Mascall: the definitive miracle

Tuesday, October 25, 2016
    Commemoration of Crispin & Crispinian, Martyrs at Rome, c.285
    Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
    —John 3:18 (NIV)
    If we are prepared to admit, even as a possibility, that Jesus was divine, or even that without being divine he was unique, then we must, as a matter of logic, discard any attempt to discredit the Gospel accounts on the ground that they record abnormal occurrences [i.e. miracles].
    ... E. L. Mascall (1905-1993), The Secularization of Christianity, London: Darton, Longman & Todd, 1966, p. 211-212 (see the book)
    See also John 3:18,21; 5:19; 6:38; 8:28; 12:49-50
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord Jesus, You are the greatest of the Father’s miracles.
