Miracle Healing and Christian Belief


Miracle Healing and Christian Belief

In the New Testament, Jesus says to Peter that the Father in heaven revealed his Messiahship, opening their eyes in his time. In the context of Jesus’ own time, this revelation happened in Matthew 5: the healing of the man with the evil spirit. The gospel writers want us to be aware of demon activity.

Moreover, Christ’s miracles were always performed in his presence. In the book of Acts, Jesus and his apostles performed many signs, but they were not the same as what is done in the New Testament. For example, the apostles did not perform the miracles of feeding the 5,000 or walking on water, but they were only given the power to heal the sick and raise the dead. These miracles were meant to establish them as messengers of God. Because of this, they were supposed to distinguish themselves from false prophets.

Many people have had enough Christianity to be inoculated against the faith. They are also influenced by anti-Christian propaganda in the media. Furthermore, anti-Christian sentiment is also prevalent in intellectual circles. These individuals are much harder to reach than those who have never heard of Jesus. Hence, the Bible provides ample materials to study Christian belief.

Jesus and His apostles established the first church after His resurrection. The apostles preached the gospel, healed people, raised the dead and exorcised demon spirits. These miracles are recorded in the books of Acts and Matthew.
