Miracle Healing in Early Christianity

You may not know what a Christian is, but if you’ve ever tried to convince someone that they should join your church, you’ll know that Christianity has some very basic beliefs. Its founder, Jesus, was a man who called people to himself, and a group of apostles was appointed to carry out his mission. These apostles were known to be limited, and so were the miracles they performed. During the early centuries of Christianity, Jesus’ missionary work was largely limited.

The Bible emphasizes the need for baptism. Peter taught the crowds on the Day of Pentecost how to be saved: repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit comes after this. Later, in Acts, Paul was led to Christ by Ananias, who exhorted him to be baptized. Paul was baptized and called on Christ’s name.

Christians today discern true and false prophets through their inward testimony. Prophecy is often referred to as a “word from God” that is given to a specific person. In Acts 11:28-29, the prophet Agabus predicted a famine. This was a warning from God to prepare the early Christians for the famine. Acts 21:10-11 describes the death of Paul.

In this passage, Jesus said that the Spirit led him to free those who were oppressed. His “anointing” with the Spirit enabled him to bring the message of freedom to the oppressed and poor. In this way, Jesus inaugurated the eschatological Jubilee. By his miracles, Jesus was able to free people from oppression and proclaim good news to the poor. The Spirit, meanwhile, was the guiding force behind his ministry.
