Jesus Birth & Miracles

JESUS THE BIRTH & MIRACLES

PICTURE 01
At the village of Nazareth in Israel, there lived a young girl called Mary who was a virgin. Mary was engaged to be married to a carpenter named Joseph.
PICTURE 02
One day an angel appeared, “Mary, you will give birth to God’s Son and His name shall be Jesus, the Saviour.”
PICTURE 03
Mary’s relative Elizabeth was also pregnant. Her child would become known as John the Baptist.
PICTURE 04
Joseph and Mary left Nazareth.
PICTURE 05
They walked 60 miles to register for the Roman census.
PICTURE 06
Eventually they arrived in Bethlehem.
PICTURE 07
But they couldn’t find any accommodation.
PICTURE 08
All that was offered to Joseph was a stable.
PICTURE 09
So it came to pass, that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born in a stable.
PICTURE 10
Nearby shepherds were in the fields watching their flocks.
PICTURE 11
Suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds and announced.
PICTURE 12
“This day in the city of David a Saviour, the Christ, is born.”
PICTURE 13
Then a great crowd from heaven appeared praising God.
PICTURE 14
Later the shepherds ran to Bethlehem to see this miracle.
PICTURE 15
They found Mary and Joseph with the baby in the stable.
PICTURE 16
Also wise men from the east followed a star to see the new King.
PICTURE 17
When the wise men arrived at Jerusalem, they were directed to king Herod’s palace.
PICTURE 18
When Herod heard of a newly born Baby King, he was troubled.
PICTURE 19
The priests told Herod that the King would be born in Bethlehem.
PICTURE 20
So the wise men followed the star, until it stopped over where the young Child was.
PICTURE 21
They worshipped the Child with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
PICTURE 22
The wise men took a different route home after being warned in a dream.
PICTURE 23
Joseph and Mary took the baby to Jerusalem.
PICTURE 24
The baby was taken to the temple to be named, and sacrifices were offered, as was the custom.
PICTURE 25
God had told a man called Simeon, that he would not die until he had seen the Messiah. Simeon said, “Lord, my eyes have seen your salvation.”
PICTURE 26
When Jesus was only twelve years old, He astonished the learned, religious teachers at the temple, with His understanding of the scriptures.
PICTURE 27
After Jesus was baptised by His cousin John the Baptist.
PICTURE 28
He recruited 12 disciples, then at 30 years of age he did His first miracle at a family wedding.
PICTURE 29
His mother came to Jesus saying, “They have no wine left!”
PICTURE 30
Mary told the servants, “Whatever He tells you to do, do it.” Then Jesus said;
PICTURE 31
 “Fill each one of these pots with water and take some to the master.”
PICTURE 32
The water had become wine. Amazed the master asked;
PICTURE 33
 “Why have you saved the best until last.”
PICTURE 34
Another time four men believed that Jesus would heal their crippled friend.
PICTURE 35
The house was full of people so they lowered their friend through the roof.
PICTURE 36
Jesus said to the cripple, “Son be of good cheer, your sins are forgiven.”
PICTURE 37
The religious leaders thought to themselves, ‘Who can forgive sins but God alone.’ Jesus asked:-
PICTURE 38
 “Which is hardest, for me to say your sins are forgiven, or to heal the cripple.” Then Jesus turned to the man saying;
PICTURE 39
 “Stand up, pick up your bed, and go home.”
PICTURE 40
The crippled man got up and walked. The people were amazed and glorified God.
PICTURE 41
Another time a leper fell to his knees and worshipped Jesus saying, “Lord, if you are willing heal me.”
PICTURE 42
Jesus touched the man and said, “I am willing. Be healed.”
PICTURE 43
Immediately the leprosy vanished! Jesus said to the man;
PICTURE 44
 “Tell no one about this, but show yourself to the priest and offer a sacrifice.”
PICTURE 45
So the man went off rejoicing.
PICTURE 46
But instead of keeping quiet, the man told everyone.
PICTURE 47
Another time there was an important royal official whose son was very ill.
PICTURE 48
When the man found Jesus he said, “Will you please come and heal my son, or he will die?” Jesus responded;
PICTURE 49
 “Unless you see signs and wonders, you will not believe.” The official pleaded;
PICTURE 50
“Sir, please come before my son dies.” Jesus answered;
PICTURE 51
 “Go home your son lives.”
PICTURE 52
On his way home, the man was met by his servants who said, “Your son has been healed!”
PICTURE 53
One evening Jesus said to His disciples, “Let’s sail to the other side of the lake.”
PICTURE 54
As they left other small ships followed.
PICTURE 55
Suddenly, a mighty storm arose. Jesus was sleeping so they woke Him;
PICTURE 56
 “Master! Master! We’re going to drown!”
PICTURE 57
Jesus stood up and spoke to the wind and sea.
PICTURE 58
 “Peace, be still.” And immediately there was a great calm.
PICTURE 59
Wherever Jesus went  great crowds always followed Him. One day on a mountain Jesus asked;
PICTURE 60
“Where can we buy enough bread, for all of these people to eat?” One of the disciples replied;
PICTURE 61
 “A years salary couldn’t feed this crowd.” Then another said;
PICTURE 62
 “This lad has five loaves and two fish?” Jesus responded;
PICTURE 63
 “Get the people to sit down.”
PICTURE 64
Then Jesus gave thanks to His Father. After every person had eaten Jesus said;
PICTURE 65
 “Gather up all that is left over, so that nothing is wasted.”
PICTURE 66
And there were twelve baskets full of bread and fish.
PICTURE 67
Because the people wanted to make Jesus their king, He went alone to pray.
PICTURE 68
One day as Jesus and His disciples came out of the city, blind Bartimaeus was begging, Bartimaeus shouted;
PICTURE 69
“Jesus have mercy on me, Jesus have mercy on me.”
PICTURE 70
 “Bring that man to me.” Said Jesus;
PICTURE 71
 “What can I do for you?” Bartimaeus answered;
PICTURE 72
 “Lord, that I might receive my sight.” Jesus replied;
PICTURE 73
 “Go your way. Your faith has made you whole.” And immediately Bartimaeus could see.
PICTURE 74
One day Jesus told his students, “Lazarus is dead and I am glad that I wasn’t there to heal him, so that you may believe.” One of Lazarus’s sisters said;
PICTURE 75
 “Lord if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” Jesus replied;
PICTURE  76
 “Your brother will live I am the resurrection and the life.” Lazarus’s other sister cried;
PICTURE 77
 “Lord, if you would have been here, my brother would not have died.” Jesus also wept.
PICTURE 78
Some of the people argued, “If He can make the blind see, couldn’t He save His friend from dying?” Jesus said;
PICTURE 79
 “Take away the stone and you will see the glory of God.” Then Jesus cried out, “Lazarus come forth!”
PICTURE 80
And Lazarus rose from the grave.
PICTURE 81
So it was that the people saw the glory of God.
PICTURE 82
One day Jesus came to a fig  tree to eat, but He found only leaves on the tree. So Jesus said;
PICTURE  83
 “From this time on, let no fruit grow on this tree!” Amazed, the students said to Jesus;
PICTURE 84
 “Look how quickly the fig tree has withered!” Jesus replied;
PICTURE 85
 “If only you will believe and not doubt, whatever you ask in prayer believing, you will receive.”
