One of the big questions that arises in discussions about miraculous healing is this: Does Christ’s atoning death on the cross provide healing?

Those who affirm that the atonement is our provision for healing will usually refer to 3 passages of Scripture: Isa 53:4-5; Matt 8:14-17; and 1 Pet 2:24.

Raised from the Dead

by Scott

Craig Keener continues his discussion around the reality of the miraculous today, this being connected to his newest released work, Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts. Here, he particularly recounts the story of his own sister-in-law who was raised back to life after being dead for 3 hours. He also discusses other accounts of raisings of the dead.

But Keener does not approach this like a typical ‘super-charismatic’. He is very calm and collective as he recounts what took place and he maintains a strong theological anchor. Continue reading

Eye Witness Testimony of Miracles – Then & Now

by Scott

I continue with posting some videos of Craig Keener’s discussion about miracles, one in which he bases it off his newest 2-volume set, Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts.

In this video, Keener not only speaks of eye-witness credibility in biblical times, but also in our present-day. What was to be a footnote in a book slowly and surely became a 2-volume work. And he learned a little bit about miracles from his own family members. Continue reading

Craig Keener Video – Reflections on Miracles

by Scott

I wanted to post up a series of videos over the coming weeks in which Dr. Craig Keener, professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary, discusses the miraculous works of God today. He looks at both Scriptural arguments and church history evidence of such realities. They are short video bytes, so easily digestible.

Here is the first one.

God’s Healing Power at Work

by Scott

A few week’s back, I shared a video of a friend of mine from a partner church in England. It was about some amazing work that took place during his trip to India in the spring of 2010.

Well, below is another video from another partner church of ours in Glastonbury, England. These amazing things are taking place in the town of Glastonbury. Exciting stuff!
