THE MIRACLE WORKER
Our ancient prophets spoke of a time when the Messiah comes, great miracles will be performed by Him, and it would serve one of many proofs that he was true and prophesied one that our people were waiting for. In Isaiah 35:5–6, the prophet speaks of the day of salvation this way: “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert.”
In Matthew 11, John the Baptist following his imprisonment was wondering if the Messiah had come, —he sends his disciples to ask Yeshua if he really is the Coming One. Yeshua responds in this way: “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hears, and the dead are raised, and the poor have good news preached to them. And blessed is the one who is not offended by me” (Matthew 11:4–6; see the parallel passage in Luke 7:20–23). Then Yeshua alluded to other passages besides Isaiah 35 (which speaks of the blind, the deaf, the lame, and the mute). Isaiah 26:19 says, “Your dead shall live”; Isaiah 29:18 also refers to the healing of the deaf and the blind, while Isaiah 61:1 speaks of bringing good news to the poor (quoted by Yeshua in the synagogue of Nazareth (Luke 4:18–19).
In Yeshua's ministry, we see him do all these miracles. Below are all the miracles of our Jewish Messiah. One by one, he reveals His true identity as the Messiah of Israel and the Lamb of God that came for all.
