Bible Contradiction? Did Jesus perform many signs and wonders?

Some theology you can sink your teeth into, from our friend SlimJim      –LD

The Domain for Truth

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Jesus perform many signs and wonders?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

Yes.

The Skeptic Annotated Bible’s explanation: “Jesus performed many signs, wonders, and miracles everywhere he went. He was famous for them.”

“And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.” (Mark 16:20)

“this man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”” (John 3:2)

“Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book;” (John 20:30)

“Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man [a]attested…

You are ill without a skill.

Another fellow Christian blogger: we are not alone.    –LD

 

Message from above

Your skill is a call from God. Your skill is not only meant for entertainment or showmanship, your skill is an assignment from God to help humanity and to serve Him. I know you are asking yourself why a skill should be termed as a “call” from God. Let me shock you!

Exodus 35:30 – 32 says, “And Moses said to the children of Israel, “See, the Lord has called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; “and He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom and understanding, in knowledge and all manner of workmanship, “to design artistic works, to work in gold and silver and bronze …..

Is that not wonderful? God had to put His Spirit into Bezaleel to use his skill to build the church of God. Any skill God gives a man is for…

May 14 – Bend Down

From our fellow Christian blogger, “The River Walk.” Wouldn’t you like to know what Jesus wrote in the dust with His finger?    –LD

 

THE RIVER WALK

They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus bent down and wrote in the dust with his finger.
(John 8:6)

Read: 1 Kings 22:10-53, 2 Chronicles 18:9 – 20:30

Relate: In Jeremiah 17, God says, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.”

When the people brought to Jesus the adulteress, they didn’t really care about keeping the law. Adultery was actually a very impractical crime for them to try and punish. On the one hand, it was very widespread. On the other, any capital crime needed to receive Roman approval. For such a crime that approval would be very difficult to acquire. Besides, they didn’t like needing to get “permission” from Rome for anything. On…

Know You

From Hayley’s Red Letters blog. We are not alone.    –LD

 

Red Letters

There was a very difficult period in my life when I felt so incredibly lost and lonely and I didn’t know which direction to turn.

I was suffering from acute anxiety that was crippling me in areas of my everyday life.

To look at me I was the picture of health but inside I was a mess and completely lost.

It wasn’t until I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour that I truly discovered who I was and ‘found myself’ and found fulfillment in Him.

Jesus desired for me to know Him in the same way that He knew me.

Below are lyrics to part of the chorus of the song ‘Know you’:

 I was lost but you came to find me 

Leaving the many you would come to draw me back to you                    

I was empty but you…

Save Me

From unashamedofjesus.org… Can we add “Amen!” to that?     –LD

 

Unashamed of Jesus

Save me, O God, by Your name, And vindicate me by Your power. Hear my prayer, O God; Give ear to the words of my mouth.

22 The scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, “He is possessed by [k]Beelzebul,” and “He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons.” 23 And He called them to Himself and began speaking to them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. 26 If Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but [l]he is finished! 27 But no one can enter the strong man’s house and plunder his property unless…

What We Lost When We Lost Our Hymnals – Tim Challies

From “A Mom Looking Up”… Marcia, I love those old hymnals, too. And I’ll bet we have a lot of company!   –LD

 

A Mom Looking Up

We still use hymnals at “my church”. I was raised using one and I will likely die (or be raptured) still using it. The contemporary worship/praise music has its place, I suppose, and I’m not entirely against them, but I love the old hymns. The contemporary stuff…particularly the repetitive choruses…are like cool whip. Sweet addition to the pie, but they aren’t the pie. One thing the author of the following article did not mention, is the hymns tell The Gospel. There is meat, substance, to the lyrics that is often lacking in the current stuff.

Here is my grandfather’s copy of the hymnal I grew up with and still use today. It was given to my son when my grandfather went Home.

This one song above has the Gospel all over it. Kids grow up hearing this, the Word is being implanted in their hearts.

TV Morality — BeautyBeyondBones

Confession: I like watching TV commercials. Partly because I’m an actor and I do a lot of commercials, and so it’s kinda like homework to see what the commercial “trends” are. Some of these trends include: making dads and men seem like dopes or incompetent, ethnically ambiguous “heroes,” the switching of normal gender roles, and…

Home and Dry by Hayley’s Mom

From Hayley’s Mom (We are not alone)  —LD

 

Red Letters

I am delighted to introduce my beautiful Mom, Maureen, to you all. We nearly lost her in May last year and I thank God that He healed her in such a miraculous way. She is the rock of our family and exudes the love of Jesus in every part of her being.

I asked her only yesterday if she would write a post for Red Letters. Her immediate response was, ‘Yes’. Later on she told me she had no idea what she would write but not long after, God had given her the words. I honour my Mom, thank God for her and feel privileged to introduce her to the Red Letters blog.

‘Definitely safe or successful’, is the Collins English dictionary definition of ‘Home and Dry’.

Psalms 33:15 | Complete Perfection

From another Christian blogger… We are not alone.   –LD

 

Human Effort

made

What is the greatest thing you have ever created? It is an interesting question because there are so many ways to answer the question. I am not an artisan or an engineer so my physical creations are not all that great. I am happy with some of the things I have built, but great is not a word I would use. I like to write but those creations are a work in progress. My children are a great creation, the greatest, but biology is more involved in that creation than the work of my mind and hands. Oddly what does jump out as an answer is one of the early software development efforts I was assigned. I was given a task to modify the check printing software of the company to be able to print checks in French Canadian. Building logic to write out any number like “one hundred fifty-two”…
