Day 152

“The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book.” (John 20:30 NLT)

My year long journey is almost at the halfway point. And here we come to the end of the four Gospels. I know that the Book of Acts lies ahead, one of my favourite of the New Testament books. I always thought that it would make a good film, and now it seems that is indeed what will happen. The makers of the Bible tv series are planning a sequel which will follow the Book of Acts.

Meanwhile, we say farewell to John. And here, unusually is a verse that is almost painfully brief. What were these other miraculous signs?

We will never know. But remember what Jesus said to Thomas? How wonderful for those who have not seen and yet still believe.

Maybe we don’t need to know what the other signs were. Maybe it’s enough to be told that there were other signs?
