Cases Where Faith or Believing is Mentioned as the Cause of Healing:

1). The centurion’s servant (or “boy”): Matt. 8:5-13; Luke 7:2-10 “Let it be done to you as you have believed.”

2). The paralytic lowered through the roof: Matt. 9:2-8; Mark 2:3-11; Luke 5:18-26 “Seeing their faith….He said…’go home.'”

3). Jairus’ daughter: Matt. 9:18-26; Mark 5:22-43; Luke 8:41-56 “‘Do not be afraid—only believe’….And He gave them strict orders that no one should know about this.”

4). The woman with the issue of blood: Matt. 9:20-22; Mark 5:25-34; Luke 8:43-48 “Your faith has made you well.”

5). Two blind men: Matt. 9:27-31 “Be it done to you according to your faith….See here, let no one know about this!”

6). Blind Bartimaeus: Mark 10:46-52; Luke 18:35-43 “Your faith has made you well.”

7). The ten lepers: Luke 17:12-19 “Your faith has made you well.”

8). The Nobleman’s son: John 4:46-53 “The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him.”

In the next four cases, the faith of the sick person is not specifically mentioned, but it is implied by his words or actions. For example, the two blind men (in number 10 below) cried out to Jesus as He was passing by just as blind Bartimaeus did. All of the sick persons in the next four examples sought out Jesus, a clear indication of their faith. In three of the next four cases, Jesus told the ones He healed not to tell anyone about what had happened to them, indicating further that these cases were not “gifts of healings.”

9). The leper who didn’t know God’s will: Matt. 8:2-4; Mark 1:40-45; Luke 5:12-14 “See that you say nothing to anyone.”

10). Two blind men (probably one was Bartimaeus): Matt. 20:30-34 “[They] cried out, saying, ‘Lord, have mercy on us!'”

11). The deaf and dumb man: Mark 7:32-36 “And he gave them orders not to tell anyone.”

12). A blind man: Mark 8:22-26 “Do not even enter the village.”

These final two cases of people who were healed through faith were actually not healed—they were delivered from demons. But Jesus credited their faith for effecting their deliverance.

13). The lunatic boy: Matt. 17:14-18; Mark 9:17-27; Luke 9:38-42 “And Jesus said to him…’All things are possible to him who believes.’ Immediately the boy’s father cried out…’I do believe; help my unbelief.'”

14). The Syrophoenician woman’s daughter: Matt. 15:22-28; Mark 7:25-30 “O woman, your faith is great; be it done for you as you wish.”
