The man knelt before Jesus (Mt 17:14-17:14)

“When they came

To the crowd,

A man came to Jesus.

He knelt before him.”

 

Καὶ ἐλθόντων πρὸς τὸν ὄχλον προσῆλθεν αὐτῷ ἄνθρωπος γονυπετῶν αὐτὸν

 

As Jesus left the small group of his disciples, they went towards the crowds (Καὶ ἐλθόντων πρὸς τὸν ὄχλον).  A man then approached Jesus and knelt before him (προσῆλθεν αὐτῷ ἄνθρωπος γονυπετῶν αὐτὸν).  There is something similar to this in Luke, chapter 9:37-38.  However, only Matthew has the man kneel in front of Jesus.
