Okay, let's cut through the pious tape: The "I want to - be made clean" fellow that Jesus cured went on to mess him up!
1. Jesus cured him.
2. He said 'keep a lid on it.'
3. The fellow told everyone under the sun.
4. Jesus could no longer come and go openly and had to from that point on slink in the back door.
It's a good thing he was not like that last pointy-headed boss that you had. Otherwise, he might have thrown the guy's leprosy right back at him.
