"There are also, in fact, many other things that Jesus did, which if ever they were written in full detail, I suppose the world itself could not contain the scrolls written" (John 21:25)
The healings made by Jesus Christ and the apostles were "recreations"
The diseases and disabilities, whether viral, bacterial or connected to accidents of life, can leave irreversible consequences on the human body: a dry hand, probably a hereditary or genetic deformation (Luke 6:6-11),
blindness, by accident or by heredity (Matthew 9:27-31; Luke 18:35-42), deafness and impairment of the motor skills of speech (Mark 7:31-37), leprosy , a disease caused by a bacillus (Mycobacterium leprae) that causes damage to the peripheral nervous system,
skin and various parts of the body (Mark 1:40-42; Luke 17:11-19). All of these miraculous healings, and many more (John 21:25), required even partial "re-creation" of the part of the human body affected by the disease or its physical after-effects.
The resurrection of Lazarus, the friend of Jesus Christ, was particularly spectacular and required a significant partial recreation of his body for it, to come back to life (John 11:30-44). It
is written that Lazarus had been dead for four days. When Jesus Christ asked for the tomb to be opened, Martha, the deceased's sister, objected: "Lord, by now he must smell, for it is four days", which shows that Lazarus' body was beginning to decompose. The
resurrection of Lazarus was a partial recreation of his human body (palingénesia (in Greek) (Matthew 19:28)). It is therefore evident that these miraculous healings by "re-creation", in our days, do not exist in Christian congregations.
The simplicity and realism of the narrative of the miracles
crowds approached him, having along with them people that were lame, maimed, blind, dumb, and many otherwise, and they fairly threw them at his feet, and he cured them; so that the crowd felt amazement as they saw the dumb speaking and the lame walking and
the blind seeing, and they glorified the God of Israel"
As you read the narratives of miraculous healings in the Bible, they are often simple and concise. Sometimes they seem to indicate
that Jesus Christ was taking into account the feelings of the people he was going to heal. Jesus Christ had great insight of what his interlocutors thought (Matthew 9:2-8; Luke 5:17-26 "And Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said: “Why are you thinking wicked
things in your hearts?""). What was true for them was also true for some of the ill people he was going to heal. For example regarding the healing of a blind man from birth, in John chapter 9:1-7, Jesus Christ coated the eyes of the blind with clay which
he moistened with his saliva, and commanded him, without going with him, to go and wash their eyes at the pool of Siloam. On the other hand, the gospel account of Mark 8:22-25, for the healing of another blind man, it is written that the people of a village,
bring a blind man to him. Jesus Christ, taking him by the hand, leads him outside the village. He does a gradual, two-step healing process to gradually restore his sight, with the purpose that the blind person, probably, does not have too much emotional shock.
Another account of the healing of a deaf and dumb is very touching: "Now coming back out of the regions of Tyre he went through Siʹdon to the sea of Galʹi·lee up through the midst of the
regions of De·capʹo·lis. Here they brought him a man deaf and with a speech impediment, and they entreated him to lay his hand upon him. And he took him away from the crowd privately and put his fingers into the man’s ears and, after spitting,
he touched his tongue. And with a look up into heaven he sighed deeply and said to him: “Ephʹpha·tha,” that is, “Be opened.” Well, his hearing powers were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he began speaking
normally. With that he charged them not to tell anyone; but the more he would charge them, that much more they would proclaim it. Indeed, they were being astounded in a most extraordinary way and they said: “He has done all things well. He even makes
the deaf hear and the speechless speak”" (Mark 7:31-37).
The fact that Jesus Christ is leading this man out of the crowd, shows that he is understanding that maybe, he is afraid
of the uproar of people, excited to find out if he will heal him. This deaf and dumb man is imprisoned in an absolute inner silence. The crowd introduces him to Jesus, whom he is not supposed to know and what he will do with him. Thus, the description of the
gestures of his healing, is perhaps a way that Jesus Christ has, of making this man understand what he is doing: that is to say, to heal him ("he put his fingers into the man’s ears"), with the help of God ("look up into heaven").
The only narratives of miracles where there are loud voices, cries and convulsions, is when Jesus Christ confronts demons who took possession of human beings. Sometimes causing them to have epileptic seizures very violent
(which does not mean that epilepsy is an illness connected with demonism. The gospel account describes epilepsy as one of the consequences of possession, which can have others, such as unusually human strength or gifts of divination) (Matthew 8:28-34; 17:14-20;
Luke 4:31-37). However, most Bible accounts of miracles are simple and concise.
