New International Version
17 This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country.(A)
Jesus and John the Baptist(B)
20 When the men came to Jesus, they said, “John the Baptist sent us to you to ask, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?’”
21 At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses(E) and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. 22 So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy[a] are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.(F) 23 Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.”
- Luke 7:22 The Greek word traditionally translated leprosy was used for various diseases affecting the skin.
