This account of the four men lower their paralytic friend through the roof of Peter’s house reveals important information about the true nature of our reality.

The purpose I came up with is to encourage faith and commitment to Jesus by looking at our spiritual needs and pointing to Jesus as the only one who can fulfill those needs.

In testing the purpose for the lesson, it’s important to ask questions. These are some of the questions I asked.

  1. Does my purpose express purpose for the learner/hearer?
  2. Is it based on love?
  3. Am I serving others by teaching this?
  4. What is invisible in the text and lesson that I need to bring out and make visible?
  5. What is in it for them?
