In Jesus’ day there were many who were deemed hopeless and looked down upon by the Jewish people – like women of ill repute and Samaritans.  But the most hopeless in Jesus’ day, from a Jewish perspective, were lepers.  They were not allowed to be part of the larger community and were exiled to a community of other lepers.  In Jesus’ interaction with this one leper He communicates love, compassion, and physical healing.
