Prophecies of the Messiah – His Miracles

Prophecies of the Messiah – His Miracles

The Hebrew Scriptures
Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. (Isaiah 35:4-6)

The New Testament

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. (Matthew 9:35)

And when John [the Baptist] had heard in prison about the works of Messiah, he sent two of his disciples and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?” Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.” (Matthew 11:2-6)

Quotations and Comments

In fact the Messiah is such a Prophet as is stated in the Midrash on the verse, Behold my servant shall prosper, etc., that he will be ‘greater than Moses,’ which is explained to mean that his miracles will be more wonderful than those of Moses; Moses by the miracles which he wrought, drew but a single nation to the worship of God, but the Messiah will draw all nations to the worship of God.” (Rabbi Levi ben Gershom [14th C], on Deuteronomy 34:10)

 

Miracles are very real acts of compassion to the needy and sufferers but they are more than that, they are precursors of the World To Come, they show what God will do for all His redeemed creation one day. He does this through Messiah. Miracles are therefore signs of the Messiah. Just as miracles were signs for Israel and for Pharaoh when Moses spoke about deliverance from slavery, so Messiah’s miracles are signs of a greater deliverance from all the effects of sin in God’s world. Israel and the world has never seen, before or since, anything remotely like the miracles of Yeshua’s ministry.
