Even though it is a well-known axiom that the Davidic Messiah was expected neither to do miracles nor to be a healer, Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew is addressed with the messianic title "Son of David" almost exclusively within the context of his healing activity. Lidja Novakovik tries to uncover the rationale of this extraordinary connection and claims that it can be found in Matthew's own skillful biblical interpretation. Contents include: Introduction, Jesus and Davidic Messianism, Healing the Sick as a Messianic Activity, Scriptural Basis of Jesus' Messianic Healings, A Summary of Conclusions.
