Earlier in Matthew, it tells us that as Jesus traveled about preaching and teaching the Good News, He also healed every disease and sickness among the people. And as the news spread, people brought to Him all who were ill with various diseases, those who were suffering with severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and He healed them. (Matthew 4:23-24) Now for many in the crowd, they were only there for Dinner and a Show… and Jesus was just an oddity or freak of nature who could provide them with entertainment. But for others who had loved ones suffering and in misery, it was a chance for a miracle. They might not have understood what was happening, or how it was done, or even who this Jesus person was…but here stood their loved one made whole and in sound health and all they could do was praise God for it.
