Film: The Green Mile

Tom Hanks – Paul Edgecomb; Michael Duncan – John Coffey

Coffey had the ability to reach inside and remove one's sickness. Hanks had a kidney infection/stone. Coffee reached out and touched him and was able to literally take on that sickness and remove it from Hanks.

The warden's wife had a tumor in the brain and was terminal – she was very close to death. Hanks and his Guards took Coffey to the Warden's house where upon Coffee proceeded to touch the warden's wife and remove the tumor from her placing it within himself.

EXACTLY what CHRIST DID FOR US. He reached down and touched us -- the SICKNESS OF OUR SINS UPON HIMSELF.
