Summary: Referred to as ‘being foremost above all physicians which were in Caesarea’,
Hippolytus was among a group physicians who — upon hearing of the miraculous healing
of the man Arius — requested that Arius take them to speak to the person responsible
for his newfound health. Upon meeting Yeshua, Hippolytus questioned him hoping to
glean some knowledge of his mysterious healing power. When pressed, Yeshua rebuked
the physicians for their hypocrisy and corruption (Y:26:15-32).
