The miracles of Jesus are bitter sweet: Intriguing, but hard to believe. We hope for them, yet find them hard to believe in. We see them in everything even as we explain them away. For centuries we’ve wrestled with them, sometimes reducing them to parables, and other times defending them as history. Perhaps they’re both . . . and more! Maybe the miracles are signs of a deeper reality. Maybe they’re tiny windows that allow us to peer into the heavens, if only for a moment, to see the “mystery of godliness,” (1 Tim. 3:16). Maybe they show us Jesus’ power over nature, over evil, over disease, even death . . . in other words, over all things that overwhelm us. Maybe in miracles we get a glimpse into the power and the scope of the gospel, into what God intends for this world and for us. After all, “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work,” (1 John 3:8). This series is a collection of miracles around that theme.
