Now when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. 15 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them.
16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“He Himself took our infirmities
And bore our sicknesses.” ~ Matthew 8:14-17.
“our sicknesses” (v.17). — Isaiah 53:4 uses “griefs” to represent the sin for which they are the curse (Isaiah 53:5). Jesus came to bear the curse as well as the guilt of sin, and in His ministry He demonstrated His power over physical suffering. Yet He has not promised to remove sickness from the world or the church before the Second Coming (8:20–23; 1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 21:4).
