Why Miracles?

The designed response

Jesus was constantly demonstrating His divine power over disease, demons, death, and nature.

Why?

Miracles were designed to bring glory to God. Many praised God for the wonders they witnessed (Luke 5:24-26; 18:43; 19:37; John 11:4).

Miracles were also intended to motivate people to repent, though many refused, even so (Matthew 11:20-24).

The most emphasized purpose of miracles was proving Jesus’ claims to be God’s Son (John 5:36; 10:25, 37-38; 14:11). Many who witnessed the miracles came to believe (John 2:11, 23; 11:41-45).

And our response?

How can we who did not see what they saw share their faith? By reading the credible eyewitness testimony recorded by the apostles (John 20:24-31).

Jesus said, “Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed” (John 20:29).
