Were Jesus’s Miracles Only Symbolic?

Episode 569 Show Notes 

From the Show

If Jesus did not rise from the dead and miraculously come back to life, we would still be in our sins and absolutely hopeless. Christianity would be pointless. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15 that if that is the case, “let’s eat and drink for tomorrow we die.” Who cares what we do or how we live. But that is not the case. Christianity depends on the miraculous work of Jesus Christ.

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. How do I know without a doubt that a choice I am making is God’s choice for me? It really feels like I am talking and listening to a wall 99% of the time.

2. I believe in the Trinity and in Jesus Christ, but what confuses me is that the Bible also says that “no one knows the day or hour” of Jesus’s return except for the Father. If Jesus is God, wouldn’t he know?

3. Does the bible say anything about the mistreatment of wild or domestic animals? I see so much of that going on today and was wondering if the bible addresses this.

4. I recently have become visually impaired. I have also heard that Jesus’s miracle of giving sight to the blind man was only symbolic of giving the man understanding to the gospel. What do you think?