The gifts of miraculous healings were divine accreditation that the person or group
of people had the approval of God and the Holy Spirit
"Rabbi, we know that you as a teacher have come from God; for no one can perform these signs that
you perform unless God is with him"
It was an honest and
sincere teacher of the Law, named Nicodemus, who said these words. Likewise, when the apostles performed such signs, there was no doubt, to the observers, that they had the holy spirit: "Moreover, through the hands of the apostles many signs and portents continued
to occur among the people; and they were all with one accord in Solʹo·mon’s colonnade" (Acts 5:12-16). However, some Pharisees, in the presence of Christ, went so far as to dispute this evidence. Let us read the response of Christ to them:
"Then they brought him a demon-possessed man, blind and dumb; and he cured him, so that the dumb man spoke and saw. Well, all the crowds were simply carried away and began to say: “May this
not perhaps be the Son of David?” At hearing this, the Pharisees said: “This fellow does not expel the demons except by means of Be·elʹze·bub, the ruler of the demons.” Knowing their thoughts, he said to them: “Every kingdom
divided against itself comes to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. In the same way, if Satan expels Satan, he has become divided against himself; how, then, will his kingdom stand? Moreover, if I expel the demons by
means of Be·elʹze·bub, by means of whom do your sons expel them? This is why they will be judges of you. But if it is by means of God’s spirit that I expel the demons, the kingdom of God has really overtaken you. Or how can anyone invade
the house of a strong man and seize his movable goods, unless first he binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. He that is not on my side is against me, and he that does not gather with me scatters" (Matthew 12:22-30).
Logically, Jesus Christ turned this gratuitous accusation of the Pharisees against them with this simple question: "Moreover, if I expel the demons by means of Be·elʹze·bub, by means of whom do your sons
expel them?". However, Jesus Christ did not consider this accusation harmless at all, quite the contrary. He sent them this warning to be taken very seriously; be careful not to sin against the holy spirit: "On this account I say to you, Every sort of sin
and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven. For example, whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the holy spirit, it will not be forgiven him, no,
not in this system of things nor in that to come" (Matthew 12:31,32).
Jesus Christ and the first miracle written in the Gospel of John, he turns water into wine: "And
on the third day a marriage feast took place in Caʹna of Galʹi·lee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the marriage feast. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him: “They have
no wine.” But Jesus said to her: “Woman, why is that of concern to me and to you? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to those serving: “Do whatever he tells you.” Now there were six stone water jars sitting there as required
by the purification rules of the Jews, each able to hold two or three liquid measures. Jesus said to them: “Fill the jars with water.” So they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them: “Now draw some out and take it to the director of
the feast.” So they took it. 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
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 did this in Caʹna of Galʹi·lee as the beginning of his signs, and he made his glory
manifest, and his disciples put their faith in him" (John 2:1-11).
Jesus Christ heals the son of a royal official: "Then he came again to Caʹna of Galʹi·lee,
where he had turned the water into wine. Now there was a royal official whose son was sick in Ca·perʹna·um. When this man heard that Jesus had come out of Ju·deʹa into Galʹi·lee, he went to him and asked him to come down and
heal his son, for he was at the point of dying. But Jesus said to him: “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will never believe.” The royal official said to him: “Lord, come down before my young child dies.” Jesus said to him:
“Go your way; your son lives.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he left. 51 But while he was on his way down, his slaves met him to say that his boy was alive. So he asked them at what hour he got better. They replied
to him: “The fever left him yesterday at the seventh hour.” The father then knew that it was in the very hour that Jesus had said to him: “Your son lives.” So he and his whole household believed. This was the second sign
Jesus performed when he came from Ju·deʹa into Galʹi·lee" (John 4:46-54).
Jesus Christ heals a man possessed by a demon in Capernaum: "He then went down
to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the Sabbath, and they were astounded at his way of teaching, because he spoke with authority. Now in the synagogue there was a man with a spirit, an unclean demon, and he shouted with a loud
voice: “Ah! What have we to do with you, Jesus the Naz·a·reneʹ?Did you come to destroy us? I know exactly who you are, the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked it, saying: “Be silent, and come out of him.” So after
throwing the man down in their midst, the demon came out of him without hurting him. At this they were all astonished and began to say to one another: “What kind of speech is this? For with authority and power he orders the unclean spirits, and
out they come!” So the news about him kept spreading into every corner of the surrounding country" (Luke 4:31-37).
