Remarkable events which witness to the will of God, such as the rainbow (Gen. 9:12) or the plagues wrought by Moses and Aaron in Egypt (Exod. 10:2). In the NT the Jews demanded miraculous signs from Jesus (Matt. 12:38), which he refused. In John's gospel the miracles are called signs (semeia in Greek) which are intended to produce faith (John 20:30–1). Jesus would therefore be accepted as the one who performs the works of God, which are the eschatological acts of salvation (John 5:20–3).
