Throughout Scripture, God has used miraculous signs and wonders to confirm His Word. In Egypt, God confirmed His promises to the children of Israel. In the wilderness, He continued to confirm His Word through signs and wonders. Jesus said of His own works that they confirm who He is.
When Peter and John went to the temple to pray, they met a man lame from birth at the Beautiful Gate. The miracle that gave this man his legs amazed the onlookers in the temple. Peter, seizing upon their amazement, points to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who glorified His Servant, Jesus Christ. It was this same Servant whom the Jewish leaders disavowed and asked for a murderer to be released instead (Acts 3:14). But more amazing than giving a lame man working legs, Jesus gives those who believe in Him eternal life.
