Miracles

I carry around pocket-size versions of the Gospel of John (from the Bible) when I'm out witnessing to people. And at the end of a witness encounter I always encourage people to read the Gospel of John. With this in mind, I'm in the process of (again) reading and studying the book of John right now.

There are 8 signs (miracles) performed by Jesus in the book of John that point to His deity. The John MacArthur Study Bible shows a small table listing the signs, where they can be found in the book of John, and the specific message they convey that tells us Jesus is God.

Here's that information for your consideration when you study the Gospel of John.

Turns water into wine (John 2: 1-12) --------Jesus is the source of life.
Heals a nobleman's son (Jn 4:46-54) -------- Jesus is master over distance.
Heals a lame man on Sabbath (Jn 5:1-17)----Jesus is master over time.
Feeds 5,000 (Jn 6:15-21) ---------- Jesus is the bread of life.
Walks on water, stills a storm (Jn 6:15-21) -------- Jesus is master over nature.
Heals a blind man from birth (Jn 9:1-41) ------- Jesus is the light of the world.
Raises Lazarus from the dead (Jn 11:17-45)------- Jesus has power over death.
Causes abundant catch of fish (Jn 21:6) -------Jesus is master over the animal world.
