Title: The Obligation to Heal (Luke 13,10-17)
Author(s): KILGALLEN, John J.
Volume: 82 Issue: 3 Date: 2001
Luke 13,10-17 is often considered to be a parallel to Luke 14,1-6; further, Luke 13,10-17 is often separated, in the structuring of Luke’s Gospel, from Luke 13,1-9. In this essay, there is noted the crucial difference between the key words δεῖ (13,14.16) and ἔξεστιν (14,3) for the interpretations (and differences) between these two Sabbath cures. Also this essay notes the inherent unity of the cure of the bent woman with the call to repentance that precedes it.
