Matthew: Jesus is in “His own town” which we may think to be Nazareth – perhaps not. Is own townsmen were willing to heave Jesus off a cliff at one point so He may have ”shaken the dust off His feet” and moved to Capernaum, the home of Peter, Andrew, James, John, and Levi. So He sees the paralytic (whom some say was responsible about his condition) and comforts him by telling him his sins were forgiven which were far more harmful than the man’s handicap (which He also healed).
