Yet Jesus preformed miracles In the name of God. Tovia Singer February 21, 2015 at 8:21 pm I am grateful for your question. If we examine the validity of the New Testament and we uncritically accept the stories which portray Jesus as performing miracles, then we are already a Christian. We are engaging in a circular reasoning. As it turns out, false religions claim that their adherents were miracle workers. Pharaoh’s magicians were able to replicate some of Moses’ miracles. victoria kaneshiro January 29, 2015 at 2:23 pm Hi Rabbi, My grandfather was a Spanish Jew (Sephardi); he moved to Mexico in the late 1800’s and married a 13 year old Indigenous girl, named Maria (my grandma). I know the conditions were never good between Spanish Catholics and Sefardos . My whole family was raised as Roman Catholic (heretics) . I am the youngest of 11 children and YHWH opened my eyes at 58 years old. I Love my God and will continue to search the Holy Scriptures, to build upon. Q: The Hebrew word for “adversary” is Satan: is this a proper noun or an adjective? Thanks for your time, and may God bless you. Victoria Tovia Singer February 2, 2015 at 6:56 am It is a noun.
