Title: Jesus as physician role-model

Jesus as physician role-model
  • Since you are God's dear children, you must try
    to be like him. Your life must be controlled by
    love, just as Christ loved us and gave his life
    for us... (Ephesians 51-2)
  • And now I give you a new commandment love one
    another. As I have loved you, so you must love
    one another. (John 1334-35)

  • your life must be controlled by love
  • love one another

Problem Irritability and Frustration
  • Neurology scheduler
  • Dr. Cole, Im so sorry, I accidently double
    booked you for the entire day. We just found out
    about this and havent had a chance to call any
    of your patients. Your first 4 patients are
    already in the waiting room. What would you like
    me to do?

Jesus Feeds Five Thousand
  • There were so many people coming and going that
    Jesus and his disciples didn't even have time to
    eat. So he said to them, Let us go off by
    ourselves to some place where we will be alone
    and you can rest a while. So they started out in
    a boat by themselves to a lonely place. Many
    people, however, saw them leave and knew at once
    who they were so they went from all the towns
    and ran ahead by land and arrived at the place
    ahead of Jesus and his disciples. When Jesus got
    out of the boat, he saw this large crowd, and his
    heart was filled with pity for them, because they
    were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began
    to teach them many things. (Mark 631-34)

  • When it was getting late, his disciples came to
    him and said, It is already very late, and this
    is a lonely place. Send the people away, and let
    them go to the nearby farms and villages in order
    to buy themselves something to eat. You
    yourselves give them something to eat, Jesus
  • They asked, Do you want us to go and spend two
    hundred silver coins on bread in order to feed
    them? (Mark 632-37)

Jesus Feeds Four Thousand
  • Not long afterward another large crowd came
    together. When the people had nothing left to
    eat, Jesus called the disciples to him and said,
    I feel sorry for these people, because they have
    been with me for three days and now have nothing
    to eat. If I send them home without feeding them,
    they will faint as they go, because some of them
    have come a long way. His disciples said
  • Where in this desert can anyone find enough food
    to feed all these people?
  • How much bread do you have? Jesus asked.
  • Seven loaves, they answered.
  • He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground.
    Then he took the seven loaves, gave thanks to
    God, broke them, and gave them to his disciples
    to distribute to the crowd and the disciples did
    so. (Mark 81-6)

  • Irritability? Harsh words?
  • Jesus gave his disciples an opportunity to
    exercise their faith, even though they failed
  • In a positive way, involved his disciples in the

Problem Irritability and Frustration
  • Patient Uncontrolled 3-4 seizures/month
  • Me (after one hour visit) Please take Keppra
    twice a day. If you do, we have a good chance of
    controlling these seizures. Call me in 2-3 weeks
    to let me know how you are doing. Come back to
    see me in 2 months. Reported to DMV
  • Patient No phone call in 2-3 weeks. No show
    for follow up visit. Was contacted by the
    neurology secretary and given another
    appointment. Was a no show for the next 3

Problem Irritability and Frustration
  • Patient presented to the ED with a seizure and
    admitted that he only took about 5-10 pills of
  • Me saw patient in the ED. Informed that if he
    would take his medication that we may be able to
    stop the seizures.
  • Patient no show for follow up appointment
  • Patient presented 2 weeks later to the ED after
    another seizure. Patient left before he could be
    seen by neurology
  • Me at follow up visit, patient still found to be
    non-compliant. Lengthy counseling. Patient still
    driving. Sent another letter to the DMV.

Problem Irritability and Frustration
  • Patient writes letter of complaint to the
    hospital medical director
  • Dr. Cole has been completely unable to help me
    with my seizures and now he has ruined my life by
    taking away my drivers license.

Jesus speaks of his death
  • From that time on Jesus began to say plainly to
    his disciples, I must go to Jerusalem and suffer
    much from the elders, the chief priests, and the
    teachers of the Law. I will be put to death, but
    three days later I will be raised to life.
    (Matthew 1621)

2nd time
  • When the disciples all came together in Galilee,
    Jesus said to them, The Son of Man is about to
    be handed over to those who will kill him but
    three days later he will be raised to life. The
    disciples became very sad. (Matthew 1722-23

3rd time
  • As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the
    twelve disciples aside and spoke to them
    privately, as they walked along. Listen, he
    told them, we are going up to Jerusalem, where
    the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief
    priests and the teachers of the Law. They will
    condemn him to death and then hand him over to
    the Gentiles, who will make fun of him, whip him,
    and crucify him but three days later he will be
    raised to life. (Matthew 2017-19)

  • Simon, Simon! Listen! Satan has received
    permission to test all of you, to separate the
    good from the bad, as a farmer separates the
    wheat from the chaff. (Luke 2231)

  • They came to a place called Gethsemane, and
    Jesus said to his disciples, Sit here while I
    pray. He took Peter, James, and John with him.
    Distress and anguish came over him, and he said
    to them, The sorrow in my heart is so great that
    it almost crushes me. Stay here and keep watch.
    He went a little farther on, threw himself on the
    ground, and prayed that, if possible, he might
    not have to go through that time of suffering.
    Father, he prayed, my Father! All things are
    possible for you. Take this cup of suffering away
    from me. Yet not what I want, but what you want.
    Then he returned and found the three disciples

