2 Jesus the Miracle Worker
2.1 Jesus performed many kinds of miracle: natural
miracles, healing miracles, and exorcisms
2.1.1 Healing miracles
18.104.22.168 "God created people whole and perfect"
22.214.171.124.1 Sick or disabled were being punished by
god, for either their sins or there parents
126.96.36.199.1.1 Outcasts so thus landed them in
poverty, outcasts were believed to
contaminate good people causing
the people to be "Defiled"
188.8.131.52.2 Religious leaders disliked Jesus for
spending time with them. Mark
Describes this as Jesus showing his
Compassion and Authority
2.1.2 Nature Miracles
184.108.40.206 Showed his ultimate power and
Authority during nature miracles
220.127.116.11 Calmed The winds and
Waves, Walked on Water, Fed
18.104.22.168 Mental Illness was believed to be
evil spirits entering someone's
body and taking control
22.214.171.124 no none argued if Jesus
healed these people but
where his power came from?
126.96.36.199.1 Ordinary people
believed it came from
God because evil cant
cast out evil
188.8.131.52.2 Jesus Silenced Demons where
he met them this was part of the
184.108.40.206.3 Scribes were sent from
Jerusalem to investigate
Jesus and Decided the
power came from Satan
3 Feeding of the 5000
3.1 Old Testament predicts that the
messiah would feed people
miraculously like moses did.
3.2 Story Shows: Jesus is the messiah who feeds the people as
Moses had done, Jesus fulfills the Law represented by
Moses and the Prophets. Jesus behaves as he is God: he
instructs people then produces food for them miraculously
3.3 Jesus looks forward to the last supper
and the messianic banquet
3.3.1 people thought the kingdom of god would be
like a big get together of people enjoying
eachothers company: the kingdom of God was
often referred to as "The messianic Banquet"
3.3.2 Jesus hosts a large meal for a lot of people like
he will at the messianic banquet. Serves bread
like he will at the last supper.
3.3.3 some scholars believe that the whole story had
been invented or that the amount of
people/food had been exaggerated. some say
they shared a packed lunch and this was
mistaken as a miracle (liberalist view)
220.127.116.11 Mark goes to great pain to be specific about
how many are sat in the groups. How many
coins that are needed (200). How much food
was used and how many baskets. it is
evident that a natural miracle occured
3.4.1 Jesus the teachers
18.104.22.168 The events leading up taught just as much. After a long day of worshipping, the apostles meet and go across just to have a chance to relax and recap. Even though the people take this away Jesus shows compassion rather than frustration

(Messiah).’ Do you agree? Give reasons for your answer, showing that
you have thought about more than one point of view.
