In this article, we will be exploring and outlining the miracles of Jesus Christ in the Book of Matthew in order of how it happened.

Matthew recorded the genealogy of Christ, the birth of Christ, the Baptism of Christ, His miracles, death, burial, and also the resurrection of Christ.

Therefore, the main focus of this writing is to show by the Scripture, the record of his miracles while he was here on earth.

The miracles of Jesus Christ are so great that many people wondered at those things which were done by him.

Even though these miracles of Jesus Christ were done among them, many still choose to deny the truth about the Son of God who came into the world for the sacrifice of the sins of the whole world.

The First Miracles in the Book of Matthew Was Performed in the Midst of Great Crowd

Matthew 4:23-25 
And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 

And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. 

And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan. 

The Second Miracle in the Book Matthew is the Cleansing of a Leper

Jesus Cleanses a Leper
Matthew 8:1-4
When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. 
And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 
And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 
And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 

The Third Miracle in Matthew is the Faith of the Centurion

The Faith of a Centurion

Mat 8:5  And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 
Mat 8:6  And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 
Mat 8:7  And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 
Mat 8:8  The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 
Mat 8:9  For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 
Mat 8:10  When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 
Mat 8:11  And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 
Mat 8:12  But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 
Mat 8:13  And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. 
When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Mat 8:30  And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.

Mat 9:4  And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? 
Mat 9:5  For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

Mat 12:11  And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? 
Mat 12:12  How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. 
Mat 12:13  Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other. 
Mat 12:14  Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.
