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.
Simon J. Kistemaker is professor emeritus at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando and the author of numerous studies and commentaries, including The Parables and several volumes of the New Testament Commentary series.
