Jesus made them angry! One thing about it, no one encountered Jesus without some kind of response, and frequently it was a response of anger or unbelief. The scribes and Pharisees were angry when Jesus forgave the paralytic his sin and healed him. Jesus had pronounced forgiveness and that was something only God could do… and they thought He had blasphemed, and knew that He had certainly overstepped the bounds of Jewish tradition and the Law. The scribes and Pharisees were genuinely angry about this incident.
