Most Christians know the stories of Jesus healing people and controlling nature, but many are less sure why Jesus did these things or how they relate to their lives today. Theologian, professor, and author Simon J. Kistemaker carefully examines each of Jesus's miracles. He lays out the cultural background, explains symbolism and Old Testament connections, and fleshes out the details of each story. Each chapter also includes a section focused on how the miracle relates to the life of the modern follower of Jesus. Kistemaker's scholarly attention to detail coupled with accessible explanations and application will make this book valuable to everyone from lay readers to pastors looking for sermon material.

From the Back Cover:

Rediscover the mystery. We've heard the stories about Jesus calming the storm, feeding the five thousand, and healing the blind. But they can seem so far removed from our experience of following Jesus today. What would it have been like to witness these events firsthand? Simon Kistemaker helps you take a closer look at the miracles of Jesus to better understand the purpose behind each one. By carefully laying out cultural background, symbolism, and Old Testament connections, Kistemaker shows you how these miracles relate to the way you follow Jesus. The result is a detailed exploration that will deepen your understanding of Jesus's miraculous works. "I love the clear, simple, yet profoundly insightful way Simon Kistemaker explores the miracles of Jesus. This is a rich and rewarding study of all the major signs and wonders recorded in the Gospels. These events illuminate our understanding of the earthly life and work of the Savior--and reveal his true glory--in a unique and powerful way."--John MacArthur, author; president, Grace to You "What a wonderful book! I've been reading The Miracles devotionally and it has fed my soul and my mind. If you've never studied the miracles of Jesus, been overwhelmed by their power, and rejoiced in what Jesus does for his own, this is the place to start. Read it! You'll be so glad you did."--Steve Brown, author; president, Key Life radio program; professor, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida Simon J. Kistemaker is professor emeritus at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida, and the author of numerous commentaries and studies, including The Parables and The Conversations of Jesus.
