Did Jesus Really Perform Miracles?

This is an excellent article over at Probe.org. There's not much to comment on, as the article pretty much says it all, but I thought it was worth passing on.

There are many "Christian" scholars today that deny Jesus's miracles. They pick and choose what they want to believe from the Bible as though they were at a $12.99 all-you-can-eat buffett. If you look at extra-Biblical writings of the first and second centuries after Christ, it's especially interesting to note that none of Jesus's skeptics or enemies of his time refuted the fact that he performed miracles. They denied his deity and instead called Jesus a sorcerer. He did perform miracles. No doubt.

I've seen miracles in my own life and in those I love and care for. I have no problem believing in the miracles of the Bible. In fact, if I didn't believe in them, I wouldn't be a Christian. - Which has for many years been a puzzle to me - why do liberals who don't believe the Scriptures choose to call themselves Christians? Guess it "feels good". After all, isn't that what liberalism is all about? Feeling good about yourself? I'm a good person... I care more than you do.

II Timothy 3:5: "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

It is politically expedient! They can't win against truth so--like the jihadis of Islam, they choose to pervert truth.

Yes he did; it says so in the Bible. Period. The. End.

I refuse to get into such debates with libbies!

What is interesting about the liberal "theologians" is that they don't deny the evidence of miracles. They just start out with the assumption that they don't exist. Therefore, Jesus could not have done them. Ironically, Christians are more open minded than these liberals, because we acknowledge that events can happen due to natural or supernatural causes, whereas they only consider natural causes.
