Jesus' Miracles & Signs

(From Holy Scripture)


"[Since it is proper to God to work miracles by His own power, any single miracle worked by Christ by His own power is a sufficient proof that He is God." (St. Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church and "greatest theologian in the history of the Church")

Jesus performed numerous miracles and signs during His life on Earth. He possessed the power to heal physical and mental infirmities, cast out demons, multiply food, suspend nature, and raise the dead. Scripture tells us that Christ's signs were instrumental in securing the belief of His followers:

Jn. 2:11: Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs in Cana in Galilee and so revealed his glory, and his disciples began to believe in him.

Jn. 2:23: While he was in Jerusalem for the feast of Passover, many began to believe in his name when they saw the signs he was doing.

Christ himself said that:

"Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will not believe." (Jn. 4:48)

When Jesus encountered disbelief among some of the Jews, He also referred to His signs:

Jn. 10:25, 37-38: Jesus answered them, "I told you and you do not believe. The works I do in my Father's name testify to me... If I do not perform my Father's works, do not believe me; but if I perform them, even if you do not believe me, believe the works, so that you may realize (and understand) that the Father is in me and I am in the Father."

Clearly, the miracles performed by Christ - miracles possibly only to God - provide unmistakable proof of His Godhead. St. Thomas Aquinas states:

"The miracles which Christ worked were a sufficient proof of His Godhead in three respects. First, as to the very nature of the works, which surpassed the entire capability of created power, and therefore could not be done save by Divine power. For this reason the blind man, after his sight had been restored, said (Jn. 9:32,33): 'From the beginning of the world it has not been heard, that any man hath opened the eyes of one born blind. Unless this man were of God, he could not do anything.' Secondly, as to the way in which He worked miracles - namely, because He worked miracles as though of His own power, and not by praying, as others do. Wherefore it is written (Lk. 6:19) that 'virtue went out from Him and healed all.' Whereby it is proved, as Cyril says (Commentarium in Lucam) that 'He did not receive power from another, but, being God by nature, He showed His own power over the sick. And this is how He worked countless miracles.' Hence on Matthew 8:16: 'He cast out spirits with His word, and all that were sick He healed,' Chrysostom says: 'Mark how great a multitude of persons healed, the Evangelists pass quickly over, not mentioning one by one...but in one word traversing an unspeakable sea of miracles.' And thus it was shown that His power was co-equal with that of God the Father, according to John 5:19: 'What things soever' the Father 'doth, these the Son doth also in like manner'; and, again (John 5:21): 'As the Father raiseth up the dead and giveth life, so the Son also giveth life to whom He will.' Thirdly, from the very fact that He taught that He was God; for unless this were true it would not be confirmed by miracles worked by Divine power. Hence it was said (Mk. 1:27): 'What is this new doctrine? For with power He commandeth the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.'" (St. Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church and "greatest theologian in the history of the Church")

After His Resurrection, Christ promised that His followers would also perform miracles by the power of God:

Mk. 16:17-18: "These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages. They will pick up serpents (with their hands), and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

We can clearly see the truth of this statement in Scripture with the extraordinary miracles of St. Peter and St. Paul (e.g. Acts 5:15, Acts 19:11-12). Furthermore, a cursory review of the lives of the saints shows that Christ's words have been abundantly fulfilled throughout all ages of the Church. Despite this, however, one must remember that there is an infinite difference between miracles performed by Christ and miracles performed by Christ's followers. Remember that miracles worked by Jesus are accomplished by His own power, whereas miracles performed by His followers are accomplished not by their own power, but by the power of God. 

Also, one must be careful today to reject the Modernists attempt to downplay Christ's miracles and strip the Gospels of everything supernatural. Despite the fact that some moderns of today have difficulty believing things which they cannot explain, Christ's miracles were true, genuine miracles. They testify to our Lord's power and mission from God. They must not be put aside or questioned. As one Cardinal put it:

"Begging the pardon of the learned men of our age and their obsequious followers: not only did Christ work miracles, but He established the Faith upon the foundation of miracles." (Cardinal Pie)

And as the First Vatican Council states:

"If anyone says that all miracles are impossible, and that therefore all reports of them, even those contained in Sacred Scripture, are to be set aside as fables or myths; or that miracles can never be known with certainty, nor can the divine origin of the Christian religion be proved from them: let him be anathema." (First Vatican Council)

Remember that Jesus performed many miracles, yet all are not included in Holy Scripture as the following passages indicate: 

Jn. 20:30: "Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of (his) disciples that are not written in this book."

Jn. 21:25: "There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written."

Jesus Walking on WaterThe following is a brief sampling of various accounts of Jesus' miracles from the Gospels. Only Jesus' outward miracles through the time of His resurrection are included (note that events surrounding Jesus' birth, miraculous prophecies, reading of hearts, miracles attributed to the apostles, etc. are not included). Miracles which occurred after his resurrection, such as entering through a locked door, are also not included. Also, Eucharistic miracles and miracles mentioned indirectly (i.e. the image left on the shroud) are not included. Note that the accounts below may be abbreviated.

(The) People came out to see what had happened and, when they approached Jesus, they discovered the man from whom the demons had come out sitting at his feet.

And a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years, who (had spent her whole livelihood on doctors and) was unable to be cured by anyone, came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. Immediately her bleeding stopped... (Jesus) said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace." While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue official's house arrived and said, "Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer." On hearing this, Jesus answered him, "Do not be afraid; just have faith and she will be saved." And they ridiculed him, because they knew that she was dead. But he took her by the hand and called to her, "Child, arise!" Her breath returned and she immediately arose. He then directed that she should be given something to eat.

For a spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams and it convulses him until he foams at the mouth; it releases him only with difficulty, wearing him out. I begged your disciples to cast it out but they could not." Jesus said in reply, "O faithless and perverse generation, how long will I be with you and endure you? Bring your son here."

Then he told them, "Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter." So they took it. And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from (although the servers who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him, "Everyone serves good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the good wine until now."

Jesus said to him, "You may go; your son will live." The man believed what Jesus said to him and left. While he was on his way back, his slaves met him and told him that his boy would live. He asked them when he began to recover. They told him, "The fever left him yesterday, about one in the afternoon." The father realized that just at that time Jesus had said to him, "Your son will live," and he and his whole household came to believe.

  • JN 5-6, 8-9: One man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been ill for a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be well?"...

  • JN 6:5:-7, 12-13: When Jesus raised his eyes and saw that a large crowd was coming to him, he said to Philip, "Where can we buy enough food for them to eat?" He said this to test him, because he himself knew what he was going to do. Philip answered him, "Two hundred days' wages worth of food would not be enough for each of them to have a little (bit)." (Jesus miraculously multiplied the food and fed them all and) When they had had their fill, he said to his disciples, "Gather the fragments left over, so that nothing will be wasted."

Night is coming when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world." When he had said this, he spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva, and smeared the clay on his eyes, and said to him, "Go wash in the Pool of Siloam" (which means Sent). So he went and washed, and came back able to see.

  • JN 11:17, 25-26, 39-44: When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. Jesus told (Martha), "I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die... Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the dead man's sister, said to him, "Lord, by now there will be a stench; he has been dead for four days." Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?" So they took away the stone. And Jesus raised his eyes and said, "Father, I thank you for hearing me. I know that you always hear me; but because of the crowd here I have said this, that they may believe that you sent me." And when he had said this, he cried out in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" The dead man came out, tied hand and foot with burial bands, and his face was wrapped in a cloth. So Jesus said to them, "Untie him and let him go."

"For nothing will be impossible for God." (Lk. 1:37)
