I have spent recent months studying the miracles as recorded in the four gospel accounts. The miracles of Jesus captured the attention of the masses. Jesus' ministry of miracles was a clear authentication of His claims to be God incarnate are in fact true (cf. John 3:2; 14:11). Since He can be verified that He is from God, we can also authenticate that His message is also true (cf. Mark 16:20). During Jesus' ministry of miracles, He touched the untouchables, He engaged with the outcasts, and He changed the lives of each person that encountered Hiim. The makes clear that "seeing they do not see" (Matt. 13:13). In other words, some observed the physical miracle ministry of Jesus, but they failed to understand what Jesus could do for them spiritually.
I have been working on a book called "Miracles: A Physical Sign with a Divine Purpose." I have identified 40 miracles within the gospel accounts. Through these brief snapshots of the miracles, it has been my desire to examine each miracle with a Gospel-centric lens: a lens that is focused on how each miracle shines on the glory of Jesus and the Gospel. The closer we look at the miracles the better we will understand the four themes of the Gospel: Creation, the Fall, Redemption, and Restoration. Below is my compiled list of 40 miracles (downloadable PDF file). I hope you too will study with a Gospel-centric lens.
He who has eyes, let him see!
