Each traveller, in turn, avoids the leper man and reinforces his sense of loneliness, isolation and distance from the human race.

In the course of such a short space of time four distinct emotions emerge. All the ancient texts of Mark are clear that Jesus was moved by the sight of the leper man, moved by his plaintive plea for help, moved by his humble act of kneeling.
