Jesus The Great Physician
Everyone needs a Doctor at some time, even if it is just to sign a death certificate! This book is written with a view of Jesus Christ as not only a Physician but the greatest Physician who ever lived. Thirty-seven miracles are recorded in the Gospels and as Mary Fairchild says: “None were performed randomly, for amusement or for show. Each was accompanied by a message and either met a serious human need or confirmed Christ`s identity and authority as the Son of God”. Having been a Doctor for over forty years, I have viewed the healing miracles of the Lord Jesus in the gospels under medical categories as seen from a modern classification of disease. Not every miracle is therefore included - only those I see in a category of disease or medical specialty. I have added some relevant thought at times relevant to the miracle. The review is limited to the four Gospels although in the first chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, the Physician Luke tells us that in his Gospel he recorded the things that Jesus “began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up” (verses 1-2) to Heaven. He thus infers that Jesus is still doing and teaching through His Apostles in the book of Acts. Two of these are mentioned briefly in the book. The chapters have been arranged in chronological order rather in order of any perceived importance.
