Healing -- Lenten Video

An exerpt from Called into Healing by Linda L. Smith:

Healing and the Gospels

One fifth of the content of the Gospels is about Jesus' healing ministry. There are 41 distinct instances of physical and mental healings recorded in the four Gospels. Some of these are retold in several Gospels, so there are 72 accounts in all. Some of the accounts are about healing large numbers of people at one time; others describe individual healing or healing at a distance. Jesus taught his disciples to heal and empowered them to go out and carry out his ministry. Even from a brief look at the Scriptures, it is obvious that Jesus expected his disciples to continue his work (Smith, p. 32).

What are the most memorable stories in Scripture of healing for you? Why?
