Jesus Christ Is A Renowned Healer
And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. (Matthew 4:24 KJV)
Step back in time for a moment and imagine yourself being wowed by the healing powers of Jesus in this crowd a few thousand years ago.
Not only did Jesus hear and see these great needs about Him, but He healed numerous people of their ills. Many in the region were intimately familiar with His healing powers and sought out His supernatural healing; both physically and spiritually.
Some were tormented inwardly by dark evil spirits and found much-needed relief in Jesus. He was able to remove these evil spirits which were both oppressing them and in some cases dwelling within them. Other people were physically injured or chronically ill and Jesus restored their physical health and well-being.
Word quickly spread across the region about this supernatural healing power. Many sought Him out for their own personal needs, as well as various maladies of family and friends. Countless people desired to know Jesus for what He could do for them.
These crowds were not aware of who Jesus was or about His sacrifice to come on the cross at Calvary.
