The miracles

Jesus manifested himself at Capernaum through his preaching, but also through his miracles and healings. It was not Jesus’ wish to manifest himself through his works of healing, for he had no desire to “advertise” himself, but the miracles that he performed brought him closer to the large crowd that asked him for Grace. Moreover, through the miracles it was possible to give greater prominence to the importance of Jesus’ mission: “It was our infirmities that he bore” (Isaiah 53:4), in other words Jesus became a servant expressing love in practical terms, which was the whole purpose of his mission. Among the most emblematic of the miracles, we should note those involving the centurion’s servant, Peter’s mother-in-law, the paralytic, the bleeding woman, and Jairus’ daughter.
