Miracles Of Jesus Christ

Miracles of Jesus ChristJesus began his public ministry of preaching, teaching and healing some time after he was baptized by John the Baptist. According to the Bible, Jesus performed various miracles in the course of his ministry. These ranged from cures to exorcisms, with several others that show a dominion over nature. Some of the miracles performed by Jesus Christ include:

Changes water to wine: In his first recorded miracle, which took place at Cana in the Galilee area, Jesus changes water at a wedding into wine after the host's wine ran out unexpectedly.

Cures the centurion's servant: In another miracle, Jesus heals the servant of a centurion at Capernaum without any contact with the ill man.

Heals the paralytic at the pool: At the pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem, Jesus heals a man who had been unable to walk for 38 years.

Reverses the draught of fish: After a fruitless night of fishing on the Sea of Galilee, Peter receives a command from Jesus to lower his nets again. This time so many fish are caught that Peter's nets begin to break.

Calms the storm: Jesus calms a storm on the Sea of Galilee with a wave of his hand--a storm of such an intensity that it terrifies his crew of experienced sailors.

Heals the woman who touched him: A simple touch of Jesus' garment was enough to heal this woman.

Raises Jairus's dead daughter back to life: Jesus demonstrates that he has the power to raise the dead back to life.

Feeds crowd of five thousand: In one of the most spectacular miracles, Jesus feeds a massive crowd of 5,000 people with just five loaves of bread and two small fish. And there is enough food left over at the end to fill 12 baskets!

Walks on the lake and stills the storm: Jesus is seen walking on the surface of the Sea of Galilee! One of his disciples, caught in a moment of pure faith, begins walking on the water towards Jesus. Moments later he starts to doubt, plunges down into the water, and is pulled to safety by Jesus.

Feeds four thousand: In another miraculous example of God's power, Jesus takes compassion on a large, famished crowd of followers who hadn't eaten in roughly three days. He feeds them with seven loaves of bread and a few small fish. Seven baskets of food are left over after everyone is full.

Heals ten lepers: Ten lepers are healed. Yet only one has enough humility to return to Jesus and thank him for the miraculous healing of his illness.

Raises Lazarus from the dead: In a spectacular miracle which creates a stir throughout the country, Jesus brings back to life a man who had not only died, but had been laying in a tomb for several days. Many of the religious leaders now begin to follow Jesus after this demonstration of the power of a living God.

Jesus is himself resurrected from the dead: In the greatest miracle of all, Jesus is raised from the dead, just as he had foretold on numerous occassions.

The final miraculous catch of fish: After his resurrection, Jesus performs one more miracle. His disciples immediately identify who is responsible for this sudden abundance of fish stocks in the Sea of Galilee. It is the resurrected Jesus of Nazareth.
