Mark 1:40-45; Matthew 8:2-4; Luke 5:12-16 Jesus travelled around the area called Galilee teaching about God. Many people began to follow Him. A man with a terrible skin disease called leprosy came to Jesus. He begged Jesus to heal him. Jesus put out His hand and touched the man and immediately he was healed. After that many people came to Him. He could not enter the towns because of the crowds.
