Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath Matt. 12:1-8; Mark 2:23-28; Lk. 6:1-5

Guy Roberson

Why did the Lord Jesus choose to travel on the Sabbath? And why did He allow His disciples to pluck the grain to eat when they went through the grain fields?  As you know it was required for the people to stop all work, so they could rest on the Sabbath.  Therefore, the Pharisees charged Jesus and His disciples with violating the Sabbath ...

Jesus Healed Peter’s Mother-In-Law Matthew 8:14, 15; Mark 1:29-31; Luke 4:38, 39

Guy Roberson

After worshiping God in the synagogue on the Sabbath day, Jesus Christ and at least Peter, Andrew, James, and John went to Peter’s and Andrew’s home (Mark 1:29). When they entered, they were informed that Peter’s wife’s mother was bedridden with a fever, providing Christ another opportunity to perform an act of mercy. We know little of Peter’s wife, not even her name, except ...

Jesus Healed the Servant of a Centurion Matt. 8:5-13; Lk. 7:1-10

Guy Roberson

Jesus had just concluded His remarks on the majestic sermon on the Mount: “Now when He concluded all His sayings in the hearing of the people, He entered Capernaum” (Lk. 7:1).  In verse 46 of the sixth chapter Jesus asked, why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? He was dealing with the issue of authority ...

Jesus Healed a Leper Matt. 8:2-4; Mk. 1:40-45; Lk. 5:12-16

Guy Roberson

 

We have been looking at some instances where Jesus manifested His power, and therefore His deity, by healing various people.  There was absolutely no limitation of His power, and neither should there be since He is God.  Great multitudes followed Him and after healing them He admonished them not to make Him conspicuous by their reports.  An example of this warning is found ...

Jesus Healed a Man Possessed by a Demon

Mark 1:21-28, Luke 4:31-37

Guy Roberson

While the healing miracles of Jesus are generally accepted, many consider the exorcisms of Jesus doubtful.  Rudolf Bultmann’s comment is often quoted: “It is impossible to use electric light and the wireless and to avail ourselves of modern medical and surgical discoveries, and at the same time to believe in the New Testament world of demons and spirits.” ...

Jesus Cures a Paralyzed Man

Matt. 9:1-8; Mark 2:1-12; Luke 5:17-26

Guy Roberson

Jesus is in Capernaum where He went to teach, and He healed a paralyzed man.  Jesus was teaching in someone’s home and the house was so crowded there was no room for others to enter.  While we are looking at another fabulous miracle of healing by Jesus, we must keep in mind that miracles were not the real ...

Jesus Met a Woman From Canaan

Mt 15:21-28  Mk 7:24-30

Guy Roberson

 

After Jesus fed the 5000 plus showing He could take care of the needs of Israel; and walking on water, showing He is the Lord of creation, we find Jesus leaving Galilee and traveling to the region of Tyre and Sidon. Although the writers do not tell why He went there, it is possible that he was seeking to ...

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

Guy Roberson

Jesus performed many miracles including healing the sick and the disabled, making the blind to see and raising the dead.

This miracle of feeding five thousand men (Mark 6:44) plus the women and children was probably witnessed by the largest number of people of any miracle. It is unique in that it is recorded in all four gospels (Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6:30-44; Luke 9:10-17; ...

Jesus Walked on Water

Guy Roberson

Mt 14:22-33  Mk 6:45-56  Jn 6:16-24

“Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. But the boat was now in the middle ...

Jesus Healed the Impotent Man

Guy Roberson

 

In John 5, we read that, “After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.”  In Jerusalem near the sheep gate there was a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda (House of Mercy).  Many sick, blind, lame, and withered were waiting for the moving of the waters that would be stirred by an angel of the ...
