Matthew 14:34 - 14:36

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discussion, Steve Gregg delves into Matthew 14:34-36 and how Jesus' miraculous healing of the woman who touched the hem of his garment relates to modern-day beliefs in astrology and faith healing. He argues that the constellations and zodiac signs have been paganized and turned into idols, while physical healing through faith in Jesus is important for the person's belief and not simply a matter of releasing faith for a touch. Gregg also cites the biblical story of Elisha's bones remaining dead and questions whether simply touching an object can result in healing.
