Bonus Reading, Matthew

The Many Miracles of Jesus            

Today's reading describes several instances of Jesus' miracles.  He heals a number of people, including a leper.  He calms a storm while crossing the Sea of Galilee.  And he exorcises a host of demons from two possessed individuals.  As in the Gospel of Mark, one question that these stories are meant to inspire is: "Who is this Jesus?"

Read Matthew 8:1-34  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
