This is a response to an article written by James Shelton (‘“Not Like It Used to Be?” Jesus, Miracles, and Today’, JPT 14.2 [April 2006], pp. 219-27) apparently in response to an article of mine, ‘Acts and the Healing Narratives: Why’, published in JPT 14.2 (April 2006), pp. 189-217. In it I sought to explore the purposes of Luke in selecting and presenting the healing miracles in the way that he did in the Acts of the Apostles whilst positing lessons for the readers then and now. This rejoinder to Professor Shelton relates to areas of debate concerning healing, only some of which are located in the original article.
