The 37 miracles of Jesus which 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.
he Miracles of Jesus
During his earthly ministry, Jesus Christ touched and transformed countless lives. The four gospels record 37 miracles of Jesus. These accounts represent only a small number of the multitudes of people who were made whole by our Savior. The closing verse of John's Gospel explains:
"And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were recorded one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written." John 21:25
The 37 miracles of Jesus which 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
In the New Testament, three words refer to miracles:
THE FIRST MIRACLE:
When Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding feast at Cana, he performed his first "miraculous sign," as John called it. This miracle, showing Jesus' supernatural control over the elements like water, revealed his glory as the Son of God, and marked the beginning of his public ministry.
Below you will find a list of the miracles of Jesus depicted in the New Testament, along with corresponding Bible passages. 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. These signs and wonders demonstrated Christ's absolute power and authority over nature and his limitless compassion, proving that he was the promised Messiah.
As much as possible, these miracles of Jesus are presented in chronological order.
