     So he came again to Cana in Galilee, where he had made the water wine. And at Capernaum there was an official whose son was ill. When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went and begged him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. Jesus therefore said to him, ‘Unless you people see (ἴδητε) signs and wonders you will not believe (οὐ μὴ πιστεύσητε).’ The official said to him, ‘Sir, come down before my child dies.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go; your son will live.’ The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went his way. As he was going down, his servants met him and told him that his son was living. So he asked them the hour when he began to mend, and they said to him, ‘Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.’ The...

And the Lord God said to Noah, This is the sign of the covenant which I set between me and you, and between every living creature which is with you for perpetual generations. I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of covenant between me and the earth. And it shall be when I gather clouds upon the earth, that my rainbow shall be seen in the cloud. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you, and between every living soul in all flesh, and there shall no longer be water for a flood, so as to blot out all flesh.” (Gen 9: 12-15)

So, a “rainbow in a cloud” is a special “sign of covenant,” of a certain kind of agreement, understanding, or, simply put, “connection” that God has with us. Really there are countless “signs” in God’s created world, which point us t...

See to it that no one makes a prey of you through philosophy (διὰ τῆς φιλοσοφίας) and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fulness of deity dwells bodily, and you have come to fulness of life in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of flesh in the circumcision of Christ; and you were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.” (Col 2: 8-12)

The “philo-sophy” or “love of wisdom” talked about here is the human kind of “wisdom” that was not “according to Christ.” He, the God-Man, brought us Wisdom in...

“Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing him asked that he would show them a sign from heaven. He answered and said to them, ‘When it is evening you say, It will be fair weather, for the sky is red; and in the morning, It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening. Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.’ And he left them and departed.” (Mt 16: 1-4)

 

The Pharisees and Sadducees were usually in disagreement with one another, but they were unified in their opposition to Christ, because He did not act according to their arrogant and self-centered expectations. The Lord had al...