Jesus Christ casts out demons among the Gadarenes
(present-day Jordania, eastern part of the Jordan river, near the Lake Tiberias): "When he came to the other side into the region of the Gad·a·renesʹ, two demon-possessed men coming out from among the tombs met him. They were unusually fierce,
so nobody had the courage to pass by on that road. And look! they screamed, saying: “What have we to do with you, Son of God? Did you come here to torment us before the appointed time?” A long way off from them, a herd of many swine was feeding.
So the demons began to plead with him, saying: “If you expel us, send us into the herd of swine.” And he said to them: “Go!” With that they came out and went off into the swine, and look! the entire herd rushed over the precipice into
the sea and died in the waters. But the herders fled, and going into the city, they reported everything, including the account of the demon-possessed men. And look! all the city turned out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, they urged him to depart from
their region" (Matthew 8:28-34).
Jesus Christ heals the mother-in-law of the Apostle Peter: "And Jesus, on coming into Peter’s house, saw his mother-in-law lying
down and sick with fever. So he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she got up and began ministering to him" (Matthew 8:14,15).
Jesus Christ heals a man with paralyzed
right hand: "On another sabbath he entered the synagogue and began teaching. And a man was there whose right hand was withered. The scribes and the Pharisees were now watching Jesus closely to see whether he would cure on the Sabbath, in order to
find some way to accuse him. He, however, knew their reasoning, so he said to the man with the withered hand: “Get up and stand in the center.” And he rose and stood there. Then Jesus said to them: “I ask you men, Is it lawful on the
Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save a life or to destroy it?” After looking around at them all, he said to the man: “Stretch out your hand.” He did so, and his hand was restored. But they flew into a senseless rage, and they began to
talk over with one another what they might do to Jesus" (Luke 6:6-11).
Jesus Christ heals a man with dropsy (edema, an excess buildup of fluid in the body): "On another
occasion he went to eat a meal in the house of one of the leaders of the Pharisees on the Sabbath, and they were closely watching him. And look! a man who had dropsy was in front of him. So in response Jesus asked those versed in the Law and the Pharisees:
“Is it lawful to cure on the Sabbath or not?” But they kept silent. With that he took hold of the man, healed him, and sent him away. Then he said to them: “Who of you, if his son or bull falls into a well, will not immediately pull him out
on the Sabbath day?” And they were not able to reply to this" (Luke 14:1-6).
Jesus Christ heals a blind man: "Now as Jesus was getting near to Jerʹi·cho,
a blind man was sitting beside the road begging. Because he heard a crowd passing by, he began to inquire what was going on. They reported to him: “Jesus the Naz·a·reneʹ is passing by!” At that he cried out: “Jesus, Son of David,
have mercy on me!” And those who were in front began rebuking him, telling him to keep quiet, but all the more he kept shouting: “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Then Jesus stopped and commanded that the man be brought to him. After he came
near, Jesus asked him: “What do you want me to do for you?” He said: “Lord, let me recover my sight.” So Jesus said to him: “Recover your sight; your faith has made you well.” And instantly he recovered his sight, and he
began to follow him, glorifying God. Also, at seeing it, all the people gave praise to God" (Luke 18:35-43).
Jesus Christ heals two blind people: "As Jesus moved on
from there, two blind men followed him, shouting out: “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” After he had gone into the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus asked them: “Do you have faith that I can do this?” They answered him: “Yes,
Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying: “According to your faith let it happen to you.” And their eyes received sight. Moreover, Jesus sternly warned them, saying: “See that nobody gets to know it.” But after
going outside, they made it public about him in all that region" (Matthew 9:27-31).
Jesus Christ heals a deaf mute: "When Jesus returned from the region of Tyre, he
went through Siʹdon to the Sea of Galʹi·lee, through the region of De·capʹo·lis. Here they brought him a deaf man with a speech impediment, and they pleaded with him to lay his hand on him. And he took him aside privately,
away from the crowd. Then he put his fingers into the man’s ears, and after spitting, he touched his tongue. And looking up into heaven, he sighed deeply and said to him: “Ephʹpha·tha,” that is, “Be opened.”
