The Miracles in the Gospels: What Do They Teach Us About Jesus?

Product Description

Keith Warrington's book paints a compelling picture of Jesus as miracle worker. It shows how miracles functioned as a strategy in his ministry, and explains why some miracles are recorded differently in different Gospels.

In this magisterial study, Keith Warrington paints a rounded picture of Jesus as a miracle worker by exploring each of the miracles in the Gospels in their literary and historical setting. He demonstrates that, while the miracles are historically authentic, there are several reasons for their presence in the Gospels other than simply to identify Jesus as a miracle worker. They are also intended to function as vehicles of teaching: expressing aspects of the mission and person of Jesus, providing lessons for his would-be disciples and adding theological value for each Gospel's original audience.

Endorsements

Keith Warrington combines the best in biblical exegesis with his own Pentecostal experience. In this book he not only sees miracles in the ministry of Jesus as acts of power, but he explores their primary purpose in what they teach us about Jesus. It is meticulously referenced, and the reader will find this a treasure of both scholarship and inspiration.
-Allan H. Anderson,
Professor of Mission and Pentecostal Studies, University of Birmingham

Readers of this book are able to explore the identity and mission of Jesus through the clear lens of the miracle stories. Warrington does not question whether or not the miracles happened but shows what the stories meant for the Gospel writers, and reveals that the miracle stories are not peripheral to the gospel; they are the gospel.
-Graham H. Twelftree,
Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, Regent University

Systematic and insightful, academic and inspiring, these studies on all the miracles of the Gospels will speak to a wide range of people, from young Christians to preachers and seasoned scholars. Keith Warrington has given us a rich and interesting book that I can thoroughly recommend.
-William K. Kay,
Professor of Theology, Glyndwr University
