Eight Examples of Jesus’s Healing Ministry From The Gospel of Matthew

The Gospel of Matthew records many examples of Jesus’s Healing Ministry.  These healing scriptures illustrate his care and concern for the common everyday person.  He was never too busy to stop and give of himself.  All that was required was the “courage to ask” and the “faith to believe”.

If you have an illness or sickness, you can use the following bible scriptures to encourage yourself as you seek God’s best for your personal deliverance.  Or maybe you are praying for someone else’s healing, either a loved one, associate, or just a casual acquaintance.  Just remember that Jesus’s healing power is still available today.


  1.  Matthew 8:2-3
    “And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.  And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”

  3. Matthew 8:5-10,13
    “And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.  And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.  When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.   And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.”

  5. Matthew 8:14-17
    ” And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.  And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”

  7. Matthew 9:35
    “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.”

  9. Matthew 10:1,7-8
    “And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.  And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give”

  11. Matthew 15:22-28
    “And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.  But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.  But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and cast it to dogs.  And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”

  13. Matthew 15:29-31
    “And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.  And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel”

  15. Matthew 18:18-20
    “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”


We hope that as you read these scriptures that you were blessed.  Maybe you have a similar situation to one of the people in these verses.

    Thanks for leaving so an encouraging comment. I really appreciate hearing that our work has benefited others. I am glad you have been blessed by the scriptures. I am also certain that God will send a messenger to minister to your church. Just be a diligent seeker as it says in Hebrews 11:6 and he will reward your efforts.

    It seems you and your group are doing a great work. Remember Galatians 6:9 which says ” And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap , if we faint not.” Just don’t stop or give up. Due season will arrive!

    Also remember that God is a faithful God and you can be encouraged by reading Hebrews 6:10 ” For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”

    We will pray for you and your group. God Bless!

    1st thing you notice in the healing verses is that all the people sought after Jesus, then you see that all the people asked in a worshipping manner. Next, they spoke in belief that they or the person needing the healing could or would be healed. Finally, you see the people accepted the healing knowing that it would change their lives forever. I had always had problems with “declaring the healing when it looked impossible since I am a nurse; however, God allowed me to read a book that explained double mindedness and then allowed me to discern that what we speak is the real belief of what is in our hearts and minds. Now speaking healing that has NOT occurred yet is part of my life. I will be more aware of what I speak so that I glorify God for his healings BEFORE it is evident. Praise God for discernment and I pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who daily face the challenges of their physical, spiritual and emotional beings while working in their missions.

    God is all powerful and I claim healing in the name of our Lord. By HIS stripes we are healed! It is done.

  18. Jack on January 5th, 2014 8:40 pm

    When I read the texts I had a revelation. My worry was to do with ‘faith’. If I have strong enough faith to allow Jesus to perform His healing. I then realised that the faith being spoken about in the texts is not about believing it may or may not happen, but rather simply believing that Jesus has the power to heal. Based on that simply faith of accepting that Jesus is all powerful to heal through the anointing power…great things can and will happen.

    I say this because I don’t want people to feel bad if healing prayers are not answered. Don’t think that it’s because your faith was not strong enough, it’s because Jesus has a plan and we may not always understand His will…but have faith that the right outcome will be!

    My prayer is that Jesus’ grace will oversee my weaknesses and faults and constant sinning, and allow for His divine healing hand to touch my unborn son and make him whole in the womb. I have faith and I believe that Jesus is all powerful and can do it in an instant. By faith and in the name of Jesus I beg for his forgiveness and healing mercies.

    God bless.
