So the questions that will be examined in this paper include the following. Does God manifest His power in any way other than salvation, either through miracles to bring people to salvation or to bless those who are already saved? What is the purpose of God showing His power? What is the connection between God's power and faith and between His power and His righteousness? And finally, how does a biblical theology of God's power give an answer to those who demythologize His power into a social program? These and other questions are very much on the minds of Christians as thev search for l::.,.- .,.biblical answers to apply to their own lives; As these questions are answered throughout this paper, they will be answered in reference to these two continuums mentioned above in order to how the believer should live in the middle of the first continuum and that the second continuum, by virtue of the first being correct, is ruled out completely.

The primary task of this paper is to gain an accurate biblical theology of God's power.
