Keith Warrington claims that Jesus’ healings should not be taken as a model to be followed today and that the reason for the apostles’ powerful healing ministry was the presence and activity of Jesus, thus leaving the Church to a new healing paradigm found in James 5, which, he asserts, explains the decrease in healing today. Yet it would appear that the Apostles do indeed follow Jesus’ model of healing, and the evidence in Acts appears to militate against Warrington’s thesis. One has to ask if healing in James is so ‘markedly different’ from Jesus’ ministry. There is not a third class or third string team after Jesus, then the Apostles. Jesus and the Holy Spirit are still the agents of healing today as they were then.
