Is there such a thing as Medicine in the Bible?

Start: Mar 22, 2017 6:00:00 PM

Mark Geller
Was there ever such a thing as ‘medicine’ in the Bible? The identification of biblical ‘leprosy’ (Tzorat) has remained a perpetual problem for scholarship, since the ‘symptoms’ described in the Bible fit no modern patterns of illness, and certainly not leprosy or psoriasis. This lecture will view these passages from the point of view of contemporary medicine which is well documented in cuneiform tablets, to put biblical ‘medicine' into its proper context within ancient healing arts. Comparisons will show many of the descriptions of this condition in the Bible have parallels which cast light on the passages in Leviticus, so that these passages can take their proper place within the history of ancient medicine.
