Jesus’ miracles were not merely ‘works of power’ but they were ‘signs’, intended to reveal Jesus as God’s promised Messiah and communicate his Mission. Typically in John’s gospel, Jesus performs a sign, which is then followed by some kind of controversy and an extended dialogue, through which Jesus reveals himself as the Son of God who is co-worker with God and divine in nature.
