Jesus Miracles – What is a Miracle?
What is a miracle? A miracle is:

  1. any amazing or wonderful occurrence,
  2. a marvelous event manifesting a supernatural act of God.
Jesus’ miracles are of great significance. All the miracles He did were to prove that He was indeed who He said He was -- God. The miracles also prove that Jesus has complete control of creation.
