The three types of healings are cures, exorcisms, where demons are cast away, and the resurrection of the dead. The Transfiguration of Jesus is unique because the miracle happened to Jesus. Jesus delivered miracles freely and never accepted payment, unlike some high priests who charged those who were healed. The largest group of miracles in the New Testament involve cure. Sometimes it was necessary for Jesus to speak only a few words and other times use certain materials such as mud or spit.

Jesus, in his first public display of his ministry, changed water into wine. Now, a question rises: “How is changing water into wine a sign of Jesus’ deity?” This miracle certainly showed that Jesus had power, but how does this miracle show that Jesus is God? The miracle demonstrates Christ’s deity in a couple ways. First, because it shows that Jesus is over all of creation. God created the whole world; no man can create anything.
It does not take long when reading the gospel of Mark to encounter the first miracle that Jesus does. Most of the Gospel itself is dedicated to the miracles that he performed. In the gospel of Mark there is a great emphasis on the mysteriousness surrounding Jesus. Jesus according to Mark was very keen about keeping his identity a secret. There is a point in the gospel where Jesus cures a deaf man.

The Gospel of Thomas In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus is described as a wise man, that believed in the kingdom of his Father, the power of peace, and that everyone who followed his teachings would be allowed into the kingdom. Although the Gospel of Thomas has a lot of similarities with other gospels it does leave out various points that were important to early Christianity. Christianity is the religion about Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. However in the Gospel of Thomas neither of the crucifixion or resurrection are directly talked about. Thomas does talk about death in some of the sayings, but never specifically about Jesus’s crucifixion or resurrection.
Unlike all the other gospel accounts, John begins his book not with Jesus’ birth, but with a theological prologue explaining the reasons and nature of Jesus’ incarnation as well as the purpose he had in taking on human flesh. This is in turn followed by the identification of Jesus as the incarnate son of God by the prophet John the Baptist. Immediately following Jesus’ baptism, John records his selection of several disciples, his first miracle (turning water into wine at a wedding at Cana), and his first Passover in Jerusalem, where he cleansed the temple. This is the start of what Marty calls, “The Book of Signs” in which he performs miracles. While in Jeru...

And if the Apostles were only seeing hallucinations, why didn't Christ's enemies point out His body in the tomb? Also, Thomas did not believe the Apostles until he had actually seen Jesus and felt his wounds. The fourth commonly used argument against the Resurrection is the claim Christ had not actually risen, but the Apostle's memory of Him was so strong they used the Resurrection story as a symbol that Christ was still alive in their lives. The Gospels proclaim that the resurrected Jesus was a living man of flesh and blood.
