I would like to know how the Old and New Testaments view persons born with a disability (cleft Palette, hearing impared, down syndrome, learning disabilities, etc.). And how would they have been treated in the sense of those leading the religious institutes (i.e. priests, Pharisees, early Christian leaders, etc.)? I know that through our own deeper understanding that these are not sins, but at one time people viewed these as sins or sins of their fathers. Only until we have grown in our limited wisdom have we understood that these are not brought about by anyone sinning. Thank you!
