There are 23 specific stories of Jesus healing people, plus at least 9 sections include an account of mass healings and Jesus’ fame for healing countless people, and another 13 miracles of Jesus. Of the 23 instances of healing, 7 occurred on the Sabbath, and of those he was condemned for his actions only four times.1
These three tables are designed to help you jump to each passage in the Harmony of the Gospels so that you can study each healing and miracle in harmony, context, and chronological order. Click on the title provided in column 1 to read each account in the Harmony of the Gospels, or mouse over the individual passage to read the text of just one Gospeler.2
In these 9 instances we read records of when Jesus healed more than one or two people – so many that they are counted in mass as multitudes, many, and everyone. And if all these accounts of Jesus’ power, mercy, and goodness weren’t enough to impress you John concludes his Gospel account saying that Jesus’ miracles are to numerous to record (John 20:30, 21:25).
