12 And it happened that, while he was in a certain city, behold, there was a man full of leprosy who, upon seeing Jesus and falling to his face, petitioned him, saying: "Lord, if you are willing, you are able to cleanse me."
13 And extending his hand, he touched him, saying: "I am willing. Be cleansed." And at once, the leprosy departed from him.
14 And he instructed him that he should tell no one, "But go, show yourself to the priest, and make the offering for your cleansing, just as Moses has commanded, as a testimony for them."
15 Yet word of him traveled around all the more. And great crowds came together, so that they might listen and be cured by him from their infirmities.
16 And he withdrew into the desert and prayed.
1 John 5:5-13
5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God!
6 This is the One who came by water and blood: Jesus Christ. Not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit is the One who testifies that the Christ is the Truth.
7 For there are Three who give testimony in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. And these Three are One.
8 And there are three who give testimony on earth: the Spirit, and the water, and the blood. And these three are one.
9 If we accept the testimony of men, then the testimony of God is greater. For this is the testimony of God, which is greater: that he has testified about his Son.
10 Whoever believes in the Son of God, holds the testimony of God within himself. Whoever does not believe in the Son, makes him a liar, because he does not believe in the testimony which God has testified about his Son.
11 And this is the testimony which God has given to us: Eternal Life. And this Life is in his Son.
12 Whoever has the Son, has Life. Whoever does not have the Son, does not have Life.
13 I am writing this to you, so that you may know that you have Eternal Life: you who believe in the name of the Son of God.
