Miracles of Jesus: Healing a woman with an 18-year disability

(Luke 13:10-13)

As explained in the Gospel of Luke, Jesus, while teaching at a synagogue, miraculously heals a woman who had been unable to stand upright for 18 years:

On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity." Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.

-Luke 13:10-13, NIV translation.
