The popularity of the ministry of Jesus had a lot to do with his many instances of healing. Scattered throughout the gospel of Luke are the stories of Jesus healing. These healings were both physical and spiritual. His healing ministry was in complete harmony with his statement in Luke 5:31-32 - "Jesus answered them, 'It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.'"
- Luke 4:31-5:32
