dc.description.abstractJesus is often referred to as the Great Physician, and the Gospel of Luke presents a distinct picture of the healing miracles of Jesus Christ. This thesis will analyze the various contexts of magic, medicine, and miracle in which Jesus healed and taught. It will examine the interpretations and roles of magic, medicine, and miracle in a Greco-Roman, a Jewish, and a Christian context and further evaluate how it deepens the understanding of Jesus’ healing miracles. This thesis will look specifically at the miracles of the epileptic boy, the bleeding woman, and the ten lepers within the Gospel of Luke and analyze these miracles within the spheres of magic, medicine, and miracle. The final chapter will then discuss the implications of Jesus’ healing miracles for modern-Christian physicians and their healing and practices.en_US
