Whilst reading the bible, it came to mind as to why not study the Miracles of Jesus, the circumstances in which He performed them, the surroundings at that time, the people of that time etc. Thinking in those lines, I thought it would be a good start to study the Miracles of Jesus. After praying I embarked on that journey and have started to pen down (put it into a blog). Now here are my thoughts, words and inspiration that I’m penning.

Even before studying the miracle, I started to try to categorise the Miracles of Jesus and below is what I could come up with.

During the life time of Jesus, He performed many miracles. If one were to classify the miracles into some sort of category, it could be broken into 2 broad categories of Healing and Non-Healing miracles.

  • Healing Miracles: The healing miracles could be further broadly categorised as
    • Healing of the Blind 4 times
    • Healing of the paralytic 3 times
    • Healing of lepers 2 times
    • Healing of high fever 2 times
    • Unique Healings 6 times
    • Ultimate Healing 3 times
  • Non Healing Miracles: If one were to further categorise this, it would be
    • Power of nature and circumstances 10 miracles
    • Power of Demons 6 times

Would it not be interesting to delve into each of these and reflect on each miracle and what it means to each one of us. That’s exactly what I’m going to do in the coming months and would all readers to revisit to see the progress I make. I’m going to put it all into this blog. I began by embarking on a journey of studying each miracle and now want to articulate by experience and how each miracle spoke to me. What touched me, what made me repent, the joy of discovery of each one of them. Even as I continue writing these blogs, I would want to invite of you on a similar journey of experience the miracles first hand, not as a mere story but let the Word of God breathe life into your life. Come back for more.

Just a word of caution though, as in all Bible study reading the same verse or paragraph may evoke a different response to another person especially as the Holy Spirit reveals. Your response to the same text may be different, that is why St. Augustine whilst speaking of scriptures says:

“The Bible is shallow enough for a child not to drown, yet deep enough for an elephant to swim.”

On similar lines, St. Jerome states:

“The Scriptures are shallow enough for a babe to come and drink without fear of drowning and deep enough for a theologians to swim in without ever touching the bottom.”

So see you all next week.
