And one of them struck the bond servant of the high priest and cut off his ear, the right one. But Jesus said, Permit them to go so far [as to seize Me]. And He touched the little (insignificant) ear and healed him. (Luke 22:50-51, Amplified)
So here’s the scene, Jesus and His disciples are surrounded by men with swords and clubs. They have come to arrest Him. For what? For doing good and healing all.
A mob had come. It was a riotous scene. It was a chaotic scene. In the midst of it all a bond servant’s ear is cut off. The bible calls it an insignificant ear.
Jesus is about to be arrested, but He stops for a moment and heals a man who is among those who have come to take Him away. And He heals this man of something that is referred to as insignificant.
But it wasn’t insignificant to Jesus. He didn’t care that it was someone among the mob that has come to lead Him to His death.
At this most crucial time in the Messiah’s life, He stops, He heals, He loves.
