The Miracles of Jesus According to John

Their Christological and Eschatological Significance
  • Foreword by J. Dwight Pentecost
  • By Stephen S. Kim
$19.99
($28.00)
In our age of theological relativism, Jesus' question to His own disciples continues to ring true: ""Who do the people say that the Son of Man is?"" Through Jesus' seven miracles and His seven ""I Am"" sayings, the apostle John provides a clear answer to that all-important question. Furthermore, what do Jesus' miracles represent? Are they designed to point to something or someone? In our ""supernatural-crazed"" culture that affects even evangelical Christianity, it is refreshing to be reminded that biblical miracles were never arbitrary but were always purposeful, authenticating God's message and His messenger(s). In the Gospel of John, the miracles of Jesus are both Christological, that is, they highlight Jesus' Person, and eschatological, that is, they foreshadow the work the Messiah will do in His future Advent. The miracles remind us that God's desire for every believer is first and foremost a spiritual relationship with Him through His Son. Furthermore, Jesus' miracles also remind us that God's work in and for every believer will be fully and ultimately realized in the everlasting life. ""Dr. Stephen Kim has penned a clear and concise explanation of the purpose and significance of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospel of John. The miracles of Jesus signal Him as the long-awaited Messiah and Divine Son of God whose life-giving actions evoke personal response to Him. For those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the miraculous signs of Jesus show us that the best is yet to come. This is a great book that captures the greatest story ever told; God has come in the flesh, and His name is Jesus Christ."" --Paul A. Jackson Senior Pastor, Glenwood Community Church, Vancouver, Washington ""Dr. Stephen Kim has given us a masterful exposition of Jesus' seven signs in John's magnificent Fourth Gospel. His scholarship is evident in his discussion of the gospel's structure and of its many connections with the Old Testament. He explains these sometimes perplexing miracles with clarity and care. Yet his book aims for both the head and the heart. His applications radiate his love for the Savior about whom John wrote; and he beckons to come to these gospel stories without sandals on our feet for we are on holy ground. If I were a pastor planning a sermon series on Christ's seven signs, Kim's book is the first resource I'd consult."" --Daniel R. Lockwood President and Professor of Theology, Multnomah University Stephen S. Kim (PhD, Dallas Theological Seminary) is Professor of Bible at Multnomah Biblical Seminary in Portland, Oregon. He is the author of numerous scholarly articles on the Fourth Gospel.
