When God made Adam and Eve in his “image” he gave them a form that was a reflection of the divine. Built into that first human couple was a resemblance in physical form to the spiritual form of God. Their life came from God, their human personality, the laws of their existence, the nature of their minds, were all based on the divine pattern.
Why did Christ devote so much of his limited time to this one area of human need? With only three years of public ministry before him we might have expected Christ to concentrate solely on teaching the people. Instead, when the time came for him to go to Jerusalem and there to die, his disciples were still quite ignorant of the real purpose of His mission. Let us see why Christ healed the sick.
