MIRACLES PART TWO (6 - 10):
You’re listening to Wonders of the Bible. This is Debi DeFreitas.
With this broadcast, we will be continuing our Miracles of Jesus series. In our previous program, we covered miracles 1 thru 5. In this installment, we’ll be covering miracles 6 through 10. We are currently in the gospel of Matthew. We will be revisiting each miracle in the other gospels as the series continues.
Let’s begin ...
6. Demons Entering a Herd of Swine
Matthew 8:28-34 -- And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes (Gerga-scenes), there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? 30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters. And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils. And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.
This miracle is also mentioned in Mark 5:1, and in Luke 8:26
7. Healing a Paralytic
Matthew 9:2-8 -- And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city. And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose, and departed to his house. But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men. This miracle is also mentioned in Mark 2:3, and in Luke 5:18
8. Raising the Ruler’s Daughter
Matthew 9:18, 23-26 -- While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples. And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, he said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
This miracle is also mentioned in Mark 5:22,35, and in Luke 8:40-49
9. Healing the Hemorrhaging Woman
Matthew 9:20-22 -- And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: for she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
This miracle is also mentioned in Mark 5:25, and in Luke 8:43
10. Healing the Blind Men
Matthew 9:27-30 -- And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it. But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.
The gospel of Matthew is the only reference to this miracle in the Holy Bible.

MIRACLES OF JESUS PODCAST:
PART ONE (miracles 1 thru 5)
You’re listening to Wonders of the Bible. This is Frank DeFreitas. If someone asked you how many miracles Jesus performed, would you be able to give them an answer? I know that if someone asked me, I would probably answer by saying “a lot”. The actual number of miracles listed in the Bible is 37. It is said that there are many more miracles of Jesus that were never recorded.
Of course, an even MORE difficult question would be to name the miracles. I don’t know how many people would be able to do that! Would you be able to name all 37 miracles? I think it’s fair to say that it would be asking a lot of someone.
With that in mind, I thought I would put together a series of podcasts that would list each and every miracle performed by Jesus. And I’ll turn to the Holy Bible to describe each one.
This podcast will cover miracles 1 thru 5. Future podcasts will cover more.
Usually, the miracles of Jesus are listed in the order that they were performed. However, I’m not going to be listing them that way. I will list them so that you can easily follow along with the programs. For instance, I will begin with the gospel of Matthew, and stay in the Gospel of Matthew, starting in chapter eight. I hope that you will enjoy learning about each one.
So let’s begin...
1 . Cleansing a Leper
Matthew 8:1-3 -- When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
This miracle is also mentioned in Mark 1:40; and Luke 5:12
2. Healing a Centurion’s Servant
Matthew 8:5-8 -- And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
This miracle is also mentioned in Luke 7:1
3. Healing Peter’s Mother-in-Law
Matthew 8:14-15 -- And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
This miracle is also mentioned in Mark 1:30; and in Luke 4:38
4. Healing the Sick at Evening
Matthew 8:16-17 -- When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
This miracle is also mentioned in Mark 1:32; and Luke 4:40
5. Stilling the Storm
Matthew 8:23-27 -- And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
This miracle is also mentioned in Mark 4:35; and Luke 8:22
