The crippled woman

Luke 13:10-14

10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues,
11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all.
12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”
13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.

About this painting

When Jesus saw her, He called her forward (vs.12) and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.

When Jesus is teaching in a synagogue He sees the woman, who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. As a daughter of Abraham, she should be, as Jesus states, set free from what bound her, on the Sabbath.

In the painting, the scroll, in which the promises to Abraham are written, is on the speakers desk.
