Ordinary Christians as Miracle-Workers in the New Testament and the Second- and Third-Century Christian Apologists

Abstract [en]

This article analyzes the claim that “those who believe” will perform miraculous “signs” (Mark 16:17–18) in comparison with analogous early Christian apologists’ depictions of unnamed miracle workers.  The depiction of ordinary Christians as miracle workers in Mark 16:9–20 shares more in common with the later apologists than with most New Testament writings and apocryphal acts, which tend to associate miracles with one or more revered apostles (e.g., Peter or Paul).
