I’ve finally turned in my first theology paper for Seminary (for Systematic Theology II). The paper relates to the deity of Christ, showing how the miracles of Christ prove His deity by fulfilling a specific set of conditions taken from security theory.
There are at least two widely held views of the miracles of Christ: that they are designed to teach moral lessons and that they are signs. … If miracles are signs, what are they a sign of? There are three views: they are signs of the inauguration of the Kingdom of God, signs authenticating His teaching, or signs authenticating the identity of Christ Himself. This paper takes the final view, that the miracles of Jesus fit into a pattern showing, in an unmistakable way, that Jesus is God incarnate.
