Jesus as Healer

 
“Preaching, teaching and healing” is the usual description of Jesus’ ministry. The preaching and teaching seem straightforward enough, but we never know what to do with the healing part. Conditioned by our culture to revere science, and not yet fully accepting the strong link between our minds and our physical bodies, we are at a loss to interpret Jesus’ healing miracles. Body, mind, spirit… there are healing stories recorded for all of these. Too many to simply discount.
