They continue growing when a frantic hospital administrator pleads with him to take the young man home because of what he has been doing in the hospital, namely wandering around the corridors in crutches, healing dozens of patients, including some given up as terminal by their doctors.He then begins a series of incredible adventures, some with strong biblical parallels, wondering all the while whether this young man is a con-man or a lunatic quack or, if he is the resurrected Christ, living as a mortal man in these modern days.
