Sabbath Healings of Jesus

1. In The Beginning

During his earthly ministry, Jesus healed many people. “A great throng of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon … had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases … for power was coming from him and

2.The Man with an Unclean Spirit

The book of Mark opens with an account of the beginning of our Lord’s ministry. Immediately after his baptism, Jesus
endured a 40-day experience in the wilderness. There, while meditating and praying over what the Father’s will was for his ministry, Jesus was confronted by Satan, who tried in vain to entice, deceive, and tempt him. Read more…

8. To Heal or Not to Heal? Healing Man’s Inability to Stand in Righteousness

It was the Sabbath and we find Jesus teaching in the synagogue. Luke 13:1 (NLT) says, “About this time Jesus was informed
that Pilate had murdered some people from Galilee as they were sacrificing at the Temple in Jerusalem.” This would have been a harrowing experience for the Jews that witnessed the aberration, and they looked to Jesus to help them make sense of it. Read more…

Dropsy is an old term for the swelling of soft tissue due to the accumulation of excess water. In years gone by, a person might be said to have dropsy. Thus, the person might have edema or
