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.
