Instances Jesus demonstrated His love.

Blind Bartimaeus. Mark 10; 46-52

Jesus and His disciples were passing through Jericho, on their way to Jerusalem. Many people followed Jesus. As Jesus passed by one road, Bartimaeus, a blind man called upon him to have mercy upon him:

Jesus, son of David, have mercy upon me”

Some of the people asked Bartimaeus to keep quiet, but he shouted till Jesus heard his voice. Jesus asked the people to bring Bartimaeus to him. When he arrived, Jesus asked him what he wanted from him.

He said he wanted to receive his sight. Jesus showed His love by healing him. Jesus said:

“Go your way; your faith has made you well.”


Zacchaeus. Lk 19: 1-10

Zacchaeus was a tax collector of the city of Jericho and learned that Jesus the prophet was passing through the city. Since Zacchaeus was short in stature, he ran ahead of the crowd and climb up into a Sycamore tree to have a better view of Jesus. When Jesus arrived, he saw him on the tree and said to him: “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today” 

Zacchaeus was very joyful, but the crowd grumbled that Jesus was making friend with a sinner.

After arriving at Zacchaeus house, he said to Jesus that he will give half of his goods to the poor and return in fourfold to those he has cheated.

Jesus then said to him that salvation has entered his house: “For the son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost”


Mary Magdalene. Lk 7: 37- 49

Jesus showed love to Mary Magdalene even though many people said she was a sinner that Jesus should not associate with her.

Mary Magdalene put oil on Jesus head, she wiped his feet with her hairs and tears, she poured perfume on his feet and Jesus forgave her all her sins.

Mary Magdalene later became one of Jesus disciples.
