After preaching the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), Jesus came down the hillside followed by a large crowd. A leper approached Jesus and was miraculously healed of his skin disease.
As described in the book of Matthew, which is in the New Testament of the Bible:
When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean."
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy.
The word "leprosy" can refer to a variety of diseases that affect a person's skin.
