Missing the Emotion

 

Last Sunday, I was preaching from Mark 7:31-37, in which Jesus heals a deaf man. Can you imagine his emotions at being able to hear and speak for the first time?  When reading through texts like this, it is often too easy to miss the emotions that would be involved in the text. For that reason, I showed the above video of a woman who received a middle-ear implant. Her emotions at hearing for the first time overwhelmed her. I believe that the deaf man that Jesus healed must have felt similar emotions.
