In classical mythology, Asclepius was the son of Apollo and the god of medicine and
healing. The temple of Asclepius was the place where the sick would go in hopes of
being healed. The sick would bring their offerings to the temple, and the temple
physicians would attempt to heal or alleviate the suffering of the suppliant. It
is obvious from the scriptures that Yeshua considered such temple physicians to be
no better than robbers and thieves (Yeshua 26:11-32).
