The miracles of Jesus have long fascinated many people, but their true significance has to be carefully unpacked to gain a better understanding of Jesus’ aims and ministry, and of God’s character and programme. This course will study Jesus’s miracles in relation to the powerful themes of the identity of Jesus, the Kingdom of God, and the fulfilment of the Old Testament. This course will provide some useful categories for organising these miracles and examine the pressing question of how the meaning and significance of Jesus’s miracles may continue in our time, without our being led astray into making dubious claims or supporting self-aggrandisement agendas.
