Jesus had gone across the sea of Galilee to the people of the tribe of Gad. There were one of the 12 tribes of Israel. They didn’t cross over the Jordan river into the land of promise. Jesus had returned to Capernaum. There was a man sick of the palsy, lying on his pallet. Jesus saw his faith and said to him, thy sins are forgiven. Some scribes and pharisees began to complain about Jesus. Jesus knew what was in their hearts and said to the man with palsy, rise, take up thy pallet and go home. Jesus did this to show them that God have given Him the power to forgive sin. The scribes and pharisees had the same problem as the Gadarenes. They refused to cross over into the Promise Land. Because they refused, they lost their inheritance from God. This is what happens to anyone who refuses to accept Jesus and return to the Land of Promise, heaven.
