Disability in the Bible

Does the Bible discriminate against disabled people, or are people who live with disability close to God’s heart?

How did Jesus treat disabled people in the Bible, and in light of this, how should we respond as a Christian community to disabled people in church? Through the Roof’s Ros Bayes considers these questions in her article, ‘A Biblical View of Disability’ featured on the bethinking.org website, run by UCCF. You can read the full article at the Bethinking website.
