Blank Grids for Students

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

  • What is healing?
  • What kinds of people needed healing in the Bible?

Create a grid for each Gospel and list the healings under each book.

EXAMPLE: The Gospel of Mark

New Testament Healing
Healing of... Who requested the healing? What did the healer say or do? How did everyone respond? What stood out to you?
Leprosy A Leper Be thou clean Don't tell anyone He told everyone and Jesus became popular The fact that "moved with compassion" means anger in different translations.


After you've created a grid (see a Chronological grid of new testament healing), add your own examples. Then discuss the following questions in regard to each healing.

  • Did Jesus require anything of the people he healed?
  • What unusual thing did he do to the leper? (he touched him)
  • Why was that unusual? (people wouldn’t touch lepers because they would be made unclean)
  • What did he say to the man who was sick of the palsy?
