Jesus Christ: The Importance of his Miracles
Throughout history many people have given messages. They were trying to make people consider the messages. They would say that they would do something with out actually backing it up, or they would say they are someone with out proof. Jesus had made many messages that said that he was “the messiah”, the son of god. The performance of miracles had strengthened Jesus’ message. Because Jesus had done miracles to back up his message, people actually believed he was the messiah, Son of God. Many people believe Jesus actually performed miracles but some people believe he did not.
In the book by Washington F. Jarvis (p 65) it defines miracle as “an occurrence which we cannot explain in terms of our present knowledge and understanding of how things work in the world around us.” Many people believe that Jesus did perform the miracles but few still believe they were phony. In the book by Washington F. Jarvis (p 65) it states that “many dispute this portrait of Jesus; many deny the possibility of miracles and find the gospel miracle stories embarrassing fairy tales.” There were people who were not too confident that Jesus actually performed the miracles.
Many people also thought that Jesus was a troublemaker, if in fact he was the messiah, the son of god. In the book by Washington F. Jarvis (p 66) it says that “because Jesus broke the law by healing on the Sabbath, and because he attracted many adherents, he came to be regarded by the establishment as a dangerous trouble maker.” Many people thought if he could heal people he should know when to do it or when not to do it. They believed that he could perform miracles but that he was a trouble make or that he was working for the devil or something evil.
Many people did think he could heal people. In the book by Washington F. Jarvis (p 65) it says that “but the gospels portray Jesus as a miracle- worker and credit him with the power to heal sickness and to alter the natural order.” Even though people could see that he could heal people, some still wanted to deny that he was a miracle worker.
People knew that he was a miracle worker in the book by Washington F. Jarvis (p 66) it says that “when we read the gospels accounts, what strikes us the most is the fact that no one in Jesus’ time, friend or enemy, ever indicated the slightest doubt that Jesus did miracles.” This quote proves that people saw that Jesus could do miracles.
If people ever did see that he did miracles and that he was the messiah the son of god they knew it was from God. In the book by Washington F. Jarvis (p 66) it say that “both those who rejected Jesus and those who accepted him saw the miracles not as a sign, an indication of who he was and what he was doing.” Some people but not the majority saw that he had some good in him. People thought that god or some heavenly spirit was working threw him. In the book in the book by Washington F. Jarvis (p 66- 67) it say that “except...
