-Today a physical illness is more readily identified than a spiritual one
-Attempting to treat spiritual illness as a physical illness
-Jesus healed with his word

Matthew 8:14-17


New King James Version (NKJV)

Peter’s Mother-in-Law Healed


14 Now when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. 15 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them.[a]

Many Healed in the Evening


16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:

He Himself took our infirmities
And bore our sicknesses.”[b]
