How Many Miracles Of Jesus Are In Mark? – Quickly answered


Open Bible with the Gospel of St. Mark in the background, in the foreground it says in white letters, how many miracles are in mark?

There is a lot of different information about the number of miracles in the gospels, particularly for the gospel of Mark; therefore, I wanted to share my findings in this article to give you the best resource I can give you.

In total, there are 22 miracles recorded in the gospel of Mark. They consist of 11 healings, six wondrous miracles, four exorcisms, and one passage speaks of Jesus raising the dead. It is said, Mark dedicates more of his account to Jesus’ miracles than the other gospel writers do.

Below, I want to go into more detail about the miracle accounts in the gospel of Mark, share why I come up with the number 22, and answer related questions.

How many miracles are in the Gospel of Mark?

There are a total of 22 miracle accounts recorded in the gospel of Mark. The number of miracles might vary because it depends on what one would claim as a miracle. 

I included all records of Jesus’ divine wonders, even the mass healings.

In the next section, you will see how many miracles I personally assigned to four main categories. As mentioned above, the 22 miracles recorded in the gospel of Mark are 11 healings, four exorcisms, six wondrous miracles, and one raising the dead.

I put together a couple of helpful articles in my research on Jesus’ miracles in the four gospels. 

They’ll give you a good overview and might present a helpful resource for your Bible study.

This article is just one of ten or so. I list the most relevant articles here:

What miracles are in Mark?

I sorted all 22 accounts of Jesus’ miracles into four categories: healings, exorcisms, raising the dead, and other wondrous miracles. Obviously, one could assign more or different groups, but I believe these four give you a good overview. 

The accounts are listed out of order but include their Bible reference. If you want to see them all in order, you can use this helpful overview here.

Again, not all accounts speak of single miracles. Some passages talk about mass healings or mass exorcisms. But I still score the single passage as only one miracle account.
