The BIBLE STUDY group will hold its discussion by email this month. Study questions will be emailed. We will continue our focus on Jesus’ healings and will study:

23. Ten men healed of Leprosy:  Luke 17: 11-19

24. Woman healed of adultery: John 8: 1-11

25. Man blind from his birth healed: John 9: 1-7 (the rest of the chapter explores how society reacted)



There is a Book Series that was published by GENERAL PUBLICATIONS   BIBLE PRODUCTS, CSPS    Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. 2002

Jesus’ Healings, Part 1,   Jesus’ Healings, Part 2,   and  Jesus’ Healings, Part 3.

Jesus’   30 recorded healings are retold in these books and arranged in chronological order.   The Bible Study group is following the order given in these books and using them as a reference.
