>>What is there to differentiate the miraculous accounts of Matthew and other gospels from miraculous tales found in other ancient literature?<<

I have not done an extensive comparision, but to me the Bible seems to have fewer miracles, with specific purpose for the miracles, in contrast to the extensive and sometimes relatively random magic and miracles found in, e.g., OT and NT apocryphal writings, stories of the saints, classical mythology, or Harry Potter.
