On April 20, 1923, F.F. Bosworth preached "31 Questions," an important message on divine healing, at Alliance Tabernacle, Toronto, Canada. The message became a chapter in his book, Christ the Healer.

The message was said to be part of his sermon, "Is There a Gospel of Healing?" It was viewed as his response to a critic of his healing ministry.

"31 Questions" is an example of Bosworth's ministry as a teacher and apologist of divine healing. His primary argument is that divine healing is available in the atonement of Christ. He contends that salvation includes healing for the soul and body. He argues in clear terms that healing for the body is a part of Christ's redeeming work. He supports his position using scripture and themes from both the Old Testament and New Testament.

Bosworth begins his message with a question about one of the redemptive names of God in the Old Testament. He writes:

1. Since the seven compound names of Jehovah, one of which Jehovah-Rapha (I am the Lord that health thee) reveal His redemptive relationship toward each person, do they not point to Calvary?


In question 31, the final point of the message, Bosworth quotes Kenneth Mackenzie. He writes:

"Could the loving heart of the Son of God, Who had compassion upon the sick, and healed all who had need of healing, cease to regard the sufferings of His own when He had become exalted at the right hand of the Father?"
