    D120 - It is implied that signs and wonders follow the apostles

    2 Cor 12:12

    Paul said that the marks of a true apostle included

    ‘signs and wonders and mighty works’ (2 Cor 12:12).

    Scripture tells us of the miracles performed by Jesus’ apostles. For example:

    • The Apostles Peter and John were involved in miraculous healing, e.g. a paralyzed man was healed (Acts 3:6),
    • The Apostle Peter had specific word of knowledge as seen in the case of Ananias and his wife (Acts 5:1-9),
    • Paul’s handkerchiefs and aprons could heal others (Acts 19:12). NB: Paul called himself the apostle of the Gentiles (Rom 11:13) although he was not one of Jesus’ twelve original apostles,
    • Jesus sent out seventy-two disciples (definitely not a small number) to perform miracles (Luke 10:1-17).

    Then, there was Philip who was miraculously ‘teleported’ from the desert to the town of Azotus (Acts 8:40).

    Having said that, we know that a cousin of his, John the Baptist, a man commended by Jesus with words like –

    ‘I tell you among those born of women none is greater than John (the Baptist)’ (Luke 7:28),

    John did no miracles (John 10:41). Then again, John the Baptist was not an apostle but a ‘forerunner’ of Jesus (Matt 3:3).
