Are the healing miracles of Jesus just awesome demonstrations of divine power? Or were they, in fact, also politically subversive, socially challenging and religiously reforming acts too? In this lecture,
Martyn Percy looks at modern healing movements in the churches, and compares them to the gospel healing accounts. How do they measure up? How and why are healing ministries today different from those practiced in the past?
