Miraculous Power Admitted


What testimony did the chief priests and Pharisees bear concerning Christ’s work?


Then the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the Sanhedrin. “What are we accomplishing”: they asked. “Here is a man performing many miraculous signs.”

John 11:47.  


By what did Peter, on the day of Pentecost, say that God had approved Christ?


“Men of Israel, listen to this Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.” Acts 2:22. 


By what means did Christ claim to cast out devils?


“But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you.” Luke 11:20. Matthew 11:28 says “by the Spirit of God.”


Note – Under the third plague in Egypt – that of turning the dust into lice – the magicians, failing to duplicate it, said to Pharaoh, “this is the finger of God.” (Exodus 8:18,19.)


Upon what ground did Nicodemus rest his belief that Christ was a teacher from God?


He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.” John 3:2.


Opposition Arises


After the healing of the blind man, upon what charge did some of the Pharisees seek to prove that Christ was not of God? 


Some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath.” But others asked, “How can a sinner do such miraculous signs?” So they were divided.  John 9:16.  


Note – This was a false charge. Christ did keep the Sabbath, but not according to the Pharisees’ idea of Sabbath keeping.


What question did others raise in opposition to this view?


But others asked, “How can a sinner do such miraculous signs?” So they were divided.

Verse 16.   


The Faith of Many


What was the result of Christ’s working miracles at His first Passover?


“Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many people saw the miraculous signs he was doing and believed in his name.” John 2:23. 


What question did the performing of these miracles lead many to ask?


Still, many in the crowd put their faith in him. They said, “When the Christ comes, will he do more miraculous signs than this man?” John 7:31.


How many were attracted to Christ?


“And a great crowd of people followed him because they saw the miraculous signs he had performed on the sick.” John 6:2.


Note – A miracle is the display of divine or super human power in some unusual or extraordinary manner; hence its nature to attract attention. Christ fed the five thousand with the multiplied loaves and fishes, and all men wondered. Every day God feeds millions of humanity with the multiplied fruits of the earth, and no one marvels. Christ, by a shortened process, changed water into wine, and everybody was astonished; but every year God does this in the usual way – through the vine – in almost limitless quantities, and no one is astonished. A divine miracle, therefore, whenever performed, is wrought to heal and to save, and to call attention to the Source of divine power.


What did the people say when they saw these things?


People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.” Mark 7:37.


What kinds of disease and sickness did Jesus cure?


“Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.” Matthew 4:23.


Who were brought to Him for healing?


“News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill from various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and he healed them.” Matthew 4:24.


To the woman who had been healed by touching His garment, what did Christ say that made her whole?


Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed from that moment.  Matthew 9:22.   


What did He say to the two blind men as He healed them?


Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith will it be done to you.”

Verse 29.


To another whose sight He had restored, what did Christ say?
