Angela’s Symposium, an informative YouTube channel I have shared at least twice before, published two videos on magic in the bible. One for the Old Testament and one for the New Testament. These were interesting, in light of what we learned around Samhain. (She always lists her sources for more research.)
She mentioned the miracles attributed to Jesus. While there are many theories about this, I have read elsewhere that traveling teachers would perform “miracles” to authenticate their messages. I will try to find the source for you on this and edit it in.
Edit: Zealot by Reza Aslan, Chapter 9, Page 128(in my edition)
I would love to read your thoughts on these videos.
