One of the essential aspects of Jesus’ ministry during his time on earth was the performance of miracles. According to the Gospel accounts, Jesus was known by the local people as a “miracle-worker,” a person who healed the sick, raised the dead, and cast out demons.
His own resurrection from the dead was of course the greatest miracle of them all — one performed by his Father. Why did he perform such extraordinary signs? Did he have to do that? The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains how, “Jesus accompanies his words with many ‘mighty works and wonders and signs,’ which manifest that the kingdom is present in him and attest that he was the promised Messiah” (CCC 547).
