Lepers were contagious and were ostracized from the community. Jesus did not just heal the leper, but he touched him. Jesus had the power to heal him with words, or even with just a thought, but he reached out and touched his broken, wounded skin. Jesus knew the leper needed more than physical healing, he needed physical touch. He needed love and acceptance.
