One great challenge in teaching the gospels in Kenya is that people have been taught to think of Jesus' miracles in quite a wrong way. Many preachers and crusades have banded together to do this.

They see the signs of power and are led to desire similar demonstrations in their own lives - healing diseases, taking away misery and pain. They think that was the main point; which it was not.

Jesus' miracles were signs - that pointed to himself. As I teach through the gospels, one of my aims is to change peoples' responses to the miracle passages, so that they no longer first ask "Is it possible to see the same miracles today?" but instead ask "What is this revealing about the glory of God's Son?"
