"Where are the nine?"

In the seventh chapter of Luke's Gospel we read that John the Baptist sent two of his disciples to Jesus saying, "Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?" John was seeking proof of Jesus' Messiahship. Jesus' reply was preceded by proofs of healing. Then he said, "Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard." In this practical way Jesus sought to convince the inquiring thought that Truth heals and restores harmony.

Again, in the seventeenth chapter of the same Gospel, we read that after Jesus had healed the ten lepers he observed that only one returned to give thanks or to acknowledge that he was healed. "Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?" was his inquiry.
