Healing in the New Testament

This book Healing in the New Testament is the second of two volumes dealing with the theme of Healing in the Whole Bible. The first volume studied the healing covenant in the Old Testament, while this explores the position of the healing covenant in the New Testament.  Here is sacred territory indeed!  I tremble before the very title of the great Book upon which this lesser study is based: The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  How can anyone faithfully reveal the height and depth of the glorious revelation of Christ contained in those Spirit-inbreathed gospels and letters?

Healing in the New Testament

Why did Christ devote so much of his limited time to this one area of human need?  Because, in part, the fruit of his ministry demanded Healing in the New Testament era,  Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the very works themselves. (Joh 14:11)

With only three years of public ministry before him we might have expected Christ to concentrate solely on teaching the people, especially his disciples. Instead, when the time came for him to go to Jerusalem and there to die, his disciples were still quite ignorant about the real identity of their Lord and the real purpose of his mission (see Mk. 9:30-37; Lu. 9:51-56; 18:31-34; 24:17-21, 25-26).

Yet despite an urgent need to teach his disciples, Jesus allowed himself to be constantly pressed by the crowd, and he gave himself unsparingly to the ministry of healing (Mk 3:10; 5:24; 6:30-34; 7:24).

If we can find out why Jesus poured so much of himself into his healing ministry we will then have a sound basis on which to decide whether he is still offering himself to the sick as the Great Physician.

I tremble before the very title of the great Book upon which this lesser study is based. How can anyone faithfully reveal the height and depth of the glorious revelation of Christ contained in those Spirit-inbreathed gospels and letters? I have read through the New Testament probably 40 times and devoted additional thousands of hours to meticulous study of almost every part of it.

Let us investigate further why Christ healed the sick.
