Christ healing the Crippled woman, Trees Sarcophagus, Louvre, Paris, 3rd 4th cent.

And just then there appeared a woman with a spirit that had crippled her for eighteen years. She was bent over and was quite unable to stand up straight. When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, "Woman, you are set free from your ailment." When he laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began praising God[NRSV, Luke 13:11-13].
