Universal physicians

In the synagogue in Nazareth, Christ Jesus once referenced this compelling statement: “Physician, heal thyself” (Luke 4:23). What did he mean? It seems the scribes and Pharisees (doctors of the Jewish law) in the synagogue had little understanding of what he meant, or didn’t want to know, because his healing work confounded them. But was he speaking only to those there that day, or to his disciples and to us—for all time?

Jesus showed that we all have the capacity and capability to heal and be healed, to understand what true health is. In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy states that a fundamental part of the revelation of Christian Science is: “The proof, by present demonstration, that the so-called miracles of Jesus did not specially belong to a dispensation now ended, but that they illustrated an ever-operative divine Principle” (p. 123).
