12:27 Now you are Christ’s body, and each of you is a member of it. 12:28 And God has placed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, gifts of healing, helps, gifts of leadership, different kinds of tongues. 12:29 Not all are apostles, are they? Not all are prophets, are they? Not all are teachers, are they? Not all perform miracles, do they? 12:30 Not all have gifts of healing, do they? Not all speak in tongues, do they? Not all interpret, do they?
9:38 John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him because he was not following us.” 9:39 But Jesus said, “Do not stop him, because no one who does a miracle in my name will be able soon afterward to say anything bad about me. 9:40 For whoever is not against us is for us.

Ian wrote:If the transforming effect of Christ’s love, and the mystery of love itself are the miracles being referred to in the title, then I would agree that they are all-important. But most surprising, unexplained events, whether labelled as miracles or not, carry much less weight with me. There are plenty of surprising, unexplained events ranging from conjuring tricks to mysterious and wonderful aspects of the world around us, but I would not want to base my faith on them. It just seems too fragile a foundation.
