    Jacoba - You are both right in your teaching. There are many reasons why God does a lot of things and He does it all for His own glory whether out of compassion or to show His power or for our good etc. Let's add John 9:1-3 to the discussion. This is e-home cell we have online I enjoy the contributions. Let's continue to glean through scriptures to build ourselves up in all humility.

    Indeed, thank you Lord!

    Luk2677. Jesus is compassionate, you can be compassionate, I can be compassionate; so can anybody and certainly Jesus taught that we should be; but His miracles were to prove He was from God. The apostles preformed miracles to prove their words came from God. I love to talk about the Bible and enjoy discussions about the Bible. That is what apostle Paul told us to do, reason together.
  • Lu2677
    Jacoba,another post you said "Jesus healed to prove he is the Son of God".Matthew 14;14(He healed to show his compassion)Matthew 8;8(the man called him"Lord" before God healed his servant)Mark 1;34(He healed many but would not let the devils speak after he cast them out because they knew who he was, he did not want the people to know},etc. His miracles were not to prove who he is.
  • Jacoba
    This chapter is a very good thing to read completely when you have a bad attitude or are just plain mad.
  • Mt ochrymowicz
    But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 1 peter 2:9
