New Defender's Study Bible Notes
8:17 Esaias the prophet. See Isaiah 53:4. Note that this prophecy of Isaiah was fulfilled, according to this passage, before the atonement of Christ on the cross. Therefore, bodily healing is not in the atonement. Like all aspects of our salvation, however, our bodies are delivered from the power of sickness, pain and death in this present life, and from their very presence in the future resurrection life.
