know his voice - up on the roof

Do you recall a story on the Gospels about how a paralyzed man's friends were so concerned for him to get to Jesus that they dug a hole through the roof of the house to do do? That incident forms the essence of the readings for today in our church-wide Know His Voice project in the Gospels. The story is told by three of the four Gospel writers: Matthew 9:1-8, Luke 5:17-26 and Mark 2:1-12. We know about the "hole in the roof" part of the story from Mark and Luke's accounts; Matthew is remarkably silent about that part. Odd.
