A miracle is:
An act of God helping us, saving us, keeping us from danger,
can prove God's existence or confirm beliefs (teacher's
meaning)
When the impossible happens, or when something turns out a

Jesus turning water into wine
A person who was seriously ill recovering or someone being
brought back to life
Feeding the 5,000 with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish

action at the crusades led my Benny Hinn and Reinhard Bonke.
Some people may disagree with this statement because
they interpret a miracle differently. Many people think that a
miracle is something which defies nature and we know that a
human wouldn't be able to perform something like this therefore

Hume dismissed the claim of a miracles from any
country not considered educated or civilised. When Hume
was alive, this meant that only miracles in Europe (and not
