AN HISTORICAL ACCOUNT

I have been reading poems, romances, vision-literature, legends, myths all my life. I know what they are like.

I know that not one of them is like this.”

Prof. C. S. Lewis

A GENUINE MIRACLE

Jesus does what no mere human could ever do.

A SELECTIVE MIRACLE

A great crowd of needy people surrounded the pool that day.

Only one was cured.

There are thousands of people who need God around us.

Will you be one found by him?

A PROVOCATIVE MIRACLE

The day on which this took place was a Sabbath.”

The custodians of God’s law were not amused.

A SIGNIFICANT MIRACLE

“ Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:30-31).
