Question of the Week: If you could witness one of Jesus’ miracles, which one would it be and why?

If you could witness one of Jesus’ miracles, which one would it be and why?

Nia Campinha-Bacote, ’15: When He turns water into wine, cuz that was His first one, and I bet His mom was all like, “WHAAA???” ūüôā

Elizabeth Jean-Marie, ’15: I wanna see Jesus walking on water. That seems like it was mind blowing to all the disciples.

Nicholas Chuan, ’18: I wanna see Jesus breaking the five loaves and two fish to feed the five thousand. That was one with the most witnesses and definitely convinced many people.

Alana Felton, ’18: I want to see Jesus raise Lazarus from the dead. It’s such an emotionally charged and touching story. It shows Jesus’ love not just for all of humanity but for individuals as well.

Russyan Mark Mabeza, ’15: Ahh, I would have loved to see Jesus ascend to the heavens.

Josiah Jordan, ’18: I’d definitely want to witness Jesus’ resurrection!!! We don’t call Jesus our Lord, nor do we put our faith in Him, because He died for our sins.¬† Rather, it’s because He rose again¬†and now sits at the right-hand of the Father’s throne that we can¬†call Him¬†Lord and the One, true Son of God, whom He claimed to be. If Jesus simply¬†died¬†and did not come to life, He would’ve been just as mortal, limited, and hopeless as everyone else.¬† But because He lives–because Jesus conquered death–we all can now inherit the promise of hope and eternal life in His name! #YayJesus

Esmeralda Lopez, ’16: I would love to witness Jesus heal the man with a crippled hand on the Sabbath. Though the miracle is small in comparison to others performed, it speaks volumes about how rules created from scripture can sometimes impede the very things we are called to do, show mercy, justice, and kindness.
