Miracles by their very nature are not 'normal' or reproducible phenomenon. That only the scriptures document them is of little surprise as so little in the way of documentation from that period survives today. Much of it is Roman and they actively worked to hide what Christ said and did- so it is no surprise that they would not mention miracles.

the apostles. They made them up, plain and simple.
...Those must have been very turbulent times, indeed,
for an entire civilization to jump on the Christianity bandwagon,
while abandoning the pagan traditions of their parents and
period of several hundred years, during which the overwhelming
number of Christians and converts seriously believed the
world would end soon and Jesus would return as Messiah. The
upheaval was such that the majority of the Roman male population
withdrew from society
...Jesus seems to have been in the right place at the right time,
but the true testament to the failure of Christianity, in my
humble opinion, is the rise of Muhammad a mere 600 years
after Christ's birth, for if Jesus Christ the Annointed was
truly humanity's saviour, then why the need for Islam? Or
anything else after 33 A.D.?
