Healing Encounters with Jesus

Healing Encounters with JesusNew NCF Bible studies!

People who encountered Jesus were never the same again. With compassion and dignity, Jesus brought health and wholeness to the sick and suffering. His power to heal demonstrated his divine identity and intended mission.

How do we encounter Jesus today? Invite your friends, classmates or coworkers to discuss these New Testament stories using the questions designed for those in the nursing profession. Learn how to do a nursing assessment on characters from the Bible and how to apply Scripture to nursing by putting faith into practice.

Check out the first four stories in this new Bible studies series.

  • A Touch of Love: Jesus is not timid about touching someone with a repulsive illness in this story from Luke 5:12-13.
  • Paralyzed No More: Often a person’s physical needs are obvious, but how do we as nurses learn to identify spiritual or non-physical needs? See how Jesus intervenes to treat a quadriplegic in this story from Luke 5:18-26.
  • An Embarrassing Problem: How does Jesus handle a woman’s chronic health issue in public? See how she approaches Jesus and talks with him about a very personal concern in Mark 5:25-34.
  • Just Say the Word: An influential man who is outside of the faith community comes to Jesus with a critical request. See how Jesus responds to this unlikely person in Luke 7:1-10.

Watch for more Bible studies coming soon!

    What a timely release. The upcoming European Regional Conference which tackles the topic The Christian Heritage of Wholistic nursing: A vision for the future is where I am humbled to present Return, Rest and Restore. Our ANA said Nurse: Leading the Way in 2014
    Jesus who is the Way completely modeled this care for us in these healing examples. We can do greater things now because he is alive in us through the resurrection power of his Holy Spirit. If we simply serve under his yoke it will be easy and light. “Come to me all ye who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”
    Blessings to all my fellow laborers!
