Finger of God

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
A picturesque expression of God at work. The finger of God writing the Ten Commandments illustrated God's giving the law without any mediation (Exodus 31:18 ; Deuteronomy 9:10 ). Elsewhere the finger of God suggests God's power to bring plagues on Egypt (Exodus 8:19 ) and in making the heavens (Psalm 8:3 ). Jesus' statement “If I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you” (Luke 11:20 ) means that since Jesus cast out demons by the power of God, God's rule had become a reality among His hearers.
