The gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are filled with well-known accounts of the miracles Christ performed. Christians love to reflect on Christ’s healing of the Gadarene demoniac, His raising to life Jairus’s daughter, and His bountifully providing food for five thousand hungry listeners. But author Gerald M. Bilkes doesn’t want us to study these miracles just because they are loved or well known. He wants us to value them for what they teach us about Christ. He writes, “When we study the miracles, we should never lose sight of the glorious and magnificent Christ who performed them. He still performs miracles in hearts and lives. . . . These things should astound us no less than the miracles He did when He was on earth.” This heart-warming, experiential look at twenty-two of Christ’s miracles, with questions following each chapter, is an excellent tool for personal or group Bible study and will lead you to the cross, the empty tomb, and the God who purposed and performed these important events of Scripture.
