The pastor’s handling of trauma analogous to Jesus’ healings and exorcisms, studied from a crosscultural
perspective, can be understood as acts of relocation or cope-healings. Special attention
is given to the way in which Jesus healed, the results of his healings and how those who where
healed and witnessed Jesus’ healings reacted. It is argued that the way in which Jesus healed can
be used by pastors as paradigm to heal those who experience trauma.
