I'm just asking as a general question, not to ruffle feathers or for others to bash here. But it seems to me that he was somewhat of a magician, technically speaking. He turned water into wine, walked on water, raised the dead. I am in no way mocking the Christian faith. I'm just asking a simple question.
In your own words, how do you explain the things that he did. I realize according to the stories of the bible that he was half man half son of God, i get that part. I'm just wondering if you would consider this magic or just a supernatural occurence. I only ask because someone I know who is not christian thought of him as a great healer, teacher and magician.

IDK that he even existed. My opinion is that true magic is, in and of itself, a supernatural occurrence. He was in essence a psychic healer who used witchcraft or magic. But because he was the supposed son of god that makes it ok. Anyone else who does the exact same thing is evil. ( Insert eye roll for sarcasm.) I don't want to call him a magician, because I associate them as humans using sleight of hand and such to trick the eye. Not true magic. If he lived I would view him as a great humanitarian and psychic healer.
