NEW TESTAMENT HEALING PASSAGES

Articles
All of the New Testament Healing Passages Matthew 4:23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. Matthew 4:24 News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon- possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and he healed them. Notice that Jesus healed every sick person. It is still His will to heal people today. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Matthew 8:2 A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Matthew 8:3 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cured of his leprosy. Mark 1:40 A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Mark 1:41 Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Mark 1:42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured. Luke 5:12 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Luke 5:13 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him. Jesus was willing to heal the sick back then, and He is still willing to heal the sick today. Notice that He did the healing by laying hands on the man and commanding the man’s body to be healed. Jesus did not pray for the healing (in the sense of asking God to heal the man), He commanded it. Healing works exactly the same way today. Matthew 8:5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. Matthew 8:6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering.” Matthew 8:7 Jesus said to him, “I will go and heal him.” Matthew 8:8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. Matthew 8:9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” Matthew 8:10 When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, “I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. Matthew 8:11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 8:12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 8:13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! It will be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that very hour. Luke 7:2 There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. Luke 7:3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. Luke 7:4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, Luke 7:5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.” Luke 7:6 So Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: “Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. Luke 7:7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. Luke 7:8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” Luke 7:9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” Luke 7:10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well. Healing requires faith today just as it did two thousand years ago. Matthew 8:14 When Jesus came into Peter’s house, he saw Peter’s mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever. Matthew 8:15 He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him. Mark 1:30 Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Jesus about her. Mark 1:31 So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them. Luke 4:38 Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her. Luke 4:39 So he bent over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began to wait on them. Again we see Jesus healing someone by laying hands on the person. Notice that she got up and was healed. This is an important principle that we will see over and over in these Scripture passages. It is important for the sick person to put his or her faith into action. Many times the healings don’t happen until people mix action with their faith. This is just as true today as it was in the first century. Also, notice that Jesus did not pray for the woman to be healed, He spoke to the fever and rebuked it, and it left her. Healing often works exactly the same way today. Matthew 8:16 When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. Matthew 8:17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: “He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases.” Mark 1:32 That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon- possessed. Mark 1:33 The whole town gathered at the door, Mark 1:34 and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was. Luke 4:40 When the sun was setting, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them. Luke 4:41 Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew he was the Christ. Over and over Jesus healed all of the sick people who were brought to Him. It is His will to heal, then and now. Notice that He did not pray for the demons to leave, He rebuked  them and commanded them to come out, Hedrove them out with a word. Deliverance works just the same way today and is often just as easy as in this passage. Matthew 8:28 When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way. Matthew 8:29 “What do you want with us, Son of God?” they shouted. “Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?” Matthew 8:30 Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding. Matthew 8:31 The demons begged Jesus, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.” Matthew 8:32 He said to them, “Go!” So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water. Mark 5:1 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. Mark 5:2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet him. Mark 5:3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain. Mark 5:4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Mark 5:5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. Mark 5:6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. Mark 5:7 He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won’t torture me!” Mark 5:8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you evil spirit!” Mark 5:9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” Mark 5:10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area. Mark 5:11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. Mark 5:12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” Mark 5:13 He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned. Luke 8:26 They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee. Luke 8:27 When Jesus stepped ashore, he was met by a demon-possessed man from the town. For a long time this man had not worn clothes or lived in a house, but had lived in the tombs. Luke 8:28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell at his feet, shouting at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don’t torture me!” Luke 8:29 For Jesus had commanded the evil spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places. Luke 8:30 Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “Legion,” he replied, because many demons had gone into him. Luke 8:31 And they begged him repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss. Luke 8:32 A large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside. The demons begged Jesus to let them go into them, and he gave them permission. Luke 8:33 When the demons came out of the man, they went into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned. Notice that Jesus first commanded