Geneva Notes/ Commentary on Luke 5:12-16

From the Geneva Notes.

Lu 5:12
5:12 {2} And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city,
behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on
[his] face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt,
thou canst make me clean.

(2) Christ, by healing the leper with only his touch and
sending him to the priest, witnesses that it is he, through
whom and by whom, apprehended by faith, all we who are
unclean according to the law are pronounced to be pure and
clean by the witness of God himself.

Lu 5:15
5:15 {3} But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him:
and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be
healed by him of their infirmities.

(3) Christ would rather be well known by his doctrine than by
miracles, and therefore he departs from those that seek him
as a physician of the body, and not as the author of
salvation.
