Jesus manifested his glory through the miracles he performed. The miracle of turning water into wine at Cana was the beginning of showing his glory. “This miraculous sign was the first that Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee. In this way he manifested his glory and his disciples believed in him” (Jn 2:11). The disciples believed in Jesus as the Messiah because of these signs of glory. The glory that Jesus revealed was also the glory of his Father. Before raising Lazarus from the dead, Jesus said, “This illness will not end in death; rather it is for God’s glory, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it” (Jn 11:4). Jesus shared his glory with his disciples (Jn 17:22) and they continued performing miracles in the name of Jesus after the Pentecost.
Jesus glorified the Father through his actions (Jn 14:13) and promised, “whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these” (Jn 14:12). Jesus instructs us, “your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father” (Mt 5:16). Let us continue the virtuous deeds of Jesus.
