Miracles in Christianity
Christianity is the largest religion in the world with about 2.38 billion followers. It is based on the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
Some people believe that the Christian faith is limited to certain kinds of believers, but the Bible makes clear that God is not limited in this way. He can perform new and wonderful things that have not been done before.
The New Testament is full of miracles. These can be healings, prophecy, discerning of spirits and more. But the Scriptures also make it clear that these are not special gifts. Christians are called to heal the sick and cast out demons.
Many people claim to have miraculous abilities, but those who actually possess these gifts do not use chicanery or other shady methods. They pray and have faith, and God does what he wants.
In the Bible, the apostles were given power to raise the dead, to cast out demons and to heal the sick. However, they did not perform miracles like walking on water. Instead, they used their powers to point to themselves as messengers of God.
During the early Christian era, the Church was scattered from Jerusalem. After Christi’s resurrection, apostles travelled and preached the gospel, and healed the sick. Eventually, these apostles established the early church.
There are three accounts of miracles in the Gospels. Matthew, Mark and Luke all have their own historical and theological context.
Jesus healed diseases and did miracles in the presence of his disciples. He commanded his disciples to lay hands on the sick and heal them.
