Are you curious about miracles? Do you wonder why Jesus performed them?

What qualifies as a miracle and why do some people seem to experience them, and others don’t?

Rabbi Jason Sobel – spiritual advisor to the hit TV series The Chosen – was raised in a Jewish home in New Jersey, USA, and has dedicated much of his life to finding truth.

After years of enquiry and study, he decided to become a Jewish follower of Jesus. Suddenly, all the traditions he grew up with took on new depth and meaning as ancient wisdom was combined with the teachings of Jesus, and he went on to found Fusion Global, an organisation that helps everyone find a new depth of faith by understanding links between “the old and the new”.

“It really changed my life”, Jason said.

“Learning to read the Bible [in the way] Jesus did, helps to see the Bible in high-definition.

“When you understand how the old and the new connect and how the details come together, it does make the Bible come alive in a new way.”

Rabbi Sobel’s book Signs and Secrets of the Messiah: A Fresh Look at the Miracles of Jesus re-examines Scripture, biblical culture and ancient texts to help readers better understand the intention behind God’s miracles.

“Miracles are meant to give us hope,” Jason said.

“They declare to us that our future is going to be better than our past.

“They declare to us that our future is going to be better than our past,” – Rabbi Jason Sobel

“What [Jesus] did through His miracles was bring hope, and healing and wholeness and that’s what God wants to do in our lives.

“We need to believe God for supernatural work in our lives in the midst of all the craziness that’s going on in the world.”
