Lent Day 25

BOOK III - The Words of Healing Dialogue

Note: the image above is a painting of the scene in which sayings 8 and 9 unfold. It was done by my good friend Elizabeth Melton Bartley.

6 The casting out of an objectively operative demon
7 A direct absolution certified by a concomitant healing miracle
8 The flow of power by proximity and without intention
9 A resuscitation
10 Belief and faith as a measure of efficacy

Reflect: In Saying 6, why do you think Jesus asked the demon his name? In Sayings 8-10, what does the role of faith and believing seem to be in healing encounters with Jesus?
