Did Jesus Perform Miracles

Yes, Jesus did perform miracles, which are documented throughout the New Testament. Here are a few significant examples from the ESV Bible:

  1. Jesus Raises Lazarus from the Dead: Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, demonstrating His power over death and confirming His identity as the Son of God (John 11:43-44) .
  2. Healing of a Woman and Jairus’s Daughter: Jesus healed a woman who had suffered from bleeding for twelve years with just a touch of His garment. He also raised Jairus’s daughter from the dead, showing His compassion and power over life and death (Luke 8:40-56) .
  3. Healing Two Blind Men: Jesus healed two blind men, affirming their faith and granting them sight, which showcased His mercy and authority to heal (Matthew 9:27-30) .
  4. Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes: Jesus fed five thousand men (plus women and children) with just five loaves of bread and two fish, highlighting His ability to provide and His kingship over creation (John 6:1-14) .
  5. Jesus Walks on Water: Demonstrating His lordship over the natural world, Jesus walked on water, calming the fears of His disciples and reinforcing their faith (John 6:16-21) .

Three Main Takeaways:

  • Jesus’ Authority Over Nature and the Supernatural: The miracles of Jesus, such as walking on water, calming storms, and multiplying food, demonstrate His authority over the natural world and the supernatural realm. This underscores His divinity and power as the Son of God.
  • Compassion and Healing: Many of Jesus’ miracles were acts of healing. By restoring health to the sick and life to the dead, Jesus showed God’s compassion for humanity. These acts of healing were signs of the coming of God’s kingdom, where suffering and death will be no more.
  • Faith and Belief: Jesus’ miracles were also signs meant to lead people to faith. Through these extraordinary acts, He revealed His identity as the Messiah and invited people to believe in Him for eternal life. The miracles are a call to trust in Jesus’ power and His message of salvation.
