For years, Joni Eareckson Tada has served as a strong advocate for those with disabilities. She and her team have produced a great academic article that underscores God’s view of those with disabilities.
“In the Old Testament, God creates humanity without disability, makes gracious provision for disability in the law, and promises hope for people with disabilities in the prophets. In the New Testament, Jesus offers hope and a way for people with disabilities, which reveals God’s heart for people affected by disabilities and provides a model for the church. Myths about people affected by disabilities are disproven, and reasons for ministry to, with, and among people affected by disabilities are given.”
