You probably know that Jesus did miracles, but do you know why? Reading about Jesus' miracles is like pointing at constellations in the sky. We look at the stars themselves, not the finger pointing at them. This constellation of seven miracles in John's Gospel shows us who Jesus was and why it matters. It is the miracle worker we're to see, not just the miracles. Why was his turning water into wine not a party trick? Why did he walk on water instead of staying on shore? Why did he cry when raising Lazarus back to life? Each miracle in John's narration is a story that had to be told. The Jesus you meet in these pages is full of power and compassion, glory and approachability, grace and truth. Whether you've known Jesus a long time, are new to faith, or just curious about him, He Made the Stars Also draws upon John's seven sign events to show you why Jesus remains so compelling. ""With gentle, gracious prose that draws the reader in, pastor Cole Huffman uses the seven signs that Jesus performs in John's Gospel to lead us to wonder, love, and praise. Not only did I leave this book with a greater appreciation of the biblical scenes themselves, but even more, I grew in love for my Savior."" --Sean Michael Lucas, Reformed Theological Seminary ""Seven miraculous signs rock our nature-alone world and Huffman is there to guide us in the life-changing truth of Jesus. His fresh meditations resonate with the soul and give us a taste of the most real world. The Lord of the universe and the hope of the world not only transforms 'wash-pot water to star-bright wine' but gives us life through his flesh. Huffman tells the stories that have to be told."" --Douglas D. Webster, Beeson Divinity School ""This seasoned pastor, poet, and sage takes us from a small-town wedding venue, to a windswept lake, to a cemetery full of forlorn people--he shows along the way how Jesus is triumphant over our ultimate perils and that good news exists for those believing the bottom has dropped out of life."" --Matthew R.
