In today's Gospel, when Jesus cured the servant of the royal official, St. John remarked that this was the second of the signs performed by Jesus. While the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke tell the stories of hundred of miracles performed by Jesus, John in his Gospel recorded only seven such miracles, but instead of calling them miracles, he calls them sign,
At the end of his Chapter Twenty John spoke of the importance of the "signs" Jesus performed.
"Now Jesus did many other signs in th presence of is disciples that are not written in this book. But these are written that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through this belief you may have life in his name."
Those signs might be: Changing water to wine; Curing the royal; official's' servant; Curing the paralytic at the pool of Bethesda; Feeding 5000 with two loves; Walking on the water; Bringing Lazarus back to life; and the Resurrection.
