Healing: miracle, or result of correct view?

A man lame from birth begged daily at the temple in Jerusalem. Two men came to pray, and the lame beggar asked for alms. But the men, Peter and John, had far more to give the beggar than just a few coins. Having recently witnessed the resurrection and ascension of their great Teacher, Christ Jesus, they were filled with spiritual inspiration and the power of God.

Peter replied to the beggar, "Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." Acts 3:6. And the Bible records that as Peter took him by the hand the lame man rose up, his feet and ankle bones made strong.
