He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. — John xiv. 12. – 11
It has been said that the New Testament does not authorize us to expect the ministry of healing at this period.
We ask what is the authority for such a conclusion, the premises whereof are not to be found in the Scriptures. The Master’s divine logic, as seen in our text, contradicts this inference, — these are his words: “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also.” That perfect syllogism of Jesus has but one correct premise and conclusion, and it cannot fall to the ground beneath the stroke of unskilled swordsmen. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.195:13-22)