At this his ears were opened, and his speech impediment was removed, and he began speaking normally. With that he ordered them not to tell anyone, but the more he would order them, the more they would proclaim it. Indeed, they were astounded beyond
measure, and they said: “He has done all things well. He even makes the deaf hear and the speechless speak”" (Mark 7:31-37).
Jesus Christ heals a leper:
"There also came to him a leper, pleading with him even on bended knee, saying to him: “If you just want to, you can make me clean.” 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.” Immediately the leprosy vanished from him, and he became clean" (Mark 1:40-42).
The healing of the ten lepers: "While he was going to Jerusalem,
he was passing between Sa·maria and Galilee. And as he was entering a village, ten men with leprosy met him, but they stood at a distance. And they raised their voices and said: “Jesus, Instructor, have mercy on us!” When he
saw them, he said to them: “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” Then as they were going off, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice. And he fell facedown at Jesus’
feet, thanking him. Furthermore, he was a Samaritan. In reply Jesus said: “All ten were cleansed, were they not? Where, then, are the other nine? Did no one else turn back to give glory to God except this man of another nation?”
Then he said to him: “Get up and be on your way; your faith has made you well”" (Luke 17:11-19).
Jesus Christ heals a paralytic: "After this there was a
festival of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now in Jerusalem at the Sheep Gate is a pool called in Hebrew Beth·zaʹtha, with five colonnades. Within these a multitude of the sick, blind, lame, and those with withered limbs were lying down.
But one man was there who had been sick for 38 years. Seeing this man lying there and being aware that he had already been sick for a long time, Jesus said to him: “Do you want to get well?” The sick man answered him: “Sir, I do not have
anyone to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am on my way, another steps down ahead of me.” Jesus said to him: “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” And the man immediately got well, and he picked up his mat and
began to walk" (John 5:1-9).
Jesus Christ heals an epileptic: "When they came toward the crowd, a man approached him, knelt down to him, and said: “Lord, have
mercy on my son, because he is an epileptic and is ill. He falls often into the fire and often into the water. I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him.” In reply Jesus said: “O faithless and twisted generation,
how long must I continue with you? How long must I put up with you? Bring him here to me.” Then Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and the boy was cured from that hour. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said: “Why
could we not expel it?” He said to them: “Because of your little faith. For truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard grain, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing
will be impossible for you.”" (Matthew 17:14-20).
A miracle without knowing it: "As Jesus was going, the crowds pressed in on him. Now there was a woman who
had a flow of blood for 12 years, and she had not been able to get a cure from anyone. She approached from behind and touched the fringe of his outer garment, and immediately her flow of blood stopped. So Jesus said: “Who touched me?” When
they were all denying it, Peter said: “Instructor, the crowds are hemming you in and pressing against you.” But Jesus said: “Someone touched me, for I know that power went out of me.” Seeing that she had not escaped notice,
the woman came trembling and fell down before him and declared before all the people why she touched him and how she was healed immediately. But he said to her: “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace”" (Luke 8:42-48).
Jesus Christ Heals from a Distance: "When he had completed what he had to say to the people, he entered Ca·perʹna·um. Now an army officer’s slave, who was dear
to him, was seriously ill and about to pass away. When he heard about Jesus, he sent some elders of the Jews to him to ask him to come and make his slave well. They came up to Jesus and began to plead with him earnestly, saying: “He is worthy of your
granting him this, for he loves our nation and he himself built our synagogue.” So Jesus went with them. But when he was not far from the house, the army officer had already sent friends to say to him: “Sir, do not bother, for I am not worthy to
have you come under my roof. That is why I did not consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. For I too am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me, and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes,
and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard these things, he was amazed at him, and he turned to the crowd following him and said: “I tell you, not even in Israel have
I found so great a faith.” And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health" (Luke 7:1-10).
Jesus Christ heals a bent woman
for 18 years: "Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And look! a woman was there who had had a spirit of weakness for 18 years; and she was bent double and was unable to straighten up at all. When he saw her, Jesus addressed
her and said: “Woman, you are released from your weakness.” And he laid his hands on her, and instantly she straightened up and began to glorify God. But in response the presiding officer of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus did the cure on
the Sabbath, said to the crowd: “There are six days on which work ought to be done; so come and be cured on those days, and not on the Sabbath day.” However, the Lord answered him: “Hypocrites, does not each one of you on the Sabbath
untie his bull or his donkey from the stall and lead it away to give it something to drink? Should not this woman, who is a daughter of Abraham and whom Satan held bound for 18 years, be released from this bondage on the Sabbath day?” Well, when he said
these things, all his opposers began to feel shame, but the entire crowd began to rejoice at all the glorious things he did" (Luke 13:10-17).
