Mark 7:24-37

Eew!

[...] Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went by way of Sidon towards the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. They brought to him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they begged him to lay his hand on him. He took him aside in private, away from the crowd, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue.

Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, "Ephphatha," that is, "Be opened."

And immediately his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. Then Jesus ordered them to tell no one; but the more he ordered them, the more zealously they proclaimed it.

They were astounded beyond measure, saying, "He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."

Expectorating Someone?!

Cartoon Cool Stuff

This healing really wasn't for dramatic effect, since Jesus took the man "aside in private." It is possible that the deliberate moves were really more for the benefit of the man being healed. Since this man could not hear, Jesus uses touch and gestures to communicate the healing. A loving God meets us where we are and treats us with undeserved respect and dignity. Now that's something to go tell everybody about!
