The Apostles followed the example of Jesus and carried out
his teaching. They anointed the sick for healing.
They (the Twelve) drove out many demons, and they
anointed with oil
many who were sick and cured them.
Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the
presbyters of the church, and they should pray over
anoint (him) with oil
in the name of the Lord,
and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and
the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins,
he will be forgiven.
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has
faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?
