We would only need scientific explanations for Jesus' miracles if they were attested outside the gospels. Yet, in spite of the number of miracles he performed and the wonder and excitement they would have caused, there is not one contemporary, non-biblical account of even one miracle performed by a holy man in Palestine. It is as if they never happened.
Some of the miracles in the gospels can be explained by looking at the history of the gospels. We now know that the gospels were not written by eyewitnesses or even by anyone who knew an eyewitness. We know that Mark was the first gospel written, around 70 CE, and that the Gospels of Matthew and Luke were substantially based on that of Mark. Finally, it can be shown that the Gospel of John was based on that of Luke, with some minor additions taken direct from Mark.
Since the authors of Matthew, Luke and Johnclearly knew nothing of the life and misssion of Jesus apart from what came, directly or indirectly, from Mark, it would be reasonable to conclude that any miracle reported in the other gospels, but not in Mark, is not historically true. Thus, when John talks of Jesus raising Lazarus, brother of Mary and Martha, from the dead, this can be seen as a conflation and elaboration of the two stories about Mary, Martha and Lazarus in Luke, which gospel has Jesus talk in a parable about the hypothetical resurrection of Lazarus.
So, only the miracles in the Gospel of Mark need to be considered. The miracle of Jesus walking on water is so remarkably similar to the Homeric account of the god Hermes walking on water in similar circumstances that any attempted scientific explanation of one would apply equally to the other. The gospel episode is clumsily structured, clumsily inserted into the context, and its reason is hard to explain except as evidence to the readers of Jesus' supernatural powers. Dennis R. MacDonald concludes that this miracle account was actually based on Homer, as (according to MacDonald) were many others in Mark's Gospel.
Most Christians believe: yes he did, just as recorded in the gospels. Some, such as the Jesus Seminar, say that not all the events described in the gospels really happened, but Jesus may have performed some miracles in Palestine. Finally, others point out that there are credible reasons for rejecting the historicity of each miracle in the New Testament. On this last view, Jesus did not perform any miracles.
Jesus did many miracles in the bible, like turning water into wine and raising lazerus from the dead. the apostles did many miracles too, but the bible doesn't record all of the miracles that happened back then. in John 21:25, it says, "And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, i suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen." we can't do miracles now a days, because Jesus and the apostles aren't alive any more, but we can know that there were so many miracles that jesus and the apostles did, that even the world couldn't contain all the stories of them.
Jesus Christ performed countless miracles, and still is today. Some of the miracles that the bible tells us about are giving sight to a blind man, giving life to a man who had been dead for 3 days, and much much more. Simply read the bible, and you will see many miracles Christ performed. And ask any true Christian, and they will tell you about miracles that Christ has performed for them as well.
Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding before He was baptized.Answer:The New Testament does not record any miracles performed by Jesus before He was baptized. In John 1:33, 34, John the Baptist makes reference to the Spirit descending upon Jesus (which occurred when He was baptized), after which the account of Jesus' first miracle (turning water to wine at the wedding in Cana) is given in John 2.
A:No. It appears that few Jews of Palestine, the people most likely to have been eye-witnesses to any such miracles, believed that Jesus really performed miracles. The nuber who converted, believing Jesus to be the Messiah, seems to have been quite small. This must have been an embarrassment for the early Christians, as the gospels had Jesus say that a prophet can not find honour in his own country.A:Yes, many believed on him when they saw the miracles. I suppose that seeing is believing.Please see John 7.31 -"And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this [man] hath done?"
Neither god nor jesus exists they are fictional characters from childrens best seller the bible, a very popular book about a woman who cheats on joseph with god and whos son ''Performs miracles''Answer:Jesus performed many healing miracles during His ministry. He cured leprosy, blindness, deafness, deformities. He raised some from the dead and exorcised some with unclean spirits. Other miracles that fall outside the jurisiction of a medical doctor inlcude Him turning water into wine, walking on water, and the feeding of thousands. He is the Good Shepherd. Answer:Jesus Christ is the "WORD" of God. He is the Almighty "Creator" God of the Old Testament:"All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:3)In other words... Jesus Christ made the "atom" and any sub-particles we have yet to discover. There is no such thing as a "miracle" with Him.Miracles are for those who don't "believe."
