Tag: Miracles of Jesus
Jesus Christ performed many miracles, demonstrating his power over nature and spirits, and thus confirming that the Kingdom of God is at hand (Mark 1:15). “Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). Through the above miracle, Jesus recruited his first four Apostles - Peter, his brother Andrew, and James and John.
Jesus the Christ also performed moral miracles in the New Testament. In a moral miracle, such as forgiveness of sins or driving out demons, the blessing of Jesus purifies the soul.
The miracle stories are an integral part of the Gospel narrative, as in the Gospel of Mark, where nearly half of Mark's account of the public ministry of Jesus (Chapters 1-10) describes miracles. The ministry of Jesus is centered on the establishment of God's imminent Kingdom, which ended the dominion of the evil one over the world, present ever since sin and death entered mankind. The miracles were Jesus' chief weapon in the struggle with evil (Mark 3:22-27), the most direct being the exorcism of demons, which defeated the power of evil and liberated humanity.
These are the records recounting Jesus Christ's Miracles. Starting with the 'First Miracle' with His name, His birth through the Virgin Mary.

Over Easter, I posted this to Facebook:
Today is humanity’s annual reminder that the case fatality rate for life is 100%. By all and any various means, each of us will die, and no mitigation measure or scientific breakthrough will allow any of us to escape this result. There is, however, a whisper of a ‘cure,’ a rumor, if you will, of a Doctor who licked Death, and now offers his own antibodies to those who seek Him. This is your annual reminder that many who seek claim they have found and now feel they have Good reason to Hope. … continue reading...
