No miracle of Scripture has called forth so much unbelief. The issue is not between the doubter and this ancient record, but between the doubter and the Lord Jesus Christ. (Mat 12:39); (Mat 12:40). Science, "falsely so called" (Ti1 6:20) failing to take account of the fact that it deals only with the outward phenomena of a fallen race, and of an earth under a curse (Gen 3:17-19) is intolerant of miracles. To faith, and to true science, miracle is what might be expected of divine love, interposing God in a physically and morally disordered universe. (Rom 8:19-23).
