Description

‘If there was only one book to read on the miracles of Jesus it would need to be this one . . . A well informed, finely nuanced and accessible treatment of this important topic.Professor Graham H. Twelftree, Regent University

The Healer from Nazareth asks what the truth is behind the gospel accounts of Jesus’ miracles. By means of a thorough examination of the evidence – historical, cultural, literary and social-scientific Eric Eve shows how these ‘signs and wonders’ might most plausibly be understood.

This is an ideal introduction to the gospel accounts of Jesus’ miracles and to the larger questions surrounding study of the historical Jesus. Eve’s balanced approach and clear style make the book accessible to readers of all Christian traditions and to non-Christians who are interested in finding out more about Jesus.

Eric Eve is Research Fellow and Tutor in Theology at Harris Manchester College, Oxford, where he teaches New Testament. He is the author of The Jewish Context of Jesus’ Miracles (Sheffield) and has contributed the section on 1 Peter to the Oxford Bible Commentary (OUP).
