This is a verse by verse study of the miracles of Jesus.

Different people see the miracles in different ways. To me, the miracles have symbolic meaning in addition to their natural meaning.

We’ve all heard about the miracles Jesus did – they are recorded in the gospels. When we ponder on them, we find them remarkable. After all, how many people in history have calmed the wind and the waves? How many have raised the dead? How many have healed every kind of sickness and disease? How many have cast out demons?

However, what else can we learn from those miracles besides their testimony that He was no ordinary man? Is there some practical application for us? Is there a message hidden among the different miracles?

Mt 9:35 Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.

Jn 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.

The Bible tells us that many miracles were done; of those, only a few were selected for illustration in more detail (Mt 9:35, Jn 21:25). Was the selection arbitrary, or was there some rational thought behind the selection? After a careful study, I don’t think that the selection was arbitrary – it seems to me that the selection was made to tell a story – a deeper story that has a spiritual application. Telling that story is what this book is all about.

A total of 37 miracles have details provided in the gospels.

Two miracles are recorded only in Mark; four only in Matthew; six only in Luke; six only in John. Most of the miracles recorded by John are not recorded in the other gospels.

Only one miracle (the feeding of the 5000 plus women and children) is recorded in all four gospels.

At least three miracles have differing (apparently contradictory) accounts.