Jesus Christ heals the daughter
of a Phoenician woman: "Leaving there, Jesus now went into the region of Tyre and Siʹdon. And look! a Phoe·niʹcian woman from that region came and cried out: “Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David. My daughter is cruelly demon possessed.”
But he did not say a word in answer to her. So his disciples came and began to urge him: “Send her away, because she keeps crying out after us.” He answered: “I was not sent to anyone except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
But the woman came and did obeisance to him, saying: “Lord, help me!” In answer he said: “It is not right to take the bread of the children and throw it to the little dogs.” She said: “Yes, Lord, but really the little dogs
do eat of the crumbs falling from the table of their masters.” Then Jesus replied to her: “O woman, great is your faith; let it happen to you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed from that hour on" (Matthew 15:21-28).
The Miraculous Catch: "On one occasion when the crowd was pressing in on him and listening to the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gen·nesʹa·ret.
And he saw two boats docked at the lakeside, but the fishermen had got out of them and were washing off their nets. Going aboard one of the boats, which was Simon’s, he asked him to pull away a bit from land. Then he sat down, and he began teaching
the crowds from the boat. When he stopped speaking, he said to Simon: “Pull out to where it is deep, and let down your nets for a catch.” But in reply Simon said: “Instructor, we toiled all night and caught nothing, but at your
word I will lower the nets.” Well, when they did this, they caught a great number of fish. In fact, their nets began ripping apart. So they motioned to their partners in the other boat to come and assist them, and they came and filled both boats,
so that these began to sink. Seeing this, Simon Peter fell down at the knees of Jesus, saying: “Depart from me, Lord, because I am a sinful man.” For both he and those with him were overwhelmed with astonishment at the catch of fish they
had taken, and the same was true of both James and John, Zebʹe·dee’s sons, who were partners with Simon. But Jesus said to Simon: “Stop being afraid. From now on you will be catching men alive.” So they brought the boats back to land
and abandoned everything and followed him" (Luke 5:1-11).
Jesus Christ calms down a storm: "And when he went aboard a boat, his disciples followed him. Now look! a great
storm arose on the sea, so that the boat was being covered by the waves; but he was sleeping. And they came and woke him up, saying: “Lord, save us, we are about to perish!” But he said to them: “Why are you so afraid, you with little faith?”
Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and a great calm set in. So the men were amazed and said: “What sort of person is this? Even the winds and the sea obey him.”" (Matthew 8:23-27). This miracle shows that in the earthly paradise
there will be no more storms or floods that will cause disasters.
Jesus Christ walking on the sea: "After sending the crowds away, he went up on the mountain by himself
to pray. When evening came, he was there alone. By now the boat was many hundreds of yards away from land, struggling against the waves because the wind was against them. But in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea.
When they caught sight of him walking on the sea, the disciples were troubled, saying: “It is an apparition!” And they cried out in their fear. But at once Jesus spoke to them, saying: “Take courage! It is I; do not be afraid.”
Peter answered him: “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you over the waters.” He said: “Come!” So Peter got out of the boat and walked over the waters and went toward Jesus. But looking at the windstorm, he became
afraid. And when he started to sink, he cried out: “Lord, save me!” Immediately stretching out his hand, Jesus caught hold of him and said to him: “You with little faith, why did you give way to doubt?” After they got up into
the boat, the windstorm abated. Then those in the boat did obeisance to him, saying: “You really are God’s Son”" (Matthew 14:23-33).
Jesus Christ multiplies
the loaves: "After this Jesus set out across the Sea of Galʹi·lee, or Ti·beʹri·as. And a large crowd kept following him, because they were observing the miraculous signs he was performing in healing the sick. So Jesus went up
on a mountain and sat down there with his disciples. Now the Passover, the festival of the Jews, was near. When Jesus raised his eyes and saw that a large crowd was coming to him, he said to Philip: “Where will we buy bread for these people to eat?”
