Healing In The New Testament

Healing in the New Testament is a topic that has been studied and debated for centuries. The miracles of Jesus are often cited as evidence of his divinity and of his status as the Son of God, but there is much more to be learned from these stories than just their religious significance.

The first thing to consider is why Jesus healed people at all. He did not heal everyone who came to him, just those who were suffering from serious ailments or deformities. There were some people with minor afflictions who went to him asking for healing, but he did not always grant their requests.

It seems that Jesus chose carefully who he would heal—those whose lives were deeply affected by their physical conditions and those whose sorrows would be lifted by the miracle itself. This raises questions about why Jesus chose not to heal certain people, and whether or not their ailments were too minor for him to bother with them.

One thing we can be sure of is that Jesus did not heal everyone who came before him because he thought they deserved it somehow; it seems more likely that he was trying to use his powers wisely so as not to abuse them or waste them on frivolous requests.
