The title Jesus of Nazareth appears many times in scripture, as in the following scriptures where Peter healed the man lame since birth;
"Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk" (Acts 3:6).
And later he testifies boldly to the jewish leaders the following scripture (which earned him a threat to never speak in the name of Christ again-which he promptly disobeyed)
"be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole" (Acts 4:10).
Do we all have the faith of Peter and the impotent man? Miracles can happen. And they bring us closer to the Christ spoken of in the first verse of the hymn below:
Jesus of Nazareth,
Savior and King!
Triumphant over death,
Life thou didst bring,
Leaving thy Father's throne,
On earth to live,
Thy work to do alone,
Thy life to give.
May we ever have faith in this Jesus of Nazareth, our Savior and King, and through whom the power of the priesthood has been restored to this earth in this latter day. As we have faith, miracles will follow those that believe.
May we ever have faith in him, is my prayer.
