Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g5059 Greek: teras

Wonder (Noun and Verb):

"something strange," causing the beholder to marvel, is always used in the plural, always rendered "wonders," and generally follows semeia, "signs;" the opposite order occurs in Act 2:22, 43; 6:8, RV; Act 7:36; in Act 2:19 "wonders" occurs alone. A sign is intended to appeal to the understanding, a "wonder" appeals to the imagination, a power (dunamis) indicates its source as supernatural. "Wonders" are manifested as Divine operations in thirteen occurrences (9 times in Acts); three times they are ascribed to the work of Satan through human agents, Mat 24:24; Mar 13:22; 2Th 2:9.
