Bethany School of Healing

The village of Bethany was a center for caring for the sick.  It was at Bethany that Lazarus was

healed and it is in mercy and compassion that we are sent to heal the broken hearted.

Jesus sent his first disciples out on mission with these words, “Go to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.  And as you go, proclaim that the kingdom of heaven is close at hand.  Cure the sick, raise the dead, and cleanse the  lepers, cast out devils.  You received without charge, give without charge” (Matthew 10: 6-8).
