The Importance of Miracles in Jesus’ Ministry

Well, back to some essays. The topic for English 2, Western Literature 1 was on the importance of miracles in Jesus’ early ministry.

Miracles are performed by Jesus throughout the four gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John. Jesus performed these miracles to prove His divine authority to the people. He healed the blind, lame, deaf, mute and lepers. Jesus showed His authority over demons by commanding them out of people. And He even gave life to dead people like in the account of Lazarus. These miracles are supernatural, where God worked against the created order in certain times. There are certain clusters of miracles through the Old and New Testaments, but by far most of the miracles recorded in the Bible were during the life and work of Jesus.

But the primary purpose Jesus ministry was to preach the gospel to the people of Israel. The miracles Jesus performed testified to the truth of the gospel He proclaimed. In Mark 1:36-38 Jesus says

And Simon and those who were with him searched for him(Jesus), and they found him and said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.” And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.”

In coming to preach the gospel of God, Jesus came as the messenger and the message. Without his atonement on the cross, there is no good news( which means “gospel”) to proclaim. And as this good news is proclaimed, it pushes back the kingdom of darkness and advances the kingdom of God.
