From acclaimed New Testament scholar and leading author Fr. Raymond Collins, essential listening for Christians, Catholics, and all who wish to better understand Christ’s ministry.
Stories about Jesus' miracles have enthralled men and women for the past 2,000 years. Now you can gain deeper knowledge about the miraculous stories in the four Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, and the letters of Paul.
In 18 riveting audio lectures, Fr. Collins will guide you through the nature of miracles, the types of biblical miracles, and how miracle workers were understood in biblical times and early Christianity. Then you will journey through Scripture, gaining a fuller picture of Christ and his disciples.
First you will examine the Synoptic Gospels, learning how Matthew and Luke developed the stories in Mark. Then you will explore the Gospel of John, looking at its unique treatment of miracles, the wedding miracle at Cana, and the notion of a Johannine "sign".
After exploring John, you will revisit the only miracle story told in all four Gospels: the feeding of the multitudes. You will also encounter the works of the apostles whom Jesus commissioned to "work miracles".
The miracles of Jesus portray Christ in action, and the works of the apostles show how we are all called to follow the lord. Experience the power of miracles today.
