Jesus is one of the most argued-over people in history. The question of who Jesus was debated by the Christian church for several centuries, and after 2,000 years the question is still as fresh as ever.
In his own time, Jesus was famous as a miracle worker. The miracles shocked those who saw them – not because of the spactacle, but because of the dangerous message they carried about Jesus. In these pages we follow the new BBC series, The Miracles of Jesus, and try to decode three miracles to find out what they were all about.

The salt of the earth… on the straight and narrow… a baptism of fire… many everyday sayings started with Jesus. Here are 30 of them. We’ve gathered the best known modern sayings and included some notes on what they mean and where you can find them in the accounts of Jesus’ life.
The Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – are the first four books of the New Testament. All of them tell the story of Jesus’s life, and like four witnesses to an event, they each have a different angle on what happened, and what it all means.
You can read and print out complete copies of all of the four Gospels. The Bible version is the Contemporary English Version (CEV). Used with permission from Bible Society. Full copies of the CEV Bible can be ordered by clicking here.
