Dear Doubting Thomas, I heard that you want to be a Christian, but you do not believe in some of the Old Testament miracles. You said you like logic and science, and I respect that. I do too! We have something in common. However, I believe God created man and woman in the Garden of Eden, that Noah really survived a terrible flood aboard an ark, and that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. One reason I believe in these fantastic tales is because Jesus believed in them! Jesus was quoted as he talked about each of these miracles. If Jesus believes in them, we can too. It was good chatting with you. Take care of yourself. Sincerely, Your Friend in Christ
P.S. Here is what Jesus said:
- [Jesus said] “….But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’….” (Mark 10:6, ESV)
- [Jesus said] “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.…” (Luke 17:26-27, ESV)
- [Jesus said] “…for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth…” (Matthew 12:40, ESV)
