Miracles in Christianity

Christianity is a religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. It is a monotheistic, Abrahamic religion that is practiced by 2.38 billion people worldwide.

Christians have always understood that God is at work in the world to help those in need. In addition to establishing the world right, Christians have also understood that it is part of their mission to alleviate suffering.

As a result, miracles are very common in the Bible. They may vary in nature and location, but are generally a result of the power of the Holy Spirit. Often, healings take place in private homes.

Some people are healed in public, such as at a hospital or a storefront healing room. These places are operated by Catholics and Protestants side by side, not charging fees.

One of the most common ways that Christians in the Global South came to faith was through the miracle of healing. The Gospels brim with stories of miraculous healing.

Healings in the Gospels are usually linked to the proclamation of the Christian gospel. There are also a variety of miraculous claims made by those outside of the ministry of Jesus. Those claims have been given a variety of meanings.

Historically, the anointing of the sick was considered a sacrament. After Constantine converted in 312 and Christianized the Empire, the practice of healing began to fall on the margins. Church leaders limited the use of the anointing and only gave it to those in danger of death.
