About the Course
This on-demand course is for anyone curious about the if, why, and how God heals in the world today. Recent decades have seen a renewed openness to healing in the church, and God’s Word certainly demonstrates that is central to the past, present, and future ministry of the ascended Jesus. But few teachers and practitioners have invested the time in developing a biblical theology of healing. This course by Stephen Seamands puts forward an approach that explores the heart of the matter—why God heals, the nature of healing, and a host of matters related to the mystery of pain and suffering in our fallen world.
Those who take this course will be particularly struck by the balanced perspective, which integrates what the Bible teaches in a way that challenges us to believe all that God has for us while acknowledging that healing has more dimensions than is commonly acknowledged. Participants will be challenged to wrestle through the relationship healing has to the image of God, the Kingdom of God, and other rich theological themes that emerge from Scripture.
For an enriched experienced, we encourage the purchase of the book as well as supplemental materials such as the Journal and Church Kit for deep community alignment. See below.
