This book presents in readable, nontechnical language the findings of the latest biblical scholarship on one important aspect of "who Jesus was"--Jesus as healer. It guides readers through the New Testament's portraits of Jesus, setting the stage for these portraits by looking at sickness and its treatment in Jesus' day. The author concludes with a carefully weighed answer to the question "did Jesus really heal?", and offers topics for discussion and suggestions for further reading that allow the interested reader to explore the subject in more detail.
