We declare that the Medical Community has come to realize that God is the center of healing. Thus, the first Priest and religious leaders were also healers. We declare that our Faith and undying Love of God is crucial toward healing.
Peace be unto you,

THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY & HEALING
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
Part 93: The Physician &
the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth
As we approach the topic concerning
the medical community and healing we will identify a person who best interprets these findings. As
a matter of logic and reasoning one would assume that there
are three persons in the flesh involved in this healing process. Thus, the
patient, doctor, Preacher or religious person.
However there is another person that
is involved that can interpret, affirm, predict and guide this process. This person is the Spiritual
Scientist. He could be a medical doctor, and he could be a Preacher
he also could be the patient. For the record the Spiritual Scientist does not
take the place of the Doctor or the Preacher.
In recent years the medical community
has embraced many things related to God and religion in reference to healing.
However healing practices have a long and often complex history in Old and New
Testament times. But the physician as a healer began in
Therefore by way on introduction and
as a preface to this section of our discussion we will reflect on those who set the precedents for the art
of medicine and healing.
Dr. Frederick Newsome in an article
entitled "Black Contributions to the Early History of Western Medicine," contributes to our
discussion. (This article was originally printed in the Journal of the National
Medical Association, Vol. 71, No. 2, 1979, p. 189-193. However, it was
reprinted in the Journal of African Civilization, Sept, 1980, Edited by
Ivan Van Sertima).
The Egyptians made countless
contributions to medicine. Thus, the Egyptians are acknowledged as the
inventors of the art of healing. Hence the first physicians were Egyptians.
They also produced the initial medical knowledge and of course the first medical
literature. Ancient writers, also conclude that the Egyptians influenced the
development of medicine in ancient

However, who was the first Physician?
Was he indeed Hippocrates? Hippocrates was Greek and Egyptians influenced and laid the foundation
for Greek medicine and Greek Physicians. Thus, is it true that Hippocrates was
the first physician?

first king of
Meanwhile, other sources report that the multi-genius Imhotep was the first physician in history. In the Egyptian hieroglyphs Imhotep means "to come in peace." He lived about 2980 BC, during the reign of Pharaoh Zoser of the Third Dynasty.
"Over the centuries, Egyptians
in need of healing flocked to shrines and temples created in his honor. By 525 BC, he had become a full

The importance of Imhotep is generally recognized by the medical community and medical historians; however the Egyptian distinction is often excluded. The following sources confirm the importance of Imhotep:
