semeion / σημεῖον

semeion σημεῖον 

It literally means sign or miracle. A portend or representative of something else. A wonder, remarkable event, wonderful appearance, extraordinary phenomenon. The question then becomes a signs, signpost, marker or representative of what? Well, if it is miraculous it would point towards the source of said miracles. Miracles are signs of the presence of God acting in the world in an unusual manner or more specifically an unnatural way. More specifically, where we see signs and wonders it is the Kingdom of God encroaching into the world restoring order to the worlds fallen nature reverting it back to its pre-Fall, pre-cursed state.

Reference: Matthew 12:38, John 2:11, Revelation 12:1
