This is the first of three miracles of Jesus in the canonical gospels in which he raises the dead , the other two being the raising of Jairus’ daughter and of Lazarus.
Resurrection miracles In the New Testament, Jesus is said to have raised several persons from death. These resurrections included the daughter of Jairus shortly after death, a young man in the midst of his own funeral procession, and Lazarus of Bethany , who had been buried for four days.
In Matthew, Luke and John, the resurrection announcement is followed by appearances of Jesus first to Mary Magdalene then to other followers.
Jairus (Greek: Ἰάειρος, Iaeiros, from the Hebrew name Yair), a patron or ruler of a Galilee synagogue, had asked Jesus to heal his 12-year-old daughter. As they were traveling to Jairus’ house, a sick woman in the crowd touched Jesus ‘ cloak and was healed of her sickness.
The transformation of water into wine at the Marriage at Cana or Wedding at Cana is the first miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of John.
Lazarus of Bethany, also known as Saint Lazarus or Lazarus of the Four Days , venerated in the Eastern Orthodox Church as (Righteous) Lazarus the Four Days Dead after he rose again, is the subject of a prominent sign of Jesus in the Gospel of John, in which Jesus restores him to life four days after his death.
Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again’ (Luke 24:5–7) . The female followers then returned to tell Jesus ‘ apostles and other people that Jesus had risen from the dead.
Recent astronomical research uses the contrast between the synoptic date of Jesus ‘ last Passover on the one hand with John’s date of the subsequent “Jewish Passover” on the other hand, to propose Jesus ‘ Last Supper to have been on Wednesday, 1 April AD 33 and the crucifixion on Friday 3 April AD 33 and the Resurrection
Science is far from establishing when a body’s capacity for consciousness actually leaves it. “ We don’t know how long it takes after death for the cells to decay to such a point that no matter what you do, you can never get them back again,” Parnia says. Which means that humans may take hours to fully die.
Biblical accounts The biblical narrative in Chapter 1 of the Acts of the Apostles takes place 40 days after the Resurrection . Acts 1 describes a meal at which Jesus commands the disciples to await the coming of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew has two post- Resurrection appearances, the first to Mary Magdalene and ” the other Mary” at the tomb, and the second, based on Mark 16:7, to all the disciples on a mountain in Galilee, where Jesus claims authority over heaven and Earth and commissions the disciples to preach the gospel to the whole world.
The earliest Christians maintained that Jesus was a human being who was made God – a god – a divine being. Later they ended up saying that Jesus was born to the union of God and a mortal because the Holy Spirit came upon Mary and that’s how she conceived Jesus , so Jesus literally had God as his father.
Some wish the ceremony that celebrated the beginning of the alleged marriage of Jesus and Mary Magdalene to be viewed as a “holy wedding”; and Jesus, Mary Magdalene , and their alleged daughter, Sarah , to be viewed as a “holy family”, in order to question traditional gender roles and family values.
Jesus takes his closest disciples – Peter, James and John (the inner circle) – and the child’s parents into the room. Jesus heals by touch when he takes the little girl by the hand. He says “Talitha cumi”, which means “ Little girl , get up.”
Jesus’ cleansing of ten lepers is one of the miracles of Jesus reported in the Gospels (Gospel of Luke 17: 11-19 ).
