Are Miracles Supernatural?

January 18, 2008

One of my fondest seminary professors, Sean McDonough, posed this question in his classes on the Gospels: “Are the miracles really supernatural?” In answering this question he drew upon the insights of Jürgen Moltmann who asserts: “Jesus’ healings are not supernatural miracles in a natural world. They are the only truly ‘natural’ thing in a world that is unnatural, demonized, and wounded.[1]
