To reject the historicity of the Gospels a priori because they contain miracles violates logical and historical standards of reasoning. Since the Gospels are well established historically, the miracle stories they convey deserve serious historical consideration. The only way to know whether there is credibility to a miraculous claim is to investigate it. The cutting edge of science exploration has revealed a universe in which miracles are possible. To reject miracles based on a precommitment to the naturalistic worldview is to engage in circular reasoning.
