1 Corinthians 12:9

Faith (pisti). Not faith of surrender, saving faith, but wonder-working faith like that in 1 Corinthians 13:2 ( Matthew 17:20 ; Matthew 21:21 ). Note here en twi autwi pneumati (in the same Spirit) in contrast with dia and kata in verse Matthew 8 . Gifts of healings (carismata iamatwn). Iama, old word from iaomai, common in LXX, in N.T. only in this chapter. It means acts of healing as in Acts 4:30 (cf. James 5:14 ) and Luke 7:21 (of Jesus). Note en here as just before.
