Jesus did not advertise His healing

Matthew Bible Background

New Testament: Mark 5.43

To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 5.21–43 on February 24, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

Jesus could heal any human with any physical ailment, and He did often heal people, but He did not want it known:

But He commanded them strictly that no one should know it, and said that something should be given her to eat.

– Mark 5.43

Contrast that with modern so-called healers who advertise their services!


  • Why would Jesus not want people to tell others about His healing power?
  • Why did Jesus tell the people to feed the girl rather than doing it Himself?
