In the history of the world, many religious leaders making stupendous claims have come and gone. Why then has the life and message of Jesus endured as it has? The biblical answer to this is that his claims were shown to be true by supernatural acts. This verification, the words he taught and the life he lived place him a category distinct from all other religious leaders. This course considers the reasons for Jesus’ miraculous life.

This course provided some real gems in terms of take-aways for me. I do wish that the questions on the quizzes would have been more based on knowledge learned rather than questions like, “Who said…?” As a teacher myself, those are not valid questions as I don’t really think that’s what you are trying to get students to learn in this process. I appreciated time given to respond to questions and think more deeply about the content.Saw ee, Malaysia
The topic of this course was very interesting. I never thought about the meaning behind each of Jesus’s specific miracles, or how important they are in general to authenticate His Messiahship. I loved learning how each miracle fulfilled an OT prophecy. Another interesting question posed was “ would you believe in Jesus if He had not preformed miracles?” Overall great course.Sarah, United States (US)
I think some of the quiz questions could have been better.Jenneane, United States (US)

I enjoyed this course and I thought it was really well organized. The scripture links provided were helpful. The reading material was interesting and relevant, and the journal and discussion questions helped to solidify learning.Laura, United States (US)
I thought the course was going to be about the different miracles that Jesus performed specifically rather than the purpose of miracles. The course was still interesting though.Gemma, Austria
I am so glad that I took this course. It has deepened my understanding of the Bible and Jesus’ miracles! Praise His name!Jon, United States (US)
The videos showing where Jesus walked, places where John the Baptist baptized were interesting; overall geography. Discussions on why Jesus did miracles were insightful and helpful. I would recommend this course.Robina, United States (US)
I really appreciate the time you took to put together these lessons. I learned so much about the miracles of Jesus. My faith and understanding grew more! I encourage others to take this course. It’s a great opportunity you have to learn about the purpose of the miracles and you can preach the truth about it to people who are not able to understand this topic. Thank you so much for your support to Christian teachers.Melba, United States (US)

This was a great course. I really loved the 6th lesson as it provided a great tying up of previous thoughts. It also helped expose the flaws of the fake healers of today.Donald, United States (US)
Through my nearly 58 years of life, I had come to wonder why Jesus did miracles. That question was answered in this course for me.
