Chapter 6: Evidences That Demand A Verdict - The miracles performed by the apostles in the name of the ascended Christ
2. The miracles performed by the apostles in the name of the ascended Christ.
How could we explain the number of miracles performed by the apostles in the name of Jesus Christ, recorded in the book of Acts after His ascension, unless we admit and believe that Jesus Christ is the living Son of God?
In the third chapter of the book of Acts we read about a lame man healed by the powerful name of Jesus Christ. The apostle Peter, seeing the man who was lame from his mother’s womb, said to him,
Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk... and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked (Acts 3:6-8) (Read also Acts 8:32-35).
Another miracle was performed in the name of Jesus Christ:
Now it came to pass, as Peter went through all parts of the country, that he also came down to the saints who dwelt in Lydda. There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden eight years and was paralyzed. And Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you. Arise and make your bed." Then he arose immediately. So all who dwelt at Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord (Acts 9:32-35 - NKJ).
