VAN ECK, Ernest. The pastors' handling of trauma analogous to Jesus' healings and exorcisms. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.31, n.1, pp.1-8. ISSN 2074-7705.

The pastor's handling of trauma analogous to Jesus' healings and exorcisms, studied from a cross-cultural perspective, can be understood as acts of relocation or cope-healings. Special attention is given to the way in which Jesus healed, the results of his healings and how those who where healed and witnessed Jesus' healings reacted. It is argued that the way in which Jesus healed can be used by pastors as paradigm to heal those who experience trauma.

Keywords : genesig; historiese Jesus; biomediese paradigma; relokasie; trauma.
