Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? Bible other translations

“Which is easier.” Which is easier to say and accomplish, declaring someone’s sins are forgiven, or divine healing? They are equally easy. They both require authority from God and the faith to walk out on the revelation God gives. The Pharisees did not see this simple truth. They believed in divine healing but did not believe a person could have the authority to forgive sins. But God gives authority to do both.
