This controversy over the identity of Jesus was also evident he was on earth. Jesus used different approaches to reveal his personal identity. Jesus used the healing of the paralytic to settle the identity matter as found in Mark 2:1-13. This exegetical study therefore considered the pericope (Mark 2:1-13) bringing out the central theme of the passage which has to do with Jesus and self-identity.
