Bible Term: Great Physician

Interestingly, the phrase “Great Physician” is not found in the Bible.

However, Jesus referred to himself as a healer and a physician, caring for people and curing them of their diseases and illnesses. Because of his immense healing ministry he is often called the “Great Physician”and this is a commonly accepted descriptive name for him.

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
