Divine healing is a significant theme in the Bible and throughout Christian history, spanning time periods, theological traditions, and geographical regions. Though a challenge to some traditions, most Christians in most parts of the world through the ages have had a robustly supernatural faith that God can and does work miracles, including miracles of healing. Stories about such healings number far more than can be counted—even when eliminating the obviously fraudulent, the obviously confused, and the difficult to prove. Indeed, prayer for healing has played a major role in world evangelization, bringing many Christians globally to view healing as a central element of the gospel. In this special double issue of Christian History, read these well-attested stories of God’s divine healing from the Scriptures up to the modern day.
