    I think the term “spectacular supernatural” is my distinction from PoE: Red Sea Miracle II interview 🙂 It is good to distinguish between ‘naturalistic’ and ‘spectacular’ miracles. Faithful people understand that there are many acts of God that appear to be part of the natural course of events with explicable causes and effects. We rely on these ‘naturalistic’ interventions when we pray for divine help and guidance. When it comes to biblical stories, however, many expect that all acts of God must break with the laws of nature and be ‘spectacular’.
