    Barnes' Notes on Mark 2:5

    Their faith - Their confidence or belief that he could heal them.

    Son - Literally, "child." The Hebrews used the words "son" and "child" with a great latitude of signification. They were applied to children, to grandchildren, to adopted children, to any descendants, to disciples, followers, young people, and to dependents. See the notes at Matthew 1:1. In this place it denotes affection or kindness. It was a word of consolation - an endearing appellation, applied by the Saviour to the sick man to show his "compassion," to inspire confidence, and to assure him that he would heal him.

    We never saw it on this fashion - Literally, "We never saw it so." We never saw anything like this.
