Places of healing

From the November 1979 issue of The Christian Science Journal


What are places of healing? Where are they located? Are they readily available? The New Testament tells us the pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem was believed to be such a place. The narrative describes a man, disabled for many years, who was waiting to be healed by the supposed therapeutic powers of the waters, at what might be known today as a health spa.
