This article seeks to identify distinctively Christian values that the Church might bring to public discussions of health care today. It does this by looking carefully at the Synoptic healing stories, identifying in the process four dominant virtues: compassion, care, faith and humility. It argues that together these virtues form an ideal typology that can be used to complement, deepen and sometimes challenge, but not simply replace, the prevalent values current within much health-care ethics today.
