Chapter Summary

The miracles of Jesus do not exist in strict isolation. There are many threads linking them to other data and problems, for in a miraculous healing the question of the relation between disease and sin immediately arises. Is there a relation between healing and prayer, and how must it be regarded if there is? The questions are considered by the following points: disease and sin, forgiveness and healing, miracles and faith, miracles and prayer, miracles and the word, and miracles and salvation. The concept "salvation" as the "peace" brought about by God's grace contains every aspect that manifests itself in miracles: creation and providence, forgiveness and atonement, re-creation and promise. The author therefore believes that in the definition of Jesus' miracle as a salutary function of the Kingdom of God the most effective expression is given to the New Testament witness of miracles.

Keywords: forgiveness; healing; Jesus' miracle; Kingdom of God; New Testament; prayer; salutary function
