james replied to Marc Taylor You are quoting texts which show that x is dependant on y and “word” in john 1 does not mean “jesus” when the father said “let there be light” this means the word became light. When the fathers... (19 January, 2020 - 22:06)

Who calmed the storm and why?

Andrew replied to Alex Agreed about the feeding in the wilderness, Alex. The Jesus passing by detail is from a different story, of course (Mk. 6:48). Perhaps the point is that he meant to leave them to solve the problem... (22 January, 2020 - 18:26)
Alex We might add Jesus’ command to his disciples “you feed them” during the wilderness feeding as an example of Jesus’expectation that his disciples perform the same signs he performs by the same... (22 January, 2020 - 17:43)

How powerful is Jesus?
