Jesus, Our Model for Caring for the Whole Person

GMM – Chapter 2

HHP – Lesson 2

the names of jesus
The names of Jesus
  • Yeshuwah – to save, heal, restore, make whole
  • Sotera – Savior, healer, restorer
  • Salvation includes healing
  • Healing includes salvation
  • Both are on-going processes with a beginning and a final completion in eternity
the jesus model of healing
THE JESUS’ MODEL OF HEALING
  • He healed the whole person
  • Body, mind, soul, and spirit
  • He made the sick person whole
  • He was competent in physical, social, psychological and spiritual care
  • None of us are, but the Body of Christ can be
  • Thus we need a team approach
the woman with bleeding mark 5 25 34
The woman with bleeding – Mark 5 : 25 - 34
  • Write out together all of the physical symptoms, social issues, psychological and spiritual problems of this woman
  • How did Jesus heal her in all these areas of her life?
her physical problems
HER PHYSICAL PROBLEMS
  • 12 years of bleeding
  • Anemia due to blood loss
  • Weakness
  • Probably pain with the bleeding
  • Infertility
her social problems
HER SOCIAL PROBLEMS
  • She was Jewish and subject to Jewish laws
  • Bleeding causes uncleanness (Leviticus 15:19–30)
  • She had been unclean for twelve years
  • Divorced
  • Abandoned by her family
  • No friends
  • No money
her psycho spiritual problems
HER PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL PROBLEMS
  • Grief
  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Sense of rejection
  • Despair – cut off from God
  • No hope
she went to jesus by herself
SHE WENT TO JESUS BY HERSELF
  • This was socially unacceptable
  • It was morally wrong
    • She made Jesus unclean
    • She stole his power
  • According to Jewish culture, she should have been condemned and probably stoned
  • Jesus did not follow Jewish culture
why did jesus expose her
WHY DID JESUS EXPOSE HER?
  • He knew she had been physically healed
  • We doctors are happy when we have physically healed someone
  • Why was Jesus not satisfied?
  • Because the woman herself had not yet been healed
how did jesus heal her
HOW DID JESUS HEAL HER?
  • He used physical power
  • He listened to her story
  • He discerned her real problems
  • He spoke a healing word
  • He affirmed her as a person
  • He healed her as a whole person
  • We can do the same!

HEALING
  • We have many interventions for healing the body
  • What heals the mind, soul, and spirit of sick people?
  • A WORD
isaiah 6 10
ISAIAH 6 : 10
  • This people’s heart has become calloused
  • They hardly hear with their ears, and
  • They have closed their eyes.
  • Otherwise, they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears,
  • Understand with their hearts, and
  • Turn to me and be HEALED.
the healing word
THE HEALING WORD
  • Is spoken to the heart
  • Is understood by the heart
  • Resolves the anguish and pain of the heart
  • Jesus knew how to speak such words
  • Do we?
great distance between head and heart
Great distance between head and heart
  • Head – cognitive knowledge
  • Heart – feelings, emotions
  • Much of head knowledge is not understood or accepted by the heart
  • Psychology speaks to the mind. That can help
  • Jesus speaks to the heart. That heals.
words that heal
WORDS THAT HEAL
  • A single word
  • An explanation
  • A story or parable
  • A passage from the Bible
  • A word spoken in prayer
  • A personal word from the Holy Spirit
  • A visual symbol, picture, or scene
what does the jesus model require of us
What does the Jesus’ model require of us?
  • A lot of time. We doctors and nurses do not have that time
  • Trained people. We have not been trained for this
  • Discernment, learned by training, prayer, and experience
  • An understanding of wholeness by all of the staff
  • It needs to be ‘evidence based’ and ‘patient directed’ - It can be
the solution
THE SOLUTION
  • A team approach
  • Medical staff plus pastoral care staff
  • How do you see this working where you are?

ANALYSIS
