The portrait of Jesus is portrayed in the Gospel Matthew with Jesus being seen as the healer and a miracle worker. This is where everyone started to see Jesus differently and gain a new perspective of Jesus. He performed miracles that the people deemed as not possible.

And these gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, are great examples of how he succeeded and what he needed to do in order to help others.
