Jesus' Aim

Jesus' work and miracles seem to be geared not simply towards making people healthy or physically whole, but instead to put them in a right understanding (and consequent practice) and relationship towards God. He didn't set up a hospital to heal everyone in Palestine, but was at least somewhat selective, and even apparently reluctant to heal some people. If His goal was first for people to acknowledge their real relationship to God, and to live in the light of Who God really is, then if someone could do that without being physically healed, He apparently might leave such a person in that redeemed, but physically broken, state.
