31 Individual Healings of Jesus Christ

There has never been a claim made by any other individual, group, or religion in history that they healed all sickness, disease, or infirmity. In the Gospels there are many scriptures that state that Jesus healed all [see Mass Healing List]. However, in the Gospels we find approximately 30-40 individual healing events, depending on how you classify the event. We know that each healing event is significant because it was signaled out by the Holy Spirit to be recorded. Out of all the healings that Jesus did in the four Gospels, these individual cases were chosen to represent the basic healing concepts of the New Testament. Each particular healing event demonstrates at least one important concept about healing. Sometimes Jesus drew attention to the important concept such as in [Mark 2:9-10, Mark 5:30, Luke 13:15-16, Matthew 15:26, Mark 5:36, Mark 10:52]. Other times the concept is demonstrated by Jesus, then explained [Matthew 17:19]. Many believers think of healing as a "fringe benefit". They don't realize that healing is part of the atoning work of Jesus Christ.

"Nearly one-fifth of the Gospel accounts is devoted to Jesus' healing ministry and the discussion occasioned by it. Out of 3,779 verses in the four Gospels, 727 relate specifically to the healing of physical and mental illness and the resurrection of the dead. Except for a discussion of miracles in general, the attention devoted to the healing ministry of Jesus is far greater than that devoted to any one kind of experience."
