Jesus puts his fingers into a man’s ears and spits his saliva on to his finger and touches the man’s tongue with his finger to show that the power to heal him comes from him and that he is the God who heals

Jesus Heals a Deaf and Mute Man

(Isaiah 35:1-10; Matthew 9:32-34)

Mark 7 v 31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. 32 And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. 33 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; 34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. 35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. 36 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; 37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

King James Bible

Deuteronomy 32 v 39:

See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

Isaiah 35

4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will comewith vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

    Jehovah doesn’t need any spiting, nor saliva nor looking at heaven nor any saying of command to open the mouth of an ass of Balaam.
    Num 22:28
    And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

    Is that relevant?

    First. Miracle of Jesus is useful to dismiss the theology of Kenosis (emptiness of the Son). A servant without reputtaion can’t do miracle.

    Secondly, miracle of Jesus still requires the help of certain earthy elements, such as water, saliva, dust, even some threads of garment. Such ability is not much different than that of older prophets, such as Elisha who cleansed Naaman’s leprosy thru the water of river.
