Have You Ever Heard?…

 …these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name. ( John 20:31)

Have you ever heard of a man who could turn plain old water into wine?

I’m talking about very good wine, worthy-to-be-served-at the-beginning-of-a-wedding great wine…. not a barely noticeable cupful but Thirty Gallons !!   Thirty gallons of water turned into great wine with a simple word.

♦ Jesus turned water into wine with just a word!   (John 2:1-11)

 

Have you ever heard of a man being able to know all about someone’s past?

I’m not talking about some basic generalities that apply to anyone…. but all the details about a person’s current and previous marriages  – all without the aid of technology or social media !!  A complete stranger knowing all about someone’s past.

Jesus knew the woman of Samaria  had been married 5 times and the man she was with was not her husband!                                                                                                                                                                                                        (John 4:16-18,29)

Have you ever heard of a man who could make a lame person walk?

I’m talking about someone who was known by many and verifiably unable to walk for Thirty Eight Years !!   Thirty-eight years of being lame overcome with a simple word!

Jesus healed a man who had been lame for over 38 years by just His word!   (John 5:5-16)

 

Have you ever heard of a man who could feed over 5000 people?

How about having no money and only a few helpers facing a tired hungry crowd which numbered about 5,000 men, not counting women and children – and the only food available was  Five Loaves of Bread and Two Fishes !!

 ♦ Jesus fed over 5000 men, women and children with only 5 loaves and 2 fishes!   (John 6:1-14)

 

Have you ever heard of a man who could walk on water?

How about walking out on a stormy sea being stirred up by strong winds – for a distance of Three to Four miles !!

 ♦ Jesus walked out 3-4 miles on a stormy sea to get into the disciples boat!   (John 6:16-21)

 

Have you ever heard of a man that could cure a person born blind?

Since the beginning of time such a thing had never been heard of…  so the parents were summoned and they testified that yes, their son really had been born blind !!

 ♦ Jesus opened the eyes of a man born blind (John 9:1-33)

 

Have you ever heard of a man that could raise the dead?

How about someone who could raise a man who had already been dead and buried for Four Days !!

 ♦ Jesus raised Lazarus from death after he had been in the tomb four days!  (John 11:11-45)

 

Have you ever heard of a man that was killed, was buried and then rose again from the dead?

I’m talking about someone with witnesses – that many saw him killed and many saw him alive again !!

 ♦ Jesus was crucified and buried, but on the third day He arose from the dead!  (John 19-21 / Matthew 28:5-7))
