Why were the miracles of Christ recorded by the inspired writers?
"And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book:
but these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye
might have life through His name." John 20: 30, 31.
The Miracles of Christ
According to the Christian case, the miracles of Christ belong to the life and work of One who has
changed, and changed immeasurably for the better, the moral and religious condition of great nations, and
whose power after the lapse of eighteen centuries is still unspent. In the narratives which record the
miracles of Christ the miracles are not the most wonderful elements: His teaching, His unique personality,
the Divine perfection revealed under human conditions in His character and history, are more wonderful
still. Finally, His appearance has proved to be the transcendent fulfilment of a great hope which, for many
centuries, had been the stay, the strength, and the consolation of the race from which He sprang, a race to
which had come an exceptional knowledge of God. That Christ should have worked miracles does not
surprise me. It would have surprised me if He had not.
