So, what does the Bible mean when it refers to miracles? The Hebrew Old Testament uses words that mean literally ‘signs’ or ‘wonders’, while the Greek New Testament refers to ‘acts of power’ and ‘signs’. The Bible, therefore, emphasizes the ‘sign meaning’ or significance of the event, together with the evident power displayed and the wonder evoked in those who witness it.[1]
