Joh 14:4-5,Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it

Col 1:16, For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.
"Lord God" Lord is YHVH. Yod = the hand Hey = behold Vav = nail Hey = behold

Words translated as miracle in the NT, works (ergon), wonders (teras), power (dunamis), signs (semeion).
Miracles, are the official seal of Christ's Deity. Miracles confirm the credibility of God's messengers.

A unique and extraordinary event causing wonder (teras), brought about by divine power (dunamis), accomplishing some work (ergon), that authenticates a messenger and his message as being from God (semeion) sign).

Joh 21:25, Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

Mic 4:8, "As for you, tower of the flock, Hill of the daughter of Zion, To you it will come- (or to you it will be revealed).

Mic 5:2, “But you, Bethlehem though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for Me     One who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.

None of the Gospels was written solely to provide an accurate historical account of the life of the Messiah.

Although they do give us some idea of that history, after all it is His Story.

Gospel is directed at a specific audience with events portrayed in such a way as to be the most meaningful to that audience.

In each Gospel the words and the actions of Jesus are paramount. Also, The use of phrases, the way the events are recorded, the importance of the first and last miracles listed in that Gospel. All written so as to emphasize the points of that Gospel.

Matthew was written to the Jews. His Gospel demonstrated who Jesus was. Genealogy begins with Abraham and runs through King David. Undisputable evidence that Jesus was Messiah, the promised One, The Lion of Judah, from the line of David.  

There are more references to events foretold of in the Old Testament prophecies and fulfilled in the Life of Jesus in Matthew than in any other Gospel account.

The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed.

Naaman got angry…because of his self-importance and arrogance.

Mat 8:1-4, When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean."

"I am willing," He said. "Be clean!" Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. Then Jesus said to him, "See that you don't tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."

1Jo 1:9, If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse (katha-reed-zo) us from all unrighteousness.
