Topic: “Where Is Your Faith?” Do the Miracles of Jesus Impact Our Lives the Way They Impacted the Lives of Those Who Witnessed and Experienced Them?

For thirty-three years David and Josa Bivin have traveled each year to Europe and North America to teach Hebrew, give lectures and conduct workshops for fellow disciples of Jesus. This year’s tour will feature workshops in the United Kingdom and the United States:

Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, U.K. (September 13-14, 2013)

Houston, Texas, U.S.A. (September 20-21, 2013)

Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A. (September 27-28, 2013)

The intensive, two-day program will focus on a subject that is at the center of our Christian faith and is of the highest importance to every disciple of Jesus: “How to have greater confidence in the miraculous power of Jesus.” Plan now to attend and be personally challenged.

Workshop instructor: David Bivin. Fluent in Hebrew, David, a specialist in the Semitic and Jewish background of the Gospels, has lived in Israel for fifty years. He distills his years of study into two days (twelve class hours) of interactive study. No previous preparation is required. The workshop is designed for ordinary followers of Jesus.

Jesus was not only the greatest teacher the world has ever know, he was also a miracle worker! In this workshop, we will study many dramatic and exciting miracle stories from the life of Jesus, such as:

Healing of Peter’s Mother-in-law (Mt 8:14-15; Mk 1:29-31; Lk 4:38-39; Crook, Parallel Gospels #61)

Healing of a Leper (Mt 8:1-4; Mk 1:40-45; Lk 5:12-16; Crook, Parallel Gospels #65)

Healing of a Paralytic (Mt 9:1-8; Mk 2:1-12; Lk 5:17-26; Crook, Parallel Gospels #96)

Healing of Man with Withered Hand (Mt 12:9-14; Mk 3:1-6; Lk 6:6-11; Crook, Parallel Gospels #131)

Stilling of the Storm (Mt 8:18, 23-27; Mk 4:35-41; Lk 8:22-25; Crook, Parallel Gospels #158)

Healing of a Demon-possessed Man (Mt 8:28-34; Mk 5:1-20; Lk 8:26-39; Crook, Parallel Gospels #159)

Raising of Jairus’ Daughter from the Dead (Mt 9:18-19; 23-26; Mk 5:21-24; 35-43; Lk 8:40-42; 49-56; Crook, Parallel Gospels #160)

Healing of Woman with a Hemorrhage (Mt 9:20-22; Mk 5:25-34; Lk 8:43-48; Crook, Parallel Gospels #160)

Feeding of the Five Thousand (Mt 14:13-21; Mk 6:30-44; Lk 9:10-17; Crook, Parallel Gospels #166)

Healing of Epileptic Boy (Mt 17:14-21; Mk 9:14-29; Lk 9:37-43a; 17:5-6; Crook, Parallel Gospels #181)

Healing of Blind Man (Mt 20:29-34; Mk 10:46-52; Lk 18:35-43; Crook, Parallel Gospels #301)

Jesus raised the dead, healed the sick, cast out demons, calmed the violent waves of the Sea of Galilee, and miraculously fed the multitudes. We can expect a study of these accounts to change our lives and strengthen our faith. Understanding the implications of these stories within a first-century Jewish context helps twenty-first-century disciples of Jesus live victorious Christian lives.
