Full Product Description

INSIGHTS FROM MEDICAL AND MEDITERRANEAN ANTHROPOLOGY

How are we to read and understand stories of Jesus healing the lame, deaf, blind, and those with a variety of other maladies? Pilch takes us beyond the historical and literary questions to examine the social questions of how the earliest followers of Jesus and ancient Judeans understood healing, what roles healers played, and the different emphases on healing among the gospels.
