The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Jesus' Authority to Forgive Sins (9:1-8)
Jesus' Authority to Forgive Sins (9:1-8)

Jesus' authority to heal the body testifies to his authority to forgive (9:6-7; compare 9:12). Jesus' authority (vv. 6, 8) is a central focus of the context (7:29; 8:9, 27; compare 28:18). This narrative teaches us a number of lessons.
