Healing In The Bible

We recommend spending time reading through the Gospels looking at the way Jesus healed people of all kinds of sickness.

Jesus said he only did what his Father showed him to do and that if you have seen Jesus you have seen God the Father.

We believe it is God's will to heal people today. Here are some scriptures you can read.

Seven Ways Jesus Healed

He spoke to the sickness and commanded healing (Luke 17:11-19)

He placed his hands on the sick< /span> (Matt 20:29-34; Mark 1:40-42; Luke 4:40)

Through the power He carried (Matthew 14:34-26; Mark 4:40 & 5:25-34)

Through the faith of others (Luke 5:18-25)

Through the gift of healing (John 5:1-9)

Unorthodox ways (Mark 8:22-25; John 9:1-7)

By empowering his followers (Matt 10:1; Mark 6:7-13; Luke 9:1-2;10:1,8,9)

There is no formula for healing through the power of Jesus; there are some common ways we have seen healing come. We always have to rely upon faith in Jesus rather than a process or method.


Many Healed - All Healed

Matthew - 4:23-24; 9:35; 11:5; 12:15; 14:14; 14:36; 15:30

Mark - 1:32-34; 3:10; 6:5-6; 6:53-56

Luke - 4:40; 6:17-19; 9:11

The best way to understand how important it was for Jesus to heal people physically and set them free from oppression is to read each of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John). Stop and think about each healing that is detailed. Imagine the scene as hundreds or thousands gather around Him and all are healed and set free. The Bible says that Jesus has given that same power and authority to His followers today. We are beginning to witness this same power today.
