A ministerial correspondent in The Congregationalist boldly faces the question of Jesus' miracles, i.e., works of healing. He seems to admit that the belief in Christian healing in the time of Jesus can only be properly supported by healing in the churches in the present age. His argument is as follows:—

"The editorial in The Congregationalist, June 8, discussing the question whether the church needs miracles, marks an epoch in The Congregationalist, . . . Ought it not to be reiterated that Christ is greater than his alleged miracles, greater than any specialized records, greater than any ancient history of him? Miracles no longer attest him to us, whatever they may have been to his own age. His personality did not appear merely in the gospel records. The records were a comparatively late result of his personal greatness. They neither add anything to him nor subtract anything from him.... We ought to leave the credibility of ancient miracles to be determined largely by the quality and power of modern achievements in his name.
