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.”

The Ministry Continues

“Such perceptive and authoritative teaching has obviously won the attention of the multitudes, who have long been disillusioned by the empty ritualism and superficiality of their present religious system.  As Jesus’ fame continues to spread, John the Baptist sends a message to Jesus asking for final confirmation of his messiahship.   Jesus sends a message of reassurance and praises John for his courage and dedication as a servant of God.

No doubt by this time the religious leaders are also becoming increasingly aware of Jesus[‘ extraordinary power.  Instead of accepting it as divine, they accuse Jesus of having power from Satan.”

Beginning of the Great Galilean Ministry

“Rejected by those closest to him in Nazareth, Jesus takes his ministry elsewhere.  Surprisingly, though, it is not to Jerusalem and surrounding Judea that Jesus goes.  Contrary to the expectation of the Jews, Jesus takes his ministry primarily to Galilee.  It is here that Jesus gains popularity among the people and begins to see the crowds swell.  Matthew begins his account of the Galilean ministry by observing that this phase of Jesus’ ministry is a fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy.”
