June 27 – So Much More

Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (John 20:30-31)

This is one of my favorite verses in John.  There was so much more happening that we don’t know about.  That only makes sense, but John puts it out there so that everyone is fully aware he couldn’t possibly get all of the information into one book.

It really gets your imagination flowing, though!  If Jesus did all of these amazing things – what were some of the other wild signs that He performed?  Think of the quiet moments that He would have spent with the twelve disciples, the stories they told back and forth, the experiences they had with Him and with each other.

And the next question is – if He did perform other signs in front of the disciples – how did they not understand who He was and the impact of His ministry?

These stories were told to us, though so that we might believe.  Nothing else needed to be said.
