Jesus Christ, M.D.-The Reason

Concordia Adult Bible Class show

Summary: Why does sickness plague us? Because sin plagues us. When some friends of a paralyzed man bring Him to Jesus, before He heals the man physically, Jesus heals the man spiritually – He forgives this man’s sins. Though we cannot say that it is some specific sin that leads to an illness, disease is a part of and the result of living in a sinful, fallen broken world. Therefore, we all need healing.
