Re:Verse passage – Mark 1:36-45 (day three)

“Go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Theories differ as to how miracles happen. Some say they result from a suspension of the laws of nature: molecules of water vanish from existence and molecules of wine appear in their place. Others say no, miracles result from a mastery of the laws of nature: an enormous amount of energy is brought to bear to break the water’s molecular and atomic bonds and reassemble them into the molecules for ethyl alcohol, etc. At issue, though, is not the method of Jesus’s miracles, but rather their meaning. Without meaning, a miracle will carry no soul-healing power. Jesus told the man that only the fellowship of God’s people would teach him this miracle’s place in the purpose and potential of his life.
