testimony to the character and dliine mission
of f lirM. WV know that He is a Teaiher come
from Cod, for no man rould do with miracles
as lie did. without Ood's help. The blind man,
1iom- ejus OirUt openid, did not need any
further pmof of Christ's tllilne power, or of Ills
di.ine mission. To the eritlcs o( Christ he said:
"Why, hetein is a iiianelous thing, that ye know
not from whence He is, and yet He hath opt in r
mine cjes." Jteiis said: "My woiks hear wit-ne-fi
ol Me." And St. l'etei, on the diy of
Pentecost, appealed to Christ's miracles in proof
of Ills ill. hip cliims. "Ye mm of l.racl,' ho
said, "hear thuc wonls: .lesus of N'arercth, a

and by wonders, ami signs, which Cod did by

that Christianity U the only tiue teligion. We
line stronger testimony on these point-i thin tint
which miracles furnish; hut lnltaclcs constitute

the evidence of miracles, we mint be careful not
to overestimate Ihcir evidential value. The
divine warning thai was so needful In Pihli.
