That is the very last verse in the book of John and it is incredible to think about! After everything we know about Jesus from the Bible, there are many other things He did that were never written down. How many more people did He heal? How many more demons did He drive out? How many more people did He raise from the dead? What other kinds of miracles did He do? I don’t know, but I know it must have been awesome! From the time Jesus started His ministry at the age of 30 in 30 A.D. to the time He was crucified in 33 A.D. He accomplished so much that there would not be enough room in the whole world for the books about all of it! That’s cool!
Here are just a few of the many amazing things that Jesus did!
Jesus changed water into wine (John 2:1-11), which was His first miracle!
Jesus healed the son of a royal official (John 4:43-54), which was His second miracle!
Jesus healed a man who had been unable to walk for 38 years! (John 5:1-15)
Jesus walked on water after performing a miracle of feeding 5,000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 small fish! (John 6:1-24)
Jesus healed a man who was born blind! (John 9:1-12)
Jesus raised a man named Lazarus from the dead! (John 11:1-44)
Most of all, Jesus died for all of us for the forgiveness of our sins and He rose back to life three days later defeating sin and death as the King of kings and Lord of lords! (John 19 and 20)
After Jesus rose from the dead and before He ascended into Heaven, He appeared to many of His followers over a period of 40 days! He even cooked breakfast for them! Can you imagine having the risen Lord cooking you breakfast just shortly after He was crucified?! Amazing! Read John chapter 21 for that. The Apostle Peter’s reaction to seeing Jesus is great! May we all run (and even swim) to Jesus just like that!
Check out Acts chapter 1, Mark 16:19, and Luke 24:50-53 to read about Jesus being taken up into Heaven! Then read about what it was like when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to earth in Acts chapter 2! It is incredible!
Jesus did many amazing miracles, but the most amazing miracle of all is that He saved our souls! That is a free gift from God, so accept it with joy! God has provided a way out of sin and death and that Way is through faith in Jesus!
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Grace and peace to you all!