  • He said to Peter, Simon, are you asleep? Weren't
    you able to stay awake for even one hour? And he
    said to them, Keep watch, and pray that you will
    not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing,
    but the flesh is weak. He went away once more
    and prayed, saying the same words. Then he came
    back to the disciples and found them asleep they
    could not keep their eyes open. And they did not
    know what to say to him. When he came back the
    third time, he said to them, Are you still
    sleeping and resting? Look! The hour has come for
    the Son of Man to be handed over to the power of
    sinners. (Mark 1432-41)

  • Woman, I dont even know him (Luke 2257)
  • Man, I am not! (Luke 2258)
  • Man, I dont know what you are talking about!
    (Luke 2260)
  • At once, while he was still speaking, a rooster
    crowed. The Lord Turned around and looked
    straight at Peter (Luke 2260,61)

  • Now go and tell His disciples, including Peter,
    that Jesus is going ahead of you to Galilee. You
    will see Him there, just as He told you before He
    died. (Mark 167)

  • After Jesus rose from death early on Sunday, he
    appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he
    had driven out seven demons. She went and told
    his companions. They were mourning and crying
    and when they heard her say that Jesus was alive
    and that she had seen him, they did not believe
    her. After this, Jesus appeared in a different
    manner to two of them while they were on their
    way to the country. They returned and told the
    others, but these would not believe it. (Mark

  • It was late that Sunday evening, and the
    disciples were gathered together behind locked
    doors, because they were afraid of the Jewish
    authorities. Then Jesus came and stood among
  • Peace be with you, he said. After saying this,
    he showed them his hands and his side. The
    disciples were filled with joy at seeing the
    Lord. Jesus said to them again, Peace be with
    you. As the Father sent me, so I send you. One
    of the twelve disciples, Thomas (called the
    Twin), was not with them when Jesus came.

  • So the other disciples told him, We have seen
    the Lord! Thomas said to them, Unless I see the
    scars of the nails in his hands and put my finger
    on those scars and my hand in his side, I will
    not believe. A week later the disciples were
    together again indoors, and Thomas was with them.
    The doors were locked, but Jesus came and stood
    among them and said,
  • Peace be with you. Then he said to Thomas, Put
    your finger here, and look at my hands then
    reach out your hand and put it in my side. Stop
    your doubting, and believe! Thomas answered him,
    My Lord and my God! (John 2019-28)

  • Human tendency irritability, short temper,
    easily frustrated, tit-for-tat
  • What God is like Patient, forgiving, returning
    love in the face of unbelief and lack of trust

Meeting patients needs
  • The teachers of the law and the Pharisees
    brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made
    her stand before the group and said to Jesus,
    Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of
    adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone
    such women. Now what do you say? They were using
    this question as a trap, in order to have a basis
    for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started
    to write on the ground with his finger. (John

  • As they stood there asking him questions, he
    straightened up and said to them, "Whichever one
    of you has committed no sin may throw the first
    stone at her." Then he bent over again and wrote
    on the ground. When they heard this, they all
    left, one by one, the older ones first. Jesus was
    left alone, with the woman still standing there.
    He straightened up and said to her, "Where are
    they? Is there no one left to condemn you?" "No
    one, sir," she answered. "Well, then," Jesus
    said, "I do not condemn you either. Go, but do
    not sin again. (John 87-11)

  • Goal Persuade that the attitude of God in this
    story applies to your patient
  • David
  • Solomon
  • Manasseh
  • Peter
  • Judas
  • Thief on the cross
  • The mob the crucified Jesus

  • As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered
    into him. Jesus said to him, Hurry and do what
    you must! None of the others at the table
    understood why Jesus said this to him. Since
    Judas was in charge of the money bag, some of the
    disciples thought that Jesus had told him to go
    and buy what they needed for the festival, or to
    give something to the poor. (John 1327-29)

Arrogance Pride
  • What a dumb consult.
  • Surgeon misses a diagnosis When all you have is
    a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
  • About neurologists diagnose and adios
  • Patient I have a hard time accepting that what
    you say is true.
  • Doctor Look, I went to a school a long time.
    Youre just going to have to trust me.

  • If one of you wants to be great, you must be the
    servant of the rest and if one of you wants to
    be first, you must be the slave of the others---
    like the Son of Man, who did not come to be
    served, but to serve and to give his life to
    redeem many people. (Matthew 2026-28)
  • I am meek and humble of heart. (Matthew 1129)

  • They came to Capernaum, and after going indoors
    Jesus asked his disciples, "What were you arguing
    about on the road?" But they would not answer
    him, because on the road they had been arguing
    among themselves about who was the greatest.
    (Mark 933-34)
  • Jesus knew what they were thinking, so he took a
    child, stood him by his side, and said to them,
    "Whoever welcomes this child in my name, welcomes
    me and whoever welcomes me, also welcomes the
    one who sent me. For the one who is least among
    you all is the greatest. (Luke 946-48)

