“ When we arrived at the inn by sundown, the innkeeper noticed that the sea was in a state of strongest excitement and that he in a distance of about 100 field lanes could see a ship, which at this terrible high swell would certainly sink. Should one try to assist such a ship in distress?
 I said: “Another yes, but not this one! The pre-midday wind has pushed it forward to where it is now; but another will drive it back again. This is the ship with those evils ones from Jerusalem, who are supposed to catch and kill Me. But now they are My prisoners and will remain so for another few days and nights, after which a wind will drive them to the coast behind Tiberias and release them from their torture. Thereupon they will leave for home quite sober and will not pursue Me any longer and try to take My life. See, the wind has already reached them and drives the ship away from these waters! But leave it at that; something completely different awaits us in the house! Let us thus go into our inn!”
 The innkeeper and all the others were full of curiosity about the new event awaiting us, and therefore we quickly entered the house. And see, the oldest daughter of the innkeeper was lying as good as dead on a bed and was wet allover. She had been going alone to the large fish container to collect some of the large noble fish for dinner; but she could not master the large and strong animals and was thrown into the deep water by one of the twitching fish. Upon her screams many rescuers immediately came to help her; but with all the best efforts possible they were not able to get her quickly enough out of the water and the result was that she was lifted out of the water without any signs of life. That this caused a great dismay in the whole house and that immediately a doctor from the city was called who also came immediately and did everything to call the drowned back to life, does hardly requires to be mentioned. But despite all the crying of the mother and the other siblings and despite all the endeavors of the doctor, the drowned nevertheless did not showed any sign of life.
“ I say: “Go, and lead both of them to Me!” Shabbi goes and brings both of them to Me.
 But I ask them whether they would wish to become fully healthy and strong again.
 Both say, “Yes, Lord, if this is possible! But the strange poison has made me quite paralyzed in all my limbs, and I can only move myself forwards with great effort; and look at this poor, withered flower of a wife – she is ruined in her body for all her life! Oh, Jehovah, why did such a terrible thing have to happen to us?!”
 I say: “But I want you to be as healthy and cheerful and look as you did when you got married!”
 When I had said this, something like a flame rushed through both of them, and they were immediately as healthy and strong as if nothing had ever been wrong with them, and their bodies looked the same and even more so than on their wedding day. They were extremely amazed, for such a thing had never been experienced before in Persia.
 Shabbi also begins to raise his eyebrows more and more, and almost cannot believe his senses; but Jurah nudges him and says to him somewhat secretly, “Hey, I think that we are in exactly the right place, and we cannot be too far from the person that you are trying so carefully to deny! I tell you, it is He – or in all eternity no-one else! Now judge according to your senses!”
“ FOLLOWING these words Borus and Kisjonah immediately climbed into the tomb and tried to lift the coffin but they were unable to move it, for it was extremely heavy having been made from solid cedar-wood with, in addition, a lot of heavy ornaments of iron, gold and silver. After repeated efforts Borus said: “Lord, the coffin is too heavy, we cannot master it at all. As far as I know this coffin was lowered with the help of machines and by natural means it will only be possible to lift it out again with machines.”
 Say I: “Then come out of the tomb. The two youths who are here shall lift it out!” – Borus and Kisjonah now quickly climb from the tomb and the two youths lift the coffin promptly and with such ease as if they were handling down feather.
 Bab, his wife and children open their eyes in surprise and he says, amazed at the strength of the two youths: “But what unbelievable power and strength they possess. These two tender boys, none of whom can be more than fifteen years old, played – like a big wind with a down feather – with this weight which had resisted the strength of two strong men. Ah, such a thing has never been heard of.”
 Say I: “Never mind, for you will now witness much greater things. But all of you remember this: You must not tell anyone of this, not even My disciples. For their time has not come for a long time yet, but once the time has come, they will get to know everything anyway. But now open the coffin so that we may see how far the boy is already decomposed.”
 The coffin was immediately opened and the boy who was completely decomposed except for the bigger bones was by the skilled hands of Borus freed from all the shrouds and swathes for all to inspect. The miserable looking skeleton was viewed by all with visible shuddering.
 And Faustus said: “Ecce homo! Look, that is a man, too. What fine lot for the voluptuous flesh of mankind. A horrible looking skull still covered with some stuck together hairs; a shrunk greenish-brown breast-skin, here and there broken by some half-decayed ribs, the black spine over which there are still hanging some traces of decayed intestine covered with mildew. Finally the feet – how horrible they look, full of decay and mildew. And our noses also feel that we are not in the shop of a balsam merchant, for the stench is worse than I would have expected. No, this is a form well suited to make a man’s existence as contemptible as possible, for in the end everyone of us has to expect this lot. This is the reason why I by far prefer cremation of the bodies to burial.”
Mark 5:21–43, Matthew 9:18–26, Luke 8:40–56
“BUT while I was yet telling the disciples about this woman, the principal’s domestics came running almost breathless, to bring him the sad news of his daughter’s death.
 The principal became grief stricken, saying to Me: ‘Dear Master, since it is grievously too late for me now for helping my daughter, who was my everything, do not further trouble yourself.’
 After these words he started sobbing loudly. He had much loved his daughter, who was very shapely and well-bred, with the build of a 20 year old and was also this principal’s only child.
 After hearing his domestics and then the exceedingly grieving principal himself, with whom My heart commiserated, I said to him: ‘Fear not, friend, but believe. Your daughter has not died but only fallen asleep and I shall awaken her.’
 On hearing Me thus, the principal began to breathe more easily.
 When we were still some thousand paces from the principal’s house, I said to the crowd, as well as to those disciples still of a more feeble faith, to all wait here. And only Peter, Jacob and his brother and John were allowed to come, for on their faith one could already build houses.
 Arriving at the house with the school-principal, there was a great turmoil there and much weeping and wailing in accordance with Jewish tradition, with mourning hymns sung.
 Entering the room where the deceased lay on an adorned bed, I said to the many commotionists: ‘What are you carrying on and wailing for? The little daughter has not died but only sleeps.’
"12. Say I, ‘Yes, what may appear to you ever so impossible is, between you and I, exceedingly easy for Me! This you cannot of course grasp yet, but there shall come a time when you will comprehend all this.
13. But so that you may see that through the might of the Father in Me I can instantly reach up to the sun, watch! I shall now cover up the sun for two moments, so that no eye upon the earth shall see it, from which it shall be clear to you that I can reach the sun even from this earth!’
14. Says Matthew, ‘O Lord, do not do so, or men shall perish for grief!’ - Say I, ‘Be not troubled! Men will think it an ordinary eclipse, which at times occurs in the ordinary course of things - and in a few moments they have their sun back. Watch now! - Matthew says with some trepidation, ‘Lord, should not all those present here be made aware of it?’ Say I, ‘Let them sleep and rest; it is enough that you should experience it; because a scribe has to know more than those not yet called for such! - And behold, I now say, Sun, hide your face from the entire earth for seven moments! - At that moment it gets pitch-dark; only some of the brighter stars feebly appear!
15. Matthew trembles for fear and says, ‘Lord, you almighty! Who may abide beside you if your divine arm can reach such endless distance in a moment?! - Matthew hardly finishing those few words, the sun already is shining in its full brilliance again, and My Matthew breathes more freely again, - but cannot utter a word for amazement. Only after a good while he gathers up courage to say, ‘No, Lord, this I cannot take in. Your might must be limitless. But in future please spare us such terrible proof of Your might, O Lord, because the whole earth could shortly die and perish therewith!’" (GGJ I, chap. 84)