the demon to come out, then he asked the man or the demon a question (“What is your name?”) to get some more information, then He completed the deliverance. Healing and deliverance work the same way today. We should interview the sick person to get some information before doing the healing, then we should ask further questions after the healing to determine if there are any further needs. Notice in Luke 8:29 (above) that the demons did not immediately leave when Jesus commanded them to go. Sometimes we have to be persistent when doing deliverance. Matthew 9:2 Some men brought to him a paralytic, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.” Matthew 9:3 At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, “This fellow is blaspheming!” Matthew 9:4 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, “Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? Matthew 9:5 Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? Matthew 9:6 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. . . .” Then he said to the paralytic, “Get up, take your mat and go home.” Matthew 9:7 And the man got up and went home. Matthew 9:8 When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to men. Mark 2:3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. Mark 2:4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on. Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Mark 2:6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, Mark 2:7 “Why does this fellow talk like that? He’s blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Mark 2:8 Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, “Why are you thinking these things? Mark 2:9 Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’? Mark 2:10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . . .” He said to the paralytic, Mark 2:11 “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” Mark 2:12 He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!” Luke 5:17 One day as he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law, who had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem, were sitting there. And the power of the Lord was present for him to heal the sick. Luke 5:18 Some men came carrying a paralytic on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. Luke 5:19 When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus. Luke 5:20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” Luke 5:21 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law began thinking to themselves, “Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Luke 5:22 Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? Luke 5:23 Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? Luke 5:24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. . . .” He said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” Luke 5:25 Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God. Here again we see that healing requires faith. Also, we see Jesus commanding the man to be healed (not praying for God to heal the man), and we see the man putting his faith into action and then receiving his healing. Matthew 9:18 While he was saying this, a ruler came and knelt before him and said, “My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live.” Matthew 9:19 Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples. Matthew 9:23 When Jesus entered the ruler’s house and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd, Matthew 9:24 he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. Matthew 9:25 After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up. Mark 5:22 Then one of the synagogue rulers, named Jairus, came there. Seeing Jesus, he fell at his feet Mark 5:23 and pleaded earnestly with him, “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.” Mark 5:24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him. Mark 5:35 While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher any more?” Mark 5:36 Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” Mark 5:37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James. Mark 5:38 When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. Mark 5:39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” Mark 5:40 But they laughed at him. After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was. Mark 5:41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). Mark 5:42 Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. Luke 8:41 Then a man named Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house Luke 8:42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying. As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. Luke 8:49 While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher any more.” Luke 8:50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” Luke 8:51 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. Luke 8:52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.” Luke 8:53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. Luke 8:54 But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” Luke 8:55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. This is another example of Jesus healing someone by the laying-on of hands. Another point is demonstrated here as well. Jesus stressed that the father of the dead girl needed to have faith, and because healing requires faith it sometimes helps to have all those who are full of unbelief to leave the room. Even Jesus told those who had no faith to go outside so that the healing could take place. Matthew 9:20 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. Matthew 9:21 She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Matthew 9:22 Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed from that moment. Mark 5:25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. Mark 5:26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. Mark 5:27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, Mark 5:28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” Mark 5:29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. Mark 5:30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” Mark 5:31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’” Mark 5:32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. Mark 5:33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. Mark 5:34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” Luke 8:43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. Luke 8:44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. Luke 8:45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” Luke 8:46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” Luke 8:47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. Luke 8:48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.” This is another example of the laying-on of hands, but in reverse. The sick woman laid hands on Jesus’ garment, and she was healed because she put her faith into action. This method of healing works today just as well as it did back then. Many people have been healed in this way because it releases