The first miracle

John 2, 1-11 says: 

1 On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited. 3 And they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the feast had all been used, and the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ 4 Jesus said, ‘Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.’ 5 His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ 6 There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. 7 Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and they filled them to the brim. 8 Then he said to them, ‘Draw some out now and take it to the president of the feast.’ 9 They did this; the president tasted the water, and it had turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from — though the servants who had drawn the water knew — the president of the feast called the bridegroom 10 and said, ‘Everyone serves good wine first and the worse wine when the guests are well wined; but you have kept the best wine till now.’ 11 This was the first of Jesus’ signs: it was at Cana in Galilee. He revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.”

Not only the New testament talks about jesus Miracles.

Jesus miracles in the Quran

In the Quran we read about Mary (Maryam) and jesus (Isa):

“And [mention] the one who guarded her chastity, so We blew into her [garment] through Our angel [Gabriel], and We made her and her son a sign for the worlds.” ( Quran 21:91 )

And We did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure Spirit.”  ( Quran 2:87 )

These texts are the reason why good Muslims consider Jesus (Isa as they call him), one of the greatest prophets.

A miracle done by Jesus, mentioned only  in the Qur’an

The Quran tells about  some miracles. Like this on the table where Jesus asks Allah for a miracle, of which you are in www.islamreligion.com :

“When the disciples said: O Jesus, son of Mary!  Is your Lord able to send down for us a table spread with food from heaven?  He said: Observe your duty to God, if ye are true believers. They said: We desire to eat of it and our hearts be at rest, and that We may know that you have spoken truth to us, and that We may be witnesses thereof.  Jesus, son of Mary, said: ‘O God, our Lord, send down for us a Table laden with food out of heaven, that shall be for us a recurring festival, the first and last of us, and a miracle from You. And provide us our sustenance, for You are the best of providers!” ( Quran 5:112-114 )

Jesus miracles always with God/Allahs permission.

The Quran clearly tells the Jesus does miracles always with Allahs permission.

In Quran 3:49 your read:

“And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], ‘Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah . And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead – by permission of Allah . And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.”

I never read about this bird miracle in the Gospels.

Conclusions

 According to Christianity Jesus is God incorporated.

But Jesus himself always talked about God as “my father” and himself as “Son of Man” or in Hebrew “Elohim”.

Jesus emphased the difference between him and God.

The Quran confirms this difference in position. God is one (despite the frequent use o f “we”):

Jesus (Isa in Arabic) is a Messenger as Quran 2:87 writes  “We gave ‘Îsa (jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Ruh-ul-Qudus”

I rely on the words said by Jesus according to the Gospels as It is obvious for me that that it is the “father” or God or Allah  that decides what can be done or not.  The Quran emphasizes this beingcoerent witht the fact that there is only one God.