However, he was saying this to test him, for he knew what he was about to do. Philip answered him: “Two hundred de·narʹi·i worth of bread is not enough for each of them to get even a little.” One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s
brother, said to him: “Here is a little boy who has five barley loaves and two small fish. But what are these among so many?” Jesus said: “Have the people sit down.” As there was a lot of grass in that place, the men sat down there,
about 5,000 in number. Jesus took the bread, and after giving thanks, he distributed it to those who were sitting there; he did likewise with the small fish, and they had as much as they wanted. But when they had eaten their fill, he said to his disciples:
“Gather together the fragments left over, so that nothing is wasted.” So they gathered them together and filled 12 baskets with fragments left over by those who had eaten from the five barley loaves. When the people saw the sign he performed, they
began to say: “This really is the Prophet who was to come into the world.” Then Jesus, knowing that they were about to come and seize him to make him king, withdrew again to the mountain all alone" (John 6:1-15). There will be plenty of food
all over the earth (Psalms 72:16; Isaiah 30:23).
Jesus Christ resurrects the son of a widow: "Soon afterward he traveled to a city called Naʹin, and his disciples and
a large crowd were traveling with him. As he got near the gate of the city, why look! there was a dead man being carried out, the only son of his mother. Besides, she was a widow. A considerable crowd from the city was also with her. When the Lord caught sight
of her, he was moved with pity for her, and he said to her: “Stop weeping.” With that he approached and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. Then he said: “Young man, I say to you, get up!” And the dead man sat up and started
to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. Now fear seized them all, and they began to glorify God, saying: “A great prophet has been raised up among us,” and, “God has turned his attention to his people.” And this news concerning
him spread out into all Ju·deʹa and all the surrounding country" (Luke 7:11-17).
Jesus Christ resurrects Jairus' daughter: "While he was yet speaking, a representative
of the presiding officer of the synagogue came, saying: “Your daughter has died; do not bother the Teacher any longer.” On hearing this, Jesus answered him: “Have no fear, only have faith, and she will be saved.” When he reached the
house, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John, James, and the girl’s father and mother. But people were all weeping and beating themselves in grief for her. So he said: “Stop weeping, for she did not die but is sleeping.”
At this they began to laugh at him scornfully, because they knew she had died. But he took her by the hand and called to her: “Child, get up!” And her spirit returned, and she rose immediately, and he ordered that something be given her to eat.
Well, her parents were beside themselves, but he instructed them to tell no one what had happened" (Luke 8:49-56).
Jesus Christ resurrects his friend Lazarus, who has been dead
for four days: "Jesus had not yet come into the village, but he was still in the place where Martha had met him. When the Jews who were with Mary in the house consoling her saw her get up quickly and go out, they followed her, supposing that she was
going to the tomb to weep there. When Mary arrived where Jesus was and caught sight of him, she fell at his feet and said to him: “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus saw her weeping and the Jews who had come
with her weeping, he groaned within himself and became troubled. He said: “Where have you laid him?” They said to him: “Lord, come and see.” Jesus gave way to tears. At that the Jews began to say: “See, what affection he had for
him!” But some of them said: “Could not this man who opened the eyes of the blind man prevent this one from dying?” Then Jesus, after groaning again within himself, came to the tomb. It was, in fact, a cave, and a stone was lying against
it. Jesus said: “Take the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it has been four days.” Jesus said to her: “Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the
glory of God?” So they took the stone away. Then Jesus raised his eyes heavenward and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. True, I knew that you always hear me; but I spoke on account of the crowd standing around, so that they may
believe that you sent me.” When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Lazʹa·rus, come out!” 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.”" (John 11:30-44).
The last miraculous catch (shortly after the resurrection of Christ): "However, just as
day was breaking, Jesus stood on the beach, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. Then Jesus said to them: “Children, you do not have anything to eat, do you?” They answered: “No!” He said to them: “Cast the net
on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” So they cast it, but they were not able to haul it in because of the large number of fish. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter: “It is the Lord!” Now Simon Peter, on
hearing that it was the Lord, put on his outer garment, for he was naked, and plunged into the sea. But the other disciples came in the small boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not a long way from land, only about 300 feet (90 m) away"
Jesus Christ did many other miracles. They allow us to strengthen our faith, encourage us and gain insight into the many blessings that there will be in the earthly paradise.
The written words of the Apostle John summarize very well the prodigious number of miracles that Jesus Christ has made, as a guarantee of what will happen in the earthly paradise: "There are also, in fact, many other things that Jesus did, which if ever they
were written in full detail, I suppose the world itself could not contain the scrolls written" (John 21:25).
