    The Gospel of Luke, and healing

    The Gospel of Luke is called the Gospel of man and rightly so. Luke was a physician, and his pallet is one that is rich in the color of healing, friendship, and mercy. This Gospel paints a picture of Christ the healer, focusing on the ministry of women, and man being a friend to God, whereas in the other synoptic Gospels Christ is painted with a rich array of other colors, to form an exquisite picture that only begins to reveal the beauty of our Lord.

    The Bible wheel greatly emphasizes the colors of each Gospels pallet by displaying them in a way where the meaning is highlighted with the Hebrew letter that governs the Spoke on which the book lies. The book of Luke is a good example of this. It's placement on Spoke 20, headed by the letter “Resh”, gives great emphasis to its theme of health, having as one of its KeyWords “Rapha” which means healing.

    In many places in the Gospel of Luke he either inserts the word healing, or emphasizes the word healing by using both Greek forms, whereas the other Synoptics replace or minimize its usage. Here are a few examples…..I will be presenting more as time goes on.



    Luke 8:2 And certain women, which had been healed (therapeuo) of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

    Mark 16:9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils

    Luke 8:43-47 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed ( therapeuo) of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed ( iaomai) immediately.
    Matt. 9:20-22 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
    Mark 5:25-34 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed ( iaomai) of that plague. And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

    Luke 22:50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed ( iaomai) him.

    Matt. 26:51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.

    Mark 14:47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

    Here's another beautiful example of the Gospel of Luke's unique pallet, in a thread titled: At the feet of Jesus.

    Luke the physician

    Here is another example of physician Luke’s pallet, emphasizing “healing” by using two different Greek words. The Greek word therapeia, is what our word for “therapy” comes from, and the Greek word iaomai, is a verb meaning to heal, or make whole as in salvation. In Luke’s account of the “Feeding of the five thousand with five loaves and two fishes” he uses both words for healing, thus coloring his pallet with the focus on health, and healing.



    Luke 9:10-14 And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida. And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed (iaomai) them that had need of healing (therapeia). And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people. For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, make them sit down by fifties in a company.
    Matt.14:13- When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities. And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed (therapeuo) their sick. And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes
    Mark 6:31 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him. And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things. And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed: Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat. He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? He saith unto them,How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.

    Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?

    Once again! In keeping with the theme of Luke the physician, we have displayed in the synoptic Gospels, Luke mentioning the word healing while the others do not.

    Luke 14:1-5 And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him. And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy. And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal (therapeuo) on the sabbath day? And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed (iaomai) him, and let him go; And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?
    Matt.12:9-13 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue: And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal (therapeuo) on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
    Mark 3:1-5 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand And they watched him, whether he would heal (therapeuo) him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

    Teaching the doctors

    Synoptic parallels


    Once again the Gospel of Luke displays his focus on healing that is absent from the other synoptic passages of the same event. Below I've presented the story of the man who Jesus heals of the Palsy....only in Luke do we see the insertion of his teaching to the doctors of the Law, and his presence to heal them.

    Matt.8:5-7
    And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

    Mark 2:1-5 And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house. And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

    Luke 5: 16-20 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him. And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus. And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.
