This word is used to describe the perfection of the person as regards his physical condition. Those who were made whole were restored to their original condition of health and strength, with all damage removed, and all marks or evidences of disease taken away. The body was restored to normal. Those who were healed by our Lord JESUS were completely healed. Not only was the disease stopped, but the effects of the disease were removed. We do not see that type of divine healing exhibited today. When the maimed were made whole, the part of the body that had been lost was restored. They came to CHRIST with one leg, and went away with two. They came with one eye, and went away with two. They came with one arm, and went away with two. The Lord is not doing this today. Note the following Scriptures: Matthew 9:12; Matthew 15:31; Luke 6:10; Luke 7:10; John 5:14; Acts 9:34).

Luke 5:31 (b) There are those who think that they are so good, righteous and holy that they do not need the Saviour. These are the ones who are called "whole." Not until one realizes his sinful condition and his need of the power of GOD will he come to JESUS CHRIST for salvation, admitting that he is helpless and hopeless.

John 5:6 (c) Probably this is a type of the condition of Israel for the thirty-eight years during which they wandered in the wilderness. They too were helpless and hopeless. They needed GOD to work a miracle for them, and deliver them from their predicament. This man is a splendid picture of that great event.
