The four kinds or healing Jesus performed were physical healing, spiritualhealing, resurrection, and moral healing. Physical healing was when Jesus healedpeople who suffered from physical illnesses. Examples of this kind of healingare blindness, uncontrollable bleeding, and leprosy. These kinds of healingswere called miracles, exceptions to the normal course of ordinary events. Jesusmade a special effort to reach out to lepers, people often neglected and scornedin his society.
Through physical healings, Jesus demonstrated enormous powerover nature and illness. The second kind of healing, spiritual healing was whenJesus healed people who had mental illness. These people are described to havean unclean spirit.
One of the most known spiritual healing is the healingof the man from Gerasa. There was a naked man that was very strong and attackedpeople without cause. He may have been possessed or psychotic, no one reallyknows, but they do know that Jesus healed this man. Resurrection was when Jesusbrought people who had died back to life. Moral healing was when Jesus healedpeoples character.
What are two reasons why the historical approach is valuable?There are two reasons why the historical approach of Jesus is valuable. Firstof all historical evidence shows us Jesus valued all people equally, rather theyneither rich nor poor. Jesus didnt look at the person on the outside he looksat each persons heart with compassion and offered healing and goodness toall. Secondly it emphasizes that Jesus was valued was fully human, subject tothe demands, temptations, and frustrations we all feel.
There is a debate overmany theories concerning historical Jesus between scholars but ultimately; ourfaith is Jesus does not rest on historical evidence.What does living in the kingdom mean?Living in the kingdom means living a life centered on love of God and love ofothers. The kingdom is a spiritual, interior quality of life in relation to Godthat is available now, here, in this life on earth. In this kingdom, peopleexperience God as their common ruler, and treat others as fellow subjects oftheir heavenly king. The living Kingdom is the second dimension of the Kingdom.
The living kingdom of God only occurs in an individual who recognizes God as areal king and experiences him or herself as a child in that kingdom. The easiestway to live in the kingdom is just by following the greatest two commandments;love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. Therefore,living in the kingdom means loving God and serving others in loving ways.Why does our faith not rest on the historical approach?Our faith doesn’t rest on the historical Jesus because our faith is based onevents that cannot be proven. History doesn’t tell that Jesus rose from the deadand ascended into heaven.
However, the historical account shows that Jesus wastruly human, subject to the demands, temptations and frustrations we all feel.This only proves that Jesus was human and without the Jesus of Faith theCatholic Church would not exist. But as Catholic Christians, our faith includesthe testimony of Church tradition, that is that Jesus is the Lord of humanity,the Son of God, who existed from the beginning of time, became human, died forour sins and rose again. These points cannot be proved historically.
They areverified in the experience of Christians who open their hearts to Jesus’ healingpresence.-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
