"Stretch forth thine hand"

In the third chapter of Mark's Gospel is given an account of Christ Jesus' healing of a withered hand. We read that Jesus said to the afflicted one, "Stretch forth thine hand;" and upon obeying the Master's command, he was immediately healed.

The writer has many times pondered this healing, and wondered why Jesus told the sufferer to do that particular thing, namely, to stretch forth his hand, in order to receive healing.
