"Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." Jesus

Healings in the Scriptures
In the Bible we read, "Jesus went about in all Galilee teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of disease and all manner of sickness among the people. And the report of him went forth into all Syria: and they brought unto him all that were sick, holden with divers diseases and torments, possessed with devils, and epileptic, and palsied; and he healed them." (Matthew 4: 23, 24, Revised Version)

Commenting on these verses, Judge Septimus J. Hanna, writes: "This is the first biblical account of Jesus’ healing the sick. It is not the first biblical account, however, of the healing of the sick without the aid of drugs or medicine. There are many instances of the healing of disease in the Old Testament without the use of material remedies. ("Healing Through Christian Science," p. 1)

For nearly three hundred years, the healing power taught by Jesus was practised and demonstrated by his followers. But that element of Christianity was lost. How was divine healing to be restored? Mary Baker Eddy tells us: "Our Master healed the sick, practised Christian healing, and taught the generalities of its divine Principle to his students; but he left no definite rule for demonstrating this Principle of healing and preventing disease. This rule remained to be discovered in Christian Science." ("Science and Health," p. 147)
