It lies at the heart of our Christian faith—the profound but simple truth that the same power that can turn water into wine can also breathe life into a long-dead corpse.
These are the miracles of Jesus, evidence that he is the Son of God. It is in the Gospel accounts of his ministry that we discover his never-failing mastery over the forces of sickness and sin, nature and Satan, life and death.
The facts about each of the 35 recorded miracles of Jesus—complemented by Charles C. Ryrie's biblical research and personal insights—continue to carry a faith-strengthening message to the Lord's followers today.
Charles C. Ryrie is a renowned author and scholar. He has written dozens of books which have sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide.
