Miracles of Jesus


Miracles of Jesus



During his earthly ministry, Jesus Christ performed miracles by touching, healing, and transforming countless lives. Like other events in the life of Jesus, his miracles were documented by eyewitnesses. The four Gospels record 37 miracles of Jesus, with Mark’s Gospel recording the most.

These accounts represent only a small number of the multitudes of people who were made whole by the savior. The closing verse of John’s Gospel explains:

“Jesus did many other things as well.  If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.” (John 21:25, NIV)

The 37 miracles of Jesus Christ that were written down in the New Testament serve a specific purpose. None were performed randomly, for amusement, or for show. Each was accompanied by a message and either met a serious human need or confirmed Christ’s identity and authority as the Son of God. At times Jesus refused to perform miracles because they did not fall into one of these two categories:

When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had long desired to see him, because he had heard about him, and he was hoping to see some sign done by him. So he questioned him at some length, but he made no answer. (Luke 23:8–9, ESV)


New Testament’s Words for Miracles

In the New Testament, three words refer to miracles:

  • Power (dynamis), which means “mighty deed”
  • Sign (sēmeion), which refers to a miracle that figuratively represents something else, such as the kingdom of God
  • Wonder (teras), which indicates something extraordinary

Sometimes Jesus called on God the Father when performing miracles, and at other times he acted on his own authority, revealing both the Trinity and his own divinity.


The First Miracle of Jesus

When Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding feast at Cana, he performed his first “miraculous sign,” as the Gospel writer John, called it. This miracle, showing Jesus’ supernatural control over physical elements like water, revealed his glory as the Son of God and marked the beginning of his public ministry.

Some of Jesus’ most astonishing miracles included raising people from the dead, restoring sight to the blind, casting out demons, healing the sick, and walking on water. All of Christ’s miracles provided dramatic and clear evidence that he is the Son of God, validating his claim to the world.

These supernatural acts of love and power drew people to Jesus, revealed his divine nature, opened hearts to the message of salvation, and caused many to glorify God. They also demonstrated Christ’s absolute authority over nature and his limitless compassion. Altogether, they proved that he was, indeed, the promised Messiah.