  • Jesus said to them, The kings of the pagans
    have power over their people, and the rulers
    claim the title 'Friends of the People.' But this
    is not the way it is with you rather, the
    greatest one among you must be like the youngest,
    and the leader must be like the servant. (Luke

  • Jesus knew that the Father had given him
    complete power he knew that he had come from God
    and was going to God. So.
  • he rose from the table, took off his outer
    garment, and tied a towel around his waist. Then
    he poured some water into a washbasin and began
    to wash the disciples' feet and dry them with the
    towel around his waist. (John 133-5)

  • After Jesus had washed their feet, he put his
    outer garment back on and returned to his place
    at the table. Do you understand what I have just
    done to you? he asked. You call me Teacher and
    Lord, and it is right that you do so, because
    that is what I am. I, your Lord and Teacher, have
    just washed your feet. You, then, should wash one
    another's feet. I have set an example for you, so
    that you will do just what I have done for you. I
    am telling you the truth no slaves are greater
    than their master, and no messengers are greater
    than the one who sent them. Now that you know
    this truth, how happy you will be if you put it
    into practice! (John 1312-17)

A time for anger?
  • Jesus went into the Temple and drove out all
    those who were buying and selling there. He
    overturned the tables of the moneychangers and
    the stools of those who sold pigeons, and said to
    them, "It is written in the Scriptures that God
    said, 'My Temple will be called a house of
    prayer.' But you are making it a hideout for
  • The blind and the crippled came to him in the
    Temple, and he healed them. The chief priests and
    the teachers of the Law became angry when they
    saw the wonderful things he was doing and the
    children shouting in the Temple, Praise to
    David's Son! (Matthew 2112-15)

  • My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord
    and Savior as a fighter. Jesus was greatest not
    as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love
    as a Christian and as a man I read through the
    passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose
    in His might and seized the scourge to drive out
    of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders.

The problem
  • the enemy of good blinded the minds of men, so
    that they looked upon God with fear they thought
    of Him as severe and unforgiving. Satan led men
    to conceive of God as a being whose chief
    attribute is stern justice,--one who is a severe
    judge, a harsh, exacting creditor. He pictured
    the Creator as a being who is watching with
    jealous eye to discern the errors and mistakes of
    men, that He may visit judgments upon them.

Jesus mission
  • It was to remove this dark shadow, by revealing
    to the world the infinite love of God, that Jesus
    came to live among men. The Son of God came from
    heaven to make manifest the Father. "No man hath
    seen God at any time the only begotten Son,
    which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath
    declared Him." John 118...When one of the
    disciples made the request, "Show us the Father,"
    Jesus answered, "Have I been so long time with
    you, and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip? He
    that hath seen Me hath seen the Father and how
    sayest thou then, Show us the Father?" John 148,

  • In describing His earthly mission, Jesus said,
    The Lord "hath anointed Me to preach the gospel
    to the poor He hath sent Me to heal the
    brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the
    captives, and recovering of sight to the blind,
    to set at liberty them that are bruised." Luke
    418. This was His work. He went about doing good
    and healing all that were oppressed by Satan.
    There were whole villages where there was not a
    moan of sickness in any house, for He had passed
    through them and healed all their sick. His work
    gave evidence of His divine anointing. Love,
    mercy, and compassion were revealed in every act
    of His life His heart went out in tender
    sympathy to the children of men. He took man's
    nature, that He might reach man's wants. The
    poorest and humblest were not afraid to approach
    Him. Even little children were attracted to Him.
    They loved to climb upon His knees and gaze into
    the pensive face, benignant with love.

  • Jesus did not suppress one word of truth, but He
    uttered it always in love. He exercised the
    greatest tact and thoughtful, kind attention in
    His intercourse with the people. He was never
    rude, never needlessly spoke a severe word, never
    gave needless pain to a sensitive soul. He did
    not censure human weakness. He spoke the truth,
    but always in love. He denounced hypocrisy,
    unbelief, and iniquity but tears were in His
    voice as He uttered His scathing rebukes. He wept
    over Jerusalem, the city He loved, which refused
    to receive Him, the way, the truth, and the life.
    They had rejected Him, the Saviour, but He
    regarded them with pitying tenderness. His life
    was one of self-denial and thoughtful care for
    others. Every soul was precious in His eyes.
    While He ever bore Himself with divine dignity,
    He bowed with the tenderest regard to every
    member of the family of God. In all men He saw
    fallen souls whom it was His mission to save.

  • Such is the character of Christ as revealed in
    His life. This is the character of God. It is
    from the Fathers heart that the streams of
    divine compassion, manifest in Christ, flow out
    to the children of men. Jesus, the tender,
    pitying Saviour, was God "manifest in the flesh."
    1 Timothy 316. (Steps to Christ pg. 11-13)

Role of the physician
  • To go about doing good and healing all that are
    oppressed by Satans kingdom
  • To reveal that Gods chief attribute is not stern
    justice, that God is not a severe judge, a harsh,
    exacting creditor. To reveal that God is not
    watching with a jealous eye to discern the errors
    and mistakes of men, that He may visit judgments
    upon them.

    the attention of your patient
  • To live a life of self-denial and thoughtful care
    for others.
