    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.
