I think I've about had my personal fill of religious claims. I'm going
to pull out of this discussion and hope that we soon turn to grammar
and textual issues.

I do not know how adding metaphor to metaphor helps us understand the text. Jesus did not "bear" sickness of any kind, even if he (supposedly) healed any sickness. There is a difference between bearing a sickness, which means that you suffer through it, and healing a sickness. Doctors do not "bear" the sickness of their patients.
