Abstract

The ancient Hebrew principle of Pikuach Nephesh, "He who saves a life saves the world entire," took precedence in the healing ministry of Jesus. Today, when Christian nurses persist in serving others, striving to achieve compassion and professional excellence, they too uphold the law of "preserving life."

In Brief
