    The boy had just "miracuously" learned to walk again. What happened after that though?

    Thanks!

    I haven't watched the film in a few years, so my memories might be slightly off, but this is the gist of it:

    Jonas believes Boyd out-conned him, he doesn't want to believe it's a genuine miracle. He angrily confronts the weeping statue of Jesus, essentially for making him face his demons.

    Boyd asks Jonas to take him on the road with him, and with renewed cynicism, Jonas agrees.

    But... He has a change of heart in the end and leaves town without telling Boyd, hitching a ride with a random trucker. Just as they're leaving town, it starts to rain. He praises Jesus, laughing. And that's how it ends, with the promise of a new beginning for everyone.

    I don't remember if Jane stays with the sheriff, though.
