THE IMMEDIACY OF JESUS' HEALING

"As soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed" (Mark 1:42).

In this account of Jesus' healing of a leper who came to him begging to be made whole, the word "immediately" is used to describe the instantaneous healing the man experienced. A study of the records of healings brought about by Jesus will show that the word "immediately" is often used. Some of the more familiar examples include the healing of Simon Peter's wife's mother (Mark 1:31); the healing of the impotent man by the pool of Bethesda (John 5:9); and the healing of the woman with the issue of blood (Luke 8:44) .