the sick person’s faith and allows the healing to take place. Notice that lots of people were pressing against Jesus, but the woman’s faith drew healing power from Jesus. In fact, this healing took Jesus by surprise, because He didn’t know who had been healed. Jesus did not “do” this healing, it was her faith that brought about the healing. Matthew 9:27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” Matthew 9:28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied. Matthew 9:29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith will it be done to you”; Matthew 9:30 and their sight was restored. Another example of Jesus healing people by laying hands on them. We are specifically told that He laid hands on the problem area, the men’s eyes. It is usually best to lay hands as close to the problem area as possible because this allows the healing power of the Holy Spirit to be applied as directly as possible to the sickness or injury. We will see Jesus doing this over and over. Notice that Jesus said the healing was based on their faith. This is just as true today as it was back then. Matthew 9:32 While they were going out, a man who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus. Matthew 9:33 And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.” Matthew 9:34 But the Pharisees said, “It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons.” This passage demonstrates that physical afflictions are sometimes caused by demons. Cast out the demon and then either the affliction is gone or else it can easily be cured. This is just as true today as it was back then. Also, notice the reaction of the religious leaders (the Pharisees). They accused the things of God as being of the devil. Christians sometimes do the same thing today, so we need to expect a certain amount of persecution from our brothers and sisters when we step out in obedience to Christ by laying hands on the sick. Love them anyway! Matthew 9:35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. Matthew 9:36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Jesus had compassion on people, and He healed every sick person who came to Him. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8), and He still has compassion on us and He still heals by the laying-on of hands. The only difference is that now He lives in us and He uses our hands for healing the sick. Matthew 10:1 He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Matthew 10:6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. Matthew 10:7 As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near.’ Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Mark 3:14 He appointed twelve–designating them apostles –that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach Mark 3:15 and to have authority to drive out demons. Mark 6:7 Calling the Twelve to him, he sent them out two by two and gave them authority over evil spirits. Mark 6:12 They went out and preached that people should repent. Mark 6:13 They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them. Luke 9:1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, Luke 9:2 and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. Luke 9:6 So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere. Christ gave the twelve disciples the authority to heal every disease and sickness, and He gave us the very same authority in the Great Commission. Matthew 11:2 When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples Matthew 11:3 to ask him, “Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?” Matthew 11:4 Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: Matthew 11:5 The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Luke 7:21 At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. Luke 7:22 So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. In addition to Jesus’ compassion for the sick, one of the biggest purposes for healing was to prove that Jesus is the Son of God and to bring people into the Kingdom. We are part of the same New Testament Church that the apostles were a part of (there is no such thing as an “early Church” and a “modern Church,” it is all the same Church!), and healing has the same purpose and the same importance today as it did back then. Matthew 12:9 Going on from that place, he went into their synagogue, Matthew 12:10 and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, they asked him, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?” Matthew 12:11 He said to them, “If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? Matthew 12:12 How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.” Matthew 12:13 Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other. Mark 3:1 Another time he went into the synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Mark 3:2 Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath. Mark 3:3 Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, “Stand up in front of everyone.” Mark 3:4 Then Jesus asked them, “Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they remained silent. Mark 3:5 He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored. Luke 6:6 On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled. Luke 6:7 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath. Luke 6:8 But Jesus knew what they were thinking and said to the man with the shriveled hand, “Get up and stand in front of everyone.” So he got up and stood there. Luke 6:9 Then Jesus said to them, “I ask you, which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it?” Luke 6:10 He looked around at them all, and then said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so, and his hand was completely restored. Jesus commanded the man to put his faith into action, and when the man stretched out his hand it was healed. This principle is just as true today. Matthew 12:15 Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. Many followed him, and he healed all their sick Jesus healed all the sick. It is His will to heal the sick. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Matthew 12:22 Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. Matthew 12:23 All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” Luke 11:14 Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon left, the man who had been mute spoke, and the crowd was amazed. Again, casting out a demon is sometimes all it takes to get someone healed, both then and now. Matthew 13:57 And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honor.” Matthew 13:58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. Mark 6:4 Jesus said to them, “Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor.” Mark 6:5 He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. Mark 6:6 And he was amazed at their lack of faith. When you step out in obedience to Christ and begin laying hands on the sick, people (often other Christians) will be offended, so expect it. Notice that Jesus could not do many miracles in His hometown because of their lack of faith. Faith is just as important today.
