If my memory serves me I do not think that the miracles performed in the New Testament have descriptions of visual phenomena. Perhaps there are bright lights with one or two, but usually the event just seems to occur without much visual grandeur associated with it. While halos and back-lighting are standard, there are not that many paintings of Jesus that show him performing acts accompanied by lights, shapes and colors. To me these images make Jesus look like some kind of wizard casting a magical spell.
