The Bible tells us a lot about what Jesus did. What stands out are his miracles â€“ he healed the sick, controlled nature and even raised people from the dead.
The important thing about these miracles is what they mean. According to Jesus, these miracles were to show people that â€˜the kingdom of God has come.'
In Jesus' day the Kingdom of God was seen as the time when God would deal with all that was wrong with the world. He would come and undo sickness, overthrow evil and prove himself to be the King over his creation. Jesus showed by his miracles that this time was near.
Jesus' miracles show us that God cares about us and guarantee that what we all long for - the fullness of life and the end of evil â€“ will one day arrive.
But Jesus did more than perform miracles.
