Summary:  Asclepius was considered a god of medicine in ancient Greek theology. After Yeshua’s miraculous healing of Arius (Y:26:1-11), many renowned physicians went from the house of Asclepius in Caesarea to inquire of Yeshua regarding his methods. The group of physicians included: Hippolytus of Samos (the foremost physician in Caesarea), Polybius of Salinus, Ptolemy from Alexandria, and Basilides and Leondidas, who were both from Brundisium, Italy (Y:26:12-13).

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Asclepius

 

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).
