  • How Much Is a Miracle?

    Why were the disciples so surprised that Jesus rose from the dead? Do you remember what Jesus told them at Caesarea Philippi? He said, “the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again” (Mark 8:31). The Bible records a number of other times Jesus tells them he will suffer and die.
