Many Christians follow Thomas Jefferson’s lead on how to deal with the miracle stories of the gospels from the perspective of a scientific world view: we essentially delete them from our Bible. But the sheer number of them in the gospels shows how important they were for the early Church’s understanding of the person and works of Jesus as the Christ. In this Bible study, Dr. Allen will lead us through an exploration of ways to interpret the stories in which Jesus offers miraculous healing to those who are sick, possessed, or disabled as having significant theological meaning for Christians in our own day and age.
