Do Miracles Imply Divinity?


Some associate Jesus with divinity because he performed miracles.  Many Unitarian Christians and all Muslims point out that Jesus did indeed perform miracles, but by the will of God and not through any divine powers of his own.  To repeat the quote of Acts 2:22:

“Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves also know” (italics mine)

In conformity with both the Bible and Holy Quran, Muslims contend that the miracles of Jesus were performed by the power of God.  As the Holy Quran states,

Then will Allah say: “O Jesus the son of Mary!  Recount My favor to you and to your mother.  Behold!  I strengthened you with the holy spirit, so that you spoke to the people in childhood and in maturity.  Behold!  I taught you the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel.  And behold!  You made out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My leave, and you breathed into it, and it became a bird by My leave, and you healed those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave.  And behold!  You brought forth the dead by My leave. (Quran 5:110)
