front of them . . . and went home praising God.
