Performing Miracles

“It is one thing for a man to teach what he claims is truth; it is quite another thing to demonstrate one’s authority to claim that truth.  That is why the miracles which Jesus performs are such a vital part of his ministry. 

The miracles are a means of confirming the message that the kingdom  of God is now being established with power!  God is establishing his rule through Christ, and proving it with the miraculous power which Jesus exercises over the forces of nature, over the spirit world, and over death and disease.”

Read:  Matthew 8:18-34, Luke 9:57-62, Mark 4:35-41, Luke 8:22-56, Mark 5, Matthew 9:18-34, Matthew 13:53-58, Mark 6:1-6

Teaching Through Parables

“Jesus continues to teach his disciples quietly concerning the kingdom of God.  As the Great Teacher, Jesus uses numerous methods of instructing his disciples.  Of all his methods, however, perhaps the most interesting and distinctive mode of teaching is his use of parables.  These illustrations of a moral truth or principle are usually in the form of a simple comparison.  As often =as not, Jesus’ parables are comparisons with things either found in nature or known through human experience.

Although Jesus says the parables will have the effect of concealing truth, he must have in mind those hearers whose hearts are closed to his teaching.  Most of the lessons are fairly simple to understand and especially well-suited for the common man, to whom Jesus directs his teaching.”
