The paralytic’s friends have just plopped him in front of Jesus (yes, they literally carried him in). Even though there’s not a lot of action in this impromptu skit, there’s way more audience engagement and participation, simply because it’s live and physical. The difference between teaching this story from behind a lectern and getting down on the ground with a volunteer is all the difference in the world.
