Abstract

This study advances a fresh approach to the doctrine that physical healing is provided in the atonement of Jesus—a belief common among Pentecostals around the world, but often supported by a small number of proof-texts (esp. Mt. 8.16-17 and 2 Pet. 2.24). Specifically, the study explores the ways in which the Fourth Gospel affirms the connection between healing and salvation and suggests additional ways to reflect upon this issue, thereby making a small contribution to the revisioning of this doctrine. This study includes the following components. First, it offers a reading of the accounts of healing found within the Fourth Gospel in order to ascertain the level of explicit connection between healing and salvation within these stories. Second, it explores the significance of the narrative location of the signs of healing and their relationship to explicit textual referents to Jesus’ exaltation upon the cross. Third, it offers a couple of observations on other portions of the Fourth Gospel that might be of some relevance to this topic. Fourth, it explores this topic further by listening to readings (‘testimonies’) from early Pentecostalism that see some connection between healing in the atonement and the Fourth Gospel. Finally, this study attempts to make explicit the modest implications of this discussion for a Pentecostal theology of healing in the atonement.
