"And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day." Luke 5:26 KJB
As the people watched Jesus heal this man they were very perplexed. They were amazed, though they praised God but then they were fearful and thought his actions were very strange.
Maybe they wanted to believe Jesus yet they did not want to go against the Pharisees. They allowed who they considered "men of God" to keep them from knowing who Jesus really was.
Do not let any one or anything stand between you and God. If what you are hearing does not line up along with the Bible then you need to stay with your Bible. Stay with what God says. The Bible says these people were fearful. Does your fear of going against the grain keep you from knowing Jesus? Are his works to strange for you to get a closer look? I hope not.
