And this report about Him went throughout all Judea and all the surrounding region. Then the disciples of John reported to him concerning all these things.

Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”
