Looking for Lynn Cohick's 'Women in the New Testament and Early Church'? See here.

There is little question that Jesus was known for his mighty deeds. This course will examine the function and significance of Jesus' miracles within the context of both the Old Testament and popular religious expectations of the first century world.

We will discuss the matter of Jesus' motivation, the varied presentations offered by the four Gospels, and in what ways his mighty deeds speak to the church today. Lectures include:

A. Miracles in the Context of the Ancient World

B. Miracles in the Context of the Ancient World (Cont.)

C. Jesus and His Mission

D. Mighty Deeds, Signs and Works in the Life and Ministry of Jesus; Power over Satan: Jesus' Exorcisms

E. Lord who Heals All your Diseases

F. Cleansing of Israel

G. Messianic Feast and Exodus Provision; Water into Wine and Feedings

H. Yahweh Among Us

I. Announcement of Judgement; Miracle and the Modern World
