Carl Bloch completed this great masterwork in 1883. The scene displays the compassion of the Savior for the sick and the afflicted. The Gospel of John relates the touching tale of a man, ill for 38 years, waiting at the pool of Bethesda for a miracle of healing.
Jesus, seeing him in this wretched condition, asked him, "Wilt thou be made whole?" The man told Jesus that he had no one to place him in the water at the time the healings were to take place. Jesus responded, "Rise, take up thy bed, and walk."
The man was healed immediately, his body changed by the words of the Savior.
