Down But Not Done

This passage from Acts 20:7-12 recounts a significant event where Paul's lengthy sermon led to an unexpected miracle. A young man named Eutychus, dozing off during the sermon, fell from a third-story window but was miraculously revived by Paul. The sermon then transitions to historical beliefs about the Messiah's expected miracles, emphasizing the four specific kinds of miracles the Rabbis taught only the Messiah could perform. The sermon underlines how these expectations were surpassed through real-life testimonies of miraculous healings and resurrections, demonstrating the extraordinary nature of Jesus' ministry.
