It seemed to be the preference of Jesus to do private miracles more than public ones. For example, the scriptures say “They brought to him (Jesus) one who was deaf and spoke with difficulty, and entreated him to lay his hands on him.” He could have done a real flashy miracle, but the text continues, “And he took him aside from the multitude by himself.” When they are alone and private, Jesus used an unconventional healing approach: “And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue. Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly.” This was a private wonderful miracle.
A few verses later Jesus is in Bethsaida and “And they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him.” Again, another perfect chance to impress others with a “power ministry” move to wow the audience. But the text says, “So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town.” Now they are alone and private, “And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything. And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.” Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.” Another private, powerful, wonderful miracle.
There were times when he multiplied loaves and fishes, calmed storms, raised Lazarus from the dead, and did other public miracles, but it just seems like he preferred private miracles the best. So do I.
“Then He sent him away to his house, saying. “Neither go into the town, nor tell anyone in the town.” Jesus
