A Lesson on Miracles
There are many miracles of Jesus recorded by the disciples throughout Scripture that show us the power of Jesus at work in our lives. Jesus performed thousands of miracles during His earthly ministry and the Gospels recorded at least 37 detailed miracles. The largest group of miracles mentioned in the New Testament involved cures. Matthew 4:24 tells us “They brought to [Jesus] all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics and he healed them.” Sick and broken people came to Jesus not only from Israel, but throughout the surrounding nations to be restored to new life. From healing the sick, to curing the blind, each miracle is associated with specific teachings that reflect the message of Jesus. Through these miracles, we are not only able to see that Jesus had the ability to heal and do wondrous things, but also how God is still at work in our lives today.
