Jesus’ Miracles: A Foretaste of the Renewal of Creation

[T]he miracles of Jesus were a foretaste of the physical renewal in the new creation. They were a beginning, a taster, a demonstration of what God will do at the end of time.

  • For a moment in history, Jesus fed the poor. At the end of time, all God’s people will join his messianic banquet.
  • For a moment in history, Jesus healed the sick. At the end of time, God will heal all our infirmities.
  • For a moment in history, Jesus cast out demons. At the end of time, God will defeat Satan forever.
  • For a moment in history, Jesus raised the dead. At the end of time, God will raise the dead and death will be no more.

Quoted from Tim Chester (2009). The Ordinary Hero: Living the Cross and Resurrection. Inter Varsity Pr., p. 182.
