What was the first miracle Jesus performed?
In an Extraordinary Way, Jesus miraculously turned water into fine wine: “(John 2:1-3) And on the third day a marriage feast took place in Caʹna of Galʹi·lee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the marriage feast. 3 When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him: “They have no wine.”
(John 2:9, 10) When the director of the feast tasted the water that had now been turned into wine, not knowing where it came from (although the servants who had drawn out the water knew), the director of the feast called the bridegroom 10 and said to him: “Everyone else puts out the fine wine first, and when people are intoxicated, the inferior. You have saved the fine wine until now.””
Jesus miracles helped tens of thousands of people
For example on just 2 of his miracles, feeding 5000 men and later 4000 men, included also women and children. Altogether maybe a total of over 27,000 people: “(Matthew 14:15-21) But when evening fell, his disciples came to him and said: “The place is isolated and the hour is already late; send the crowds away, so that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.” 16 However, Jesus said to them: “They do not have to leave; you give them something to eat.” 17 They said to him: “We have nothing here except five loaves and two fish.” 18 He said: “Bring them here to me.” 19 And he instructed the crowds to recline on the grass. Then he took the five loaves and two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said a blessing, and after breaking the loaves, he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 20 So they all ate and were satisfied, and they took up the leftover fragments, 12 baskets full. 21 Now those eating were about 5,000 men, as well as women and young children.
(Matthew 15:32-38) But Jesus called his disciples to him and said: “I feel pity for the crowd, because they have already stayed with me for three days and they have had nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, for they may give out on the road.” 33 However, the disciples said to him: “Where in this isolated place are we going to get enough bread to satisfy a crowd of this size?” 34 At this Jesus said to them: “How many loaves do you have?” They said: “Seven, and a few small fish.” 35 So after instructing the crowd to recline on the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish, and after offering thanks, he broke them and began giving them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37 And all ate and were satisfied, and they took up seven large baskets full of leftover fragments. 38 Now those eating were 4,000 men, as well as women and young children” .
And on both occasions, Jesus also healed many sick people : “(Matthew 14:14) When he came ashore, he saw a large crowd, and he felt pity for them, and he cured their sick ones.
(Matthew 15:30, 31) Then large crowds approached him, bringing along people who were lame, maimed, blind, speechless, and many others, and they laid them at his feet, and he cured them. 31 So the crowd felt amazement as they saw the speechless speaking and the maimed being made sound and the lame walking and the blind seeing, and they glorified the God of Israel.”
Miracles of Jesus Christ teach us lessons about Jesus and Jehovah God
This is because Jesus Christ perfectly reflected the thinking and the feelings of his heavenly father, Jehovah God: “(John 14:9) Jesus said to him: “Even after I have been with you men for such a long time, Philip, have you not come to know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father also. How is it you say, ‘Show us the Father’?”
The Miracles of Jesus show, that Jesus and Jehovah God love us
What moved Jesus to perform miracles? Find out: “(Matthew 20:30-34) And look! two blind men sitting beside the road heard that Jesus was passing by and cried out: “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 31 But the crowd rebuked them, telling them to keep silent; yet they cried all the louder, saying: “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 32 So Jesus stopped, called them, and said: “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 They said to him: “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” 34 Moved with pity , Jesus touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight, and they followed him.”
Did you noticed, that Jesus was moved with pity
And then Jesus healed the 2 blind man. The Greek word translated moved with pity refers to an intense compassion felt deep inside the body. This deep compassion is an expression of love.
The same deep compassion moved Jesus also to feed hungry people and to cure a leper:
“(Matthew 15:32) But Jesus called his disciples to him and said: “I feel pity for the crowd, because they have already stayed with me for three days and they have had nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, for they may give out on the road.”
(Mark 1:41) At that he was moved with pity, and he stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him: “I want to! Be made clean.””
Jehovah and Jesus have tender compassion for us:
“(Luke 1:78) because of the tender compassion of our God. With this compassion a daybreak will visit us from on high,”.
We can be sure, that Jehovah God and Jesus Christ deeply love us and are pained, when we suffer. Because of this we can feel encouraged to throw all our anxiety on Jehovah: “(1 Peter 5:7) while you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.”
Jesus will solve the root cause of mankind’s problems in the nearby future
God has given Jesus Christ the power to solve the problems of all mankind. For example the power to free mankind from the root cause of our problems: inherited sin from the first humans and its effects, sickness and death: “(Matthew 9:1-6) So boarding the boat, he traveled across and went into his own city. 2 And look! they were bringing him a paralyzed man lying on a stretcher. On seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic: “Take courage, child! Your sins are forgiven.” 3 Now certain scribes said to themselves: “This fellow is blaspheming.” 4 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said: “Why are you thinking wicked things in your hearts? 5 For instance, which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? 6 However, in order for you to know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins—” then he said to the paralytic: “Get up, pick up your stretcher, and go to your home.”
(Romans 5:12) That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, And so death spread to all men because they had all sinned—.
(Romans 5:18, 19) So, then, as through one trespass the result to men of all sorts was condemnation, so too through one act of justification the result to men of all sorts is their being declared righteous for life. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one person many will be made righteous.”
Jesus Miracles proved that he can resurrect the dead and…
… To cure “every sort of” sickness: “(Matthew 4:23) Then he went throughout the whole of Galʹi·lee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news of the Kingdom and curing every sort of disease and every sort of infirmity among the people.
(John 11:43, 44) When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Lazʹa·rus, come out!” 44 The man who had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Free him and let him go.””
Jesus could control violent windstorms
“(Mark 4:37-39) Now a great violent windstorm broke out, and the waves kept crashing into the boat, so that the boat was close to being swamped. 38 But he was in the stern, sleeping on the pillow. So they woke him up and said to him: “Teacher, do you not care that we are about to perish?” 39 With that he got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea: “Hush! Be quiet!” And the wind abated, and a great calm set in.”
Jesus could defeat wicked spirits
(Luke 8:2) as were certain women who had been cured of wicked spirits and sicknesses: Mary who was called Magʹda·lene, from whom seven demons had come out;
The Miracles of Jesus teach us something important about the Future
The miracles of Jesus teach us what he will do in the future. But on a much greater scale. For example the Bible show, that mankind soon will enjoy perfect health. Because Jesus will remove every disease and disability: “(Isaiah 33:24) And no resident will say: “I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error.
(Isaiah 35:5, 6) At that time the eyes of the blind will be opened, And the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. 6 At that time the lame will leap like the deer, And the tongue of the speechless will shout for joy. For waters will burst forth in the wilderness, And streams in the desert plain.
(Revelation 21:3, 4) With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.””
In the nearby future nobody will need to be hungry
Because the Bible promises: “(Isaiah 25:6) In this mountain Jehovah of armies will make for all the peoples A banquet of rich dishes, A banquet of fine wine, Of rich dishes filled with marrow, Of fine, filtered wine.”
In the nearby future mankind will be free of devastating effects of natural disasters
(Mark 4:41) But they felt an unusual fear, and they said to one another: “Who really is this? Even the wind and the sea obey him.”
In the nearby future dead loved ones will be resurrected to life
(John 5:28, 29) Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.
