  1. Hello,
    Fascinating as usual. Thanks for posting.
    A question: in part 2, around 3.00, re Jesus’ claims to messiahship, Dr Lindsey says that in the story of the paralytic, Jesus uses the word ‘forgiven’, at the back of which is a Hebrew word from the Hebrew Scriptures meaning divine forgiveness – does anyone know what that word is (in Hebrew) and where it is found in the OT?
    Thank you.

    • Dear Kyun Ngui,
      Lindsey is probably referring to the Hebrew verb ס-ל-ח “to forgive.” This verb appears frequently in Leviticus 4 and 5. According to Lindsey, Jesus said to the paralyzed man (nislechu lecha chatoteicha, “forgiven are your sins”). You can read more about this in Robert Lindsey’s book, Jesus: Rabbi and Lord, in the chapter entitled “Healing Everywhere.” (Jesus: Rabbi and Lord is available as an e-book on this website.)
      Blessings,

      • Hi Joshua,
        Many thanks for your quick response. I’m afraid I didn’t know you had replied until I logged in today, despite having ticked the box to be notified of follow-up comments.
        Thanks for the reference to Robert Lindsey’s e-book; I had read it but this part didn’t jump up at the time!

        Kyun
