Did Jesus Exhibit Divine Authority?

Yes He did. He stated He is the Son of God. Luke 22: 70-71 “70 And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.” 71 Then they said, “What further need do we have of testimony? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”” He used divine titles for Himself, such titles included “I AM” and “Son of Man”, and the Jews of their time knew exactley what He meant. The Jews tried to stone Him to death for blasphemy! In fact, the only charge the Jews had on Him before His crucifixion was that He claimed to be the Christ! Supposed blasphemy was the death penalty!

Here are some examples of Jesus’ divine authority:

1. He commanded demons to leave people, and the demons obeyed Him. Matthew 10:1, Luke 4:36 and Mark 3:15.

2. He calmed the stormy wind and sea with just a short phrase. Matthew 8: 26-27

3. He claimed the authority to forgive sins and trangressions as well as grant people with eternal life. Matthew 9:6, 8 and Mark 2:10

4. He taught with divine authority Mark 1:22, Luke 4:32 and Matthew 7:29

5. He healed lepers, and others with different forms of diseases. Gave the authority to others the abilty to heal.He also resurrected people from death. Mark 5:38-43,Luke 4:39 and John 11:33-34

Yes Jesus is God! Repent and rejoice!

Here is a partial list of the miracles of Jesus that were written of in the Bible:

– Jesus born of a virgin; Matthew 1: 24-25
– Jesus changed the water into wine; John 2: 6-10
– Jesus caused the disciples to catch a large amount of fish; Luke 5: 4-6
– Casting out of demons; Matthew 8: 28-32
– The healing of lepers; Matthew 15: 22-28
– Healing illness and disease; Luke 17: 14

– Jesus cured a deaf man; Mark 7: 32-35
– He fed the multitudes; Matthew 14: 15-21
– He walked on water; Matthew 14: 25-27

Jesus is 100% man and 100% God also known as the Hypostatic Union. These miracles attest to that. This was just a partial list of the pages of the Bible, and I would strongly suggest you read all of the Gospel and pray to God that the Holy Spirit opens your heart and mind to seeing the truth.

Can Miracles Be Assessed By Science?

How would one define what a miracle really is? A Dictionary definition of a Miracle is:

1. An effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.
2. Such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God.
3. A wonder; marvel.

From a Christian definition I have heard it be stated; “They are a direct act of a personal God that cannot be predicted or explained by only natural causes”.

The Scottish Philosopher David Hume explained that “Miracles are “violations” of natural laws, and that natural laws cannot be violated”, thus miracles don’t exist! But he was begging the question.

Natural Law explains how the Natural World operates, however it cannot control what happens in it. Science is prescriptive not descriptive as American Philosopher Paul Copan describes. Actually if the entirety of “things” must conform to prior experience then scientific progress would be impossible. Since science currently states, “the Universe came into existence from nothing” how could that have been predicted by natural law?

If the Universe as science explains came into existence from “nothing” how invalid would Jesus walking on the water be? Is that “crazier” than the Universe explanation by science? Jesus’ very resurrection is a historically well supported event. A documented “Miracle”! Jesus appeared to over 500 people after his resurrection to both believers and unbelievers!

This may not be “scientific” as proven in a lab, however, eyewitness evidence is certainly a heavyweight form of evidence!
