In John’s gospel Jesus never performs an exorcism, never heals by casting out Satan. In John, Jesus never responds to requests to perform miracles so that people will believe. John the evangelist—the narrator—speaks of the “signs” Jesus performed; Jesus himself in John only speaks of his “works.” And in John there is only one work that matters. Jesus said, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” The late British New Testament Professor C.K. Barrett wrote, “The works [of Jesus] make visible both the character and the power of God”—and I would add, God and Jesus being One.
