A miracle is defined as an event that contradicts existing scientific principles and hence attributed to supernatural causes, usually an act of God. The New Testament uses the words signs, wonders, and miracles to describe the acts of God in different synopsis. The Gospel according to John uses the term works to refer to the miracles of Jesus.
The word miracle emanates from the Greek word Dunamis which means power, denoting power of a supernatural being. Miracles were done by the Lord Jesus Christ mainly for the purpose of: bringing about faith in God, to confirm the Word of God, proof to the peoples that indeed God the Father is with the Son Jesus Christ, and that Jesus is the Promised Messiah as attested to by the Prophets
