Jesus’ miracles related primarily to His ministry on earth in which He proclaimed the kingdomthe prophets had promised and gave examples of its conditions.
“Greater works than these”
“Greater in extent (through the worldwide preaching of the gospel) and effect (the spiritual redemption and placing in the Body of Christ multitudes of people since the Day of Pentecost). These will be done through prayer in His name (v 13).” -- Charles Ryrie
Jesus’ purpose today is not to reproduce examples of
kingdom conditions (e.g. healings) as He did while He
was on earth, but to take “from among the Gentiles a
people for His name,” building His ekklesia.
