Why Didn’t the Nine Lepers Return?
Why did only one cleansed leper return to thank Jesus? The following are nine suggested reasons why the nine did not return:
- One waited to see if the cure was real.
- One waited to see if it would last.
- One said he would see Jesus later.
- One decided that he had never had leprosy.
- One said he would have gotten well anyway.
- One gave the glory to the priests.
- One said, “O, well, Jesus didnt really do anything.”
- One said, “Any rabbi could have done it.”
- One said, “I was already much improved.”
