The Bible and the Paranormal
A New Perspective
by Patrick Cooke


Posted: 11:00 July 3, 2007

Witches, wizards, sorcery, evil and unclean spirits, devils, ghosts, demonic possession and exorcisms, conjuring up and raising the dead, divination, trances, astrology, oracles, enchantments, supernatural healing, super-human strength, giants, dragons, and unicorns are but a few of the many instances of paranormal phenomena found in the Bible. Some of the lesser known anomalies in scripture are: levitation, astral projection, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, telepathy, metamorphosis, glossalia, behemoths, satyrs, cockatrices, flying fiery serpents, and gigantic and terrifying, fire-breathing, smoke-snorting, stone-hearted, indestructible, amphibious sea monsters.

This research work is intended to provide evidence that not all of these paranormal anomalies are properly understood or, are completely misrepresented, by the church and mainstream thought. There has long been a gulf between the church's portrayal of these seemingly unnatural things and the beliefs of many others outside the sphere of dogmatic interpretation.

Levitation and Psychokinesis

Two events in scripture will change the perception of those who consider the Bible a radical religious work that labels all paranormal phenomena as pure evil. The first is a well-known "miracle" Jesus performed during a heavy storm. The scriptural narrative is quite adequate in portraying exactly what occurred:

"And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?" (Matthew 14:23-31)

Walking on water is obviously conquering the downward pull of gravitational forces on the body, which is commonly known as levitation. The most important aspect of this event is the fact that Peter was able to levitate, as well, but failed, when struck with fear of the storm. If this was a power projected by Jesus, would it have failed when Peter was in such a precarious position, floating over a stormy sea? This is not likely because he actually had power over the storm itself, as can be seen in this event:
