Whatsoever He Saith Unto You, Do It

In the Book of John we will see seven miracles that reveal the goodness and Godness of Jesus. We will see Jesus:

Cause a crippled man to walk (John 5:1-18)
Feeding a the multitude with little (John 6:1-15)

Restore sight to a blind man (John 9:1-41)
Raise a friend from the dead (John 11:1-57)
