Keith Warrington's book paints a compelling picture of Jesus as miracle worker. It shows how miracles functioned as a strategy in his ministry, and explains why some miracles are recorded differently in different Gospels.
In this magisterial study, Keith Warrington paints a rounded picture of Jesus as a miracle worker by exploring each of the miracles in the Gospels in their literary and historical setting. He demonstrates that, while the miracles are historically authentic, there are several reasons for their presence in the Gospels other than simply to identify Jesus as a miracle worker. They are also intended to function as vehicles of teaching: expressing aspects of the mission and person of Jesus, providing lessons for his would-be disciples and adding theological value for each Gospel's original audience.
