Concerns about healing and peace remain central in human experience. They arise in many spheres of life: military, political, economic, medical, religious, spiritual, and domestic. Ancient writings from Greece and Rome, the Israelite-Jewish and Christian scriptures, extracanonical documents, and patristic texts are replete with instances where words and concepts for healing and peace occur together. After examining such occurrences, Father Ridgway undertakes an exegesis of the mission charge in Matthew 10:1-15 in order to define the precise meaning of "peace" (eirene) there and to demonstrate a relationship between the commissions to heal (therapeuein) the sick and to confer eirene on worthy houses. Father Ridgway concludes by discussing implications of his findings for peoples of antiquity and the modern world, both Christian and non-Christian.


The Author: John K. Ridgway, S.J. is Assistant Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Regis University in Denver, Colorado. He received his M.Div. and S.T.M. from the Jesuit Schools of Theology in Chicago and Berkeley, and a Ph.D. in New Testament from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Father Ridgway has published articles on the Gospel of Matthew and St. Paul's Letter to the Romans.

quot;...John Ridgway's study of peace and healing in Matthew 10:1-15 paves the way for us, both as professional scholars and laity, to pursue new and enlightening directions in the exploration of this text. While this is a scholarly study with all of the necessary technical language and methodologies, I am equally struck by the importance that it will have for the larger engagement with issues of peace, health, and well-being in our world."
