Would you still follow Jesus if He didn't do any physical miracles?

On the hypothetical that the Bible had no account of Jesus physically changing water into wine, materialising lots of bread, and walking and talking after he had died: then would you still consider yourself a Christian?
Imagine that you read the New Testament for the first time and there is the same account of Jesus preaching exactly the same things, but all the *physical* miraculous were absent. Would you still take his message to heart?
This is assuming that you still know about Jesus even though he didn’t have *physical* miracles as promotion.
Emphasis is on physical nature of the miracles, not their symbolism for ‘spiritual awakening’ etc.
Thanks.

  1. if you exclude the physical miracle of the resurrection, then no. since it is the crux of the salvation. there would be no reason to.. since we are all damned.

  2. I almost think that most of the devoted converts to Jesus weren’t converted through miracles but through his teaching. People listening were always stating that “He spoke not as a teacher of the law, but as one of authority.”
    So from that standpoint and the standpoint of him living an absolutely blameless life…I would venture to say there’s a good chance I’d still be following him.
    EDIT: Yeah…the resurrection miracle is kind of important…

  3. You can’t turn lead into gold. You can’t walk on water. You can’t feed a million people with one loaf of bread. You can’t turn people into salt. It’s all made up stories to control the minds and bodies of the uneducated masses.
    EDIT: Jesus was NOT a Muslim! Didn’t they call him “King of the Jews”??? Read your bibble !

  4. The physical miracles are of very little significance in my book. As mentioned previously by another, the resurrection is a deal breaker. If Jesus never rose, then as St. Paul said “your faith is in vain”.

  5. I think Jesus’ teachings are much more impressive than any physical miracle accounts, because I think his teachings have more power to change people than the accounts of the miracles do. I mean, I don’t believe in Jesus, but I have a lot of respect for him, because I think he was a good person who had a lot of good things to say. I think he’s one of the prime examples of a tolerant and good human being– I really like his teachings.

  6. OF COURSE I WOULD STILL FOLLOW JESUS BECAUSE I DO WHAT MY BIBLE TELLS ME . . . BUT YEAH I WOULD BE A LITTLE RELUCTANT
    BUT TO THE CHICK THAT SAYS THAT JESUS WAS MUSLIM
    1. IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER WHAT HE WAS
    2. YEAH HE WAS DEFINITELY BLACK (READ HIS DESCRIPTION IN THE BIBLE) BUT IF YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT JESUS WAS A JEW! DUH!

  7. .
    Still follow Jesus if He didn’t do any physical miracles ? Yes.
    There have been many valuing and precious “teachers” over time that performed no miracles yet were still worth “following” . . . Gandhi, Buddha, Dr. Martin Luther King, Philosophers, revered teachers, leaders, prophets, writers . . .
    Jesus shared and spoke of many Truths that the soul and heart can’t deny to be Truth. How could messages and teachings as that not be followed ?
    Peace to all on their journey.
