Bible Questions Answered:
“How many miracles did Jesus do?..”
Karen/ Stockton, California U.S.A.
There are some 37 miracles recorded by Jesus in the gospels, and yet it has been the object of much speculation, that our Lord may have done a great deal more.
The reason we may think this are the following verses:
John 20:30 KJV
30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book:
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, The Son Of God; and that believing ye might have Life through His name.
John 21:25 KJV
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
How many other miraculous things did Jesus do? John says, why even the world could not contain the number of books that could be written about them.

James 2:26 KJV

Matthew 5:14-16 KJV
14 Ye are the Light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Keep going on for The Lord, no deed, done in the name of The Lord, is too small, or without its reward!
