Jesus as Healer : A Gospel for the Body Paperback / softback
In New Testament accounts of Jesus, his healing ministry plays a central role.
In the Western Christian tradition, however, this aspect of his life receives little attention, and Jesus' works of healing are often understood as little more than a demonstration of his divine power. In this book Jan-Olav Henriksen and Karl Olav Sandnes draw on both New Testament scholarship and contemporary systematic theology to challenge and investigate the reasons for this oversight.
They constructively consider what it can mean for Christian theology today to understand Jesus as a healer, to embrace fully the embodied character of the Christian faith, and to recognize the many ways in which God can still be seen to have a healing presence in the world.
