The Deaf Hear... Amy

This is among the most beautiful things I've ever witnessed take place. It reminds me of Jesus, Yeshua the Messiah and what He did in the lives of the people around Him.

Naturally, the Gospel accounts are very controversial, particularly in the age of modernity, but even before our day, even back into the days shortly after Christ's very ascension, the account was very controversial.

This video of Amy gives me insight into the lives of those Jesus healed, particularly the deaf. The deaf whom He laid hands on and healed would have been just as joyful as this young woman. They would have run home to their families. They would meet their parents for the first time in a way they had never known. They would struggle to tell about the Man of Galilee who had changed the course of their lives.

And then along the way, smarmy scientists and Jewish scribes would poke holes in their accounts, and for  some, they might deliver unto death if they did not cease with their storytelling about the Man of Galilee.

Additionally, the trial of Yeshua the Messiah would garner controversy. Some, even amongst the Council,  would argue in His defense. But the majority would have their say before Pilate, and He would be put to  death.

But despite the unanimity among enlightened moderners that these events never took place, there was a  strong presence for decades after His death, that continued to enraged the Jewish high priests. The leaders of the church James, Peter, and John, continue to be an irritant to the priests until they killed James, and a few short years thereafter, Peter. But there was a transmission of the Gospel very readily into the extremes of the known world.

Disciples like Matthew who reached Ethiopia and regions of Africa, Thomas who reached India, and James  who reached Spain, not to mention it's said that Joseph of Arimathea entered the British Isles while Mary the Magdalene reached France.

This is very odd that so many people would lay down their livelihoods, and travel thousands of miles into regions they would enjoy no guarantee of support, where they would struggle to maintain a bare existence, and of whom so many would suffer death, for what they knew to be a fictitious narrative.

The real Jesus, if He was a fraud, was a very clever fraud, who managed to convince thousands of His  contemporaries that He had power of medical healings, and necessarily must have had a host of  co-conspirators.

Only conspirators don't go to their deaths without recanting. When the mystery of their iniquity has been laid out by their accusers, the only logical move is to fess up.

But the history shows that they did not, and millions went to their deaths refusing to denounce their Savior.

Think on those men and women going home, with the proofs of their healing carried with them, and that it  was through such-like conviction that they went to their deaths as martyrs.

In the cell of John the Baptist, inundated with the doubt of his mission, how he once powerfully proclaimed that he was "the Voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, Make his paths straight," John looks back on his life and his impending execution. Was it so? He sends two disciples to Jesus of Nazareth asking,

"Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?"

And Jesus answered and said unto them,

"Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them."

And John went to his death, proclaiming Jesus the Messiah, even in death, preparing the way of the Lord.

Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world!

  1. Paul-lovers claim that he was a man of GOD because he did miracles.
    My response to them is the magicians of Pharaoh also made snakes, blood, and frogs.
