TENJO COGOLLO, Manuel. Support for Patients with Difficult-to-cure Diseases Provided from Luke 23:39-43. Theol. Xave. [online]. 2018, vol.68, n.186, pp.193-215. ISSN 0120-3649.

From the analysis of Luke 23:39-43—where we can observe three ways of dealing with suffering and death—and the dialogue with some authors of bioethics, we present these research that points to the reflection on suffering and death, to help those who carry out a comprehensive monitoring to people who live with difficult-to-cure or terminal diseases. The biblical contribution is combined with the bioethics to generate reflections of support and growth in the midst of extreme situations, aimed to make productive, with a redemptive meaning, the suffering, and the death.

Keywords : Meaning of suffering; Mourning; Death; Bioethics; Difficult cure; Luke 23:39-43.
