The means that God has given for the cure of physical troubles. Medicine often symbolises the application of the gospel of God’s grace in Jesus Christ for the healing of moral and spiritual ills.
A cheerful disposition Pr 17:22
Salt Eze 16:4
Physical exercise 1Ti 4:8
Mud Jn 9:6 The connection between the medium used and the cure is not always clear. For example, the use of mud, spittle, oil and water appears sometimes to be more symbolic than practical.
Spittle Mk 7:33
Eye salve Rev 3:18
Myrrh Mk 15:23
Oil See also Isa 1:6
Medicine cannot cure everything
Application of the gospel as medicine
Resurrection as the ultimate medicine for all ills
