Continuation 4: 4. The resolution of the moral conflict: Jesus
removes these doubts, he is allowed to heal, and he grants the sick person forgiveness of sins.
5. The resolution of the inner conflict: The sick person is now freed from the stigma that he himself is to blame for his illness, but he is not yet healed.
Is the forgiveness of sins only a pious saying after all? The scribes, 2:6-7, and Jesus himself, 2:8-9, feel this way, therefore he affirms his will to heal.
