One of the important means of Jesus to proclaim the gospel was miracles through which he attempted to lead the people to the faith in God and also the faith in him being the Son of God. Jesus' miracles can generally be classified into four as nature miracles, healing miracles, exorcism, and miracles of bringing back to life. This is an attempt to make a brief analysis of the miracles of Jesus, their types, characteristics, different possible approaches to understand them and a theological overview.

In our age of theological relativism, Jesus' question to His own disciples continues to ring true: "Who do the people say that the Son of Man is?" Through Jesus' seven miracles and His seven "I Am" sayings, the apostle John provides a clear answer to that all-important question. Furthermore, what do Jesus' miracles represent? Are they designed to point to something or someone? In our "supernatural-crazed" culture that affects even evangelical Christianity, it is refreshing to be reminded that biblical miracles were never arbitrary but were always purposeful, authenticating God's message and His messenger(s). In the Gospel of John, the miracles of Jesus are both Christological, that is, they highlight Jesus' Person, and eschatological, that is, they foreshadow the work the Messiah will do in His future Advent. The miracles remind us that God's desire for every believer is first and foremost a spiritual relationship with Him through His Son. Furthermore, Jesus' miracles also remind us that God's work in and for every believer will be fully and ultimately realized in the everlasting life.

Most Christians know the stories of Jesus healing people and controlling nature, but many are less sure why Jesus did these things or how they relate to their lives today. Theologian, professor, and author Simon J. Kistemaker carefully examines each of Jesus's miracles. He lays out the cultural background, explains symbolism and Old Testament connections, and fleshes out the details of each story. Each chapter also includes a section focused on how the miracle relates to the life of the modern follower of Jesus. Kistemaker's scholarly attention to detail coupled with accessible explanations and application will make this book valuable to everyone from lay readers to pastors looking for sermon material.
